Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
Bodnar Chiropractic Center is preparing to celebrate an important milestone in the treatment of acute back and neck pain in Alexandria, Virginia--the Center’s 1,000th Vertetrac patient. The Vertetrac is used to treat a wide range of spinal disorders, including sciatica, herniated disc, whiplash injury, degenerative changes and spinal stenosis due to disc herniation. A clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review found that 86% of all cases experienced spinal pain relief as a result of direct traction decompression.
If you've heard the terms "spinal decompression" or "spinal traction", you may be familiar with the general concepts behind this therapy. However, the Vertetrac applies these concepts in a very innovative way. According to Chiropractor Brian Bodnar, “The Vertetrac is the only form of ‘active decompression’ on the market today, and our office is one of the few offices in this area that uses it. It’s a unique approach to back and neck pain treatments that integrates a portable cervical or lumbar spine traction unit with a physical therapy program which produces rapid recovery and helps to eliminate the need for hospitalization, drugs, and surgery.”
Dr. Bodnar is very pleased with the Vertetrac’s track record in his office. “We purchased the Vertetrac in July 2006 and have used it on well over 900 patients with great results. Pinched nerves from disc herniation or compressed discs can be relieved very quickly from walking while wearing the Vertetrac traction belt. The devices work particularly well for patients who are experiencing arm or leg symptoms since this treatment allows us to focus directly on the nerve root involved. This therapy typically takes seven to 15 minutes during a routine office visit. Patients often experience improvement after just a few treatments and are usually very surprised and very happy with the quick results.”
