"Imagine the possibilities if you just felt good again..."
Our trusted team at East Bay Spine And Disc Institute have helped many patients find relief and recover from various back and disc injuries through our unique spinal rehab program. This non-surgical spinal treatment program involves a combination of two very effective therapies for pain relief and recovery, Spinal Decompression Therapy and Laser Therapy.
Laser Therapy is first used during treatment to reduce inflammation and increase blood flow to the tissues surrounding the injury, this will help stimulate and speed up the healing process. Laser Therapy is then followed by Spinal Decompression Therapy.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is performed on a spinal decompression table that applies computerized adjustments to the patient. These computerized adjustments relieve pressure in the spinal column and help restore spinal discs back to normal function. Both therapies can be used as stand alone treatments, but we have found using these therapies in junction with each other provides optimal results and quickier pain relief for patients.
So, if you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, or a disc injury, find out if this program is right for you with a consultation and exam.
Spinal Decompression helps reduce the pressure from the spine that is causing pain and discomfort.
The device used for this treatment provides calculated, computerized adjustments to treat disc injuries and much more.
Spinal Decompression with the DOC is FDA Cleared and backed by clinical research.
We provide a consultation, exam, and x-rays to determine if you are a good candidate for our treatment program.
Our technicians have been trained and certified to treat spine and disc injuries.
We customize our treatment plans to ensure you receive the most effective treatment to aid your recovery.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is non-surgical, non-invasive, drug-free treatment technique that treats patients suffering from chronic back and neck pain. The device used for this treatment provides calculated, computerized adjustments to create space between spinal vertebrae. Spinal Decompression Therapy helps reduce the pressure from the spine that is causing pain and discomfort.
Spinal Decompression Therapy may initially be performed manually to understand the level of pressure a patient can withstand before moving to a specialized device that provides accurate treatment consistently. The doctor or physician will softly stretch the area of the back or neck that is experiencing pain. Upon success of this stretch, the Spinal Decompression Therapy device will continue stretching the area of the spine to provide sustained pain relief by creating negative intradiscal pressure (vacuum effect), which allows fluids and nutrients to return to the spinal discs.
No. Most patients experience a reduction in pain after Spinal Decompression Therapy. With our Spinal Decompression Therapy device, each patient has the option to stop the treatment at any time by simply pushing a button.
Under normal circumstances, each session will take approximately 30 minutes. Basically, the length of time you spend on our device will be determined by the severity of your condition. We will gladly cover this information during your initial consultation.
Typically, patients experience improvement with just a few appointments or after the first week, but everybody is different. Some patients with severe chronic back pain have found quick relief after the first or second treatments. It is important to remember that results from Spinal Decompression Therapy therapy may vary depending on the severity of your condition.
No. Spinal Decompression Therapy the evolution of Traction. In other words, it is the next step. The biggest difference between the two is the “Vacuum Effect” that occurs from Spinal Decompression Therapy, which does not happen with Traction Therapy. In fact, traction therapy may tug on the body in a way that causes the muscles to respond and contract. This response will increase the amount of pressure to the vertebral disc that is affected and, ultimately, create more pain. The Vacuum Effect is so important because it is the negative pressure created through Spinal Decompression Therapy that allows nutrients and oxygen to repopulate the disc area and begin the healing process.
Insurance will normally cover part of your Spinal Decompression Therapy. However, each insurance plan is different, and we will get in touch with your insurance carrier to obtain a clear idea of the amount they will cover during your initial consultation.
