The entire spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbar) is subject to many stresses over a lifetime. Injuries and age are but two of the factors which can result in damage to the spine. When the intervertebral discs are damaged, they rarely heal completely.
However, the utilization of SpineMED decompression can take “off the pressure” inside the discs and will frequently allow for the retraction of bulges or herniations.
Spinal decompression is a safe, non-invasive therapy designed to facilitate the natural healing of the disc(s).
The treatment is designed to correct various causes of spinal pain, radiculopathy and/or sciatica – not just for symptom relief. Previous spinal surgery is not contraindicated unless hardware has been implanted in the spine.
More information regarding the procedure and whether you may be a candidate for SpineMED decompression is available by simply calling our office. Each patient is treated on an individual basis and the SpineMED decompression therapy takes place under comfortable conditions – lasting about one hour for each session.
Many patients experience significant relief after completing the SpineMED decompression program along with a core strengthening exercise program. Dr. Jose Veliz MD recommends maintaining a healthy weight and using proper posture in order to maximize the benefit one can obtain from SpineMED decompression.
