Back pain can lead to a lot of discomfort throughout your life. Every bend and turn and step can be uncomfortable. It can literally seem like a chore to do anything, which makes for a long day and a lackluster life. There are times when you simply need to decompress – as in spinal decompression.
At the Rite Medical Clinic, they perform spinal decompression procedures. What this entails is stretching the spine in order to help with the alignment of all of the vertebrae. When the spine is straighter and the vertebrae are aligned correctly, it can reduce a considerable amount of back pain and give you back more range of motion.
With the use of the Triton Decompression System, you may be able to relieve pain, even from a bulging or herniated disc. This has been an Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved method and is completely non-surgical. With the proper positioning and cycles, a disc can undergo a vacuum effect with negative pressure. The outcome is alignment and relief.
Surgery is not always the answer. Many people have had luck with spinal decompression when it is handled properly. At the Rite Medical Clinic, they have used decompression for a number of spinal conditions – even for those who have had unsuccessful spinal surgery.
Patients suffering from herniated discs, pinched nerves and other painful ailments often have good results with spinal decompression. With the Triton Decompression System, patients are positioned correctly on the system, then experience a series of decompressions and relaxations, all on a regulated schedule. The decompression of the spinal column creates a small amount of vacuum between the discs, which can pull the herniated disc tissue back into it’s proper place. In addition, the separation of the discs allows any pinched nerve material to slip out and back into its correct placement along the spine.
At Rite Medical Clinic, we use the spinal decompression to treat a number of different spinal problems. You can see long-term effects with this treatment method because of the increased blood flow created by the decompression rhythm with the system. We can relieve your immediate pain while strengthening your spinal column, lowering your chances of having problems in the future. Most patients enjoy their treatments, which can be scheduled once or twice a week, and some are even so relaxed they fall asleep during the procedure. While pregnant women, patients with screws or plates in their spine and certain other people won’t benefit from this treatment, the majority of patients have great results in as little as 10 weeks.
