Lumbar Disc Decompression Therapy
The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation division of the NeuroSpine and Pain Center offers non-surgical Spinal Disc Decompression treatments through use of the FDA approved SpineMED System. This non-surgical treatment option is effective for patients with back pain due to lumbar disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, facet syndrome and spinal stenosis. Clinical studies have shown that SpineMed decompression treatments are more than 82% effective in relieving lower back pain and sciatica.
This treatment is designed to correct the underlying problem, not just relieve the symptoms of low back pain. SpineMed therapy reduces the pressure inside the discs, thereby shrinking disc herniations and drawing in necessary fluids and nutrients. Reduction of the disc pressure also promotes healing of annular tears. Restoring the disc nucleus restores disc height, thereby relieving pressure from inflamed nerve roots and facet joints. SpineMed therapy is so comfortable it is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep during treatments. A regimen of treatments over the course of twenty sessions is usually indicated for most patients.
For an evaluation to be considered for SpineMed therapy, patients should schedule an appointment with our physical medicine/ rehabilitation physician, Dr. David Lutz.
