Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a specialized traction unit that allows for specific perimeters that can be customized for each individual patient.
Using this technology we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and treats the herniated or bulging disc. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal traction treatment is usually about ten minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal traction treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if spinal traction can help you.
