A revolutionary treatment for back, neck, arm, and leg pain is now available, and Preferred Pain Center in Phoenix, AZ has this state of the art technology. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is a traction based treatment that helps patients avoid surgery and get rid of pain for the following conditions:
- Lower Back Pain
- Mid to Upper Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Arm Pain
- Leg Pain
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Ruptured Discs
- Facet Syndrome
- Spinal Stenosis
- Disc Bulges
- Failed Back or Neck Surgery
- Herniated Discs
The advantages of spinal decompression therapy include the following: It is extremely safe, likely effective, FDA cleared, non-surgical, and very affordable.
"Anyone suffering from back pain should at least explore spinal decompression therapy before deciding
on a treatment," says Ren Scott, a television anchor who has interviewed well over 200 Spinal Decompression patients. He heard success story after story of patients describing their severe pain being alleviated with the decompression services.
"In between my second and third back surgery, I was literally eating vicodin like it was M&M candy. I thought I was going to die", said Angie Horton, one of the patients interviewed. After undergoing spinal decompression therapy, she stated, "I am able to waterski, I'm able to horseback ride, nothing stops me from getting on a plane to visit my out of town daughter. It's wonderful, I could have never done that before."
"It brought my life back to me," said Paul Pratt, a firefighter who was suffering from a herniated disc. All the things I was doing before, playing with the grandchildren, I can do things with them - lifting them, rolling around with them, chasing them, playing with them, all those things came back without limitations."
Research studies regarding spinal decompression are numerous and have routinely shown over a 75% good to excellent outcome. During the therapy, a gentle pull works to allow the spine to relieve pressure and allow the
process to occur.
One of the patients interviewed stated, "I didn't know what to expect. I'm hearing this machine you're going to be put on there, you're going to lay there, and after twenty treatments you're going to feel great. How is that possible - three specialists said you need surgery! After the 12th treatment, it started to go away. I was
amazed. I'm just blessed and thankful that I did not go through surgery."
The FDA cleared spinal decompression therapy in 1996. The treatment is traction-based, with gradual application and release of traction forces designed to "trick" the para-spinal muscles so they do not guard or spasm.
This creates a negative pressure on the spine, which then allows increased blood flow bringing along substantial oxygen and nutrients. This allows the protruded or herniated disc to be pulled back within the normal confines of the disc, which permits healing to occur.
Dr. Sky Moore, a Phoenix chiropractic doctor at Preferred Pain Center stated, "Patients by and large are not in pain while receiving decompression treatment, in fact they often fall asleep. The results we have been seeing for back pain and neck pain in conjunction with PT and chiropractic treatment have been nothing short of excellent. When one considers that a full course of spinal decompression costs less than 5% of spinal surgery it should really be a first line treatment."
A significant amount of decompression centers are located within Pain Management Clinics in the US, and maintain treatment under the supervision of chiropractors who are certified decompression doctors.
Spinal decompression therapy has saved many people from spinal surgery. According to a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, surgery is no more effective than non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic care, for patients with lumbar disc herniation causing sciatica.
