TREATING HERNIATED & DEGENERATED DISCS
Are you up at night suffering from chronic neck or back pain? Do you struggle to get out of your car or to bend down without extreme discomfort? Is there numbness and tingling in your legs or arms? If so, you may have a herniated or degenerated disc. You may even have been diagnosed with this condition. What you may not know is that you can treat herniated and degenerated discs using Spinal Decompression instead of surgery or addictive pain medication at our clinic, Fredericton's HealthSource.
WHAT IS SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression is a type of motorized traction that works by gently stretching the spine. The treatment takes pressure off the spinal discs, which are gel like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated discs may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn helps promote movement of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.
RELIEF WITHOUT MEDICATION OR SURGERY
Fredericton's HealthSource offers Spinal Decompression as part of the clinic’s treatment methods for patients with herniated and degenerated discs. The process begins with a comprehensive exam with x-rays to identify the severity of the injury. If the patient is a candidate for Spinal Decompression treatment, a treatment plan using a combination of Spinal Decompression sessions and Progressive Rehabilitation therapy is then created.
GETTING BACK TO DOING WHAT YOU LOVE
While many patients get significant relief after the first week of treatments, some patients may require up to 4-6 weeks of care to see maximum results depending on the patient’s health, severity of disc damage, duration of symptoms, and lifestyle issues such as smoking, nutrition and physical activity.
