Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression for Back Pain
Beverly Hills chiropractor Dr. Rashtian knows that every case of back pain is different—some severe situations involving bulging or herniated discs can be particularly excruciating and hard to treat. If you suffer these problems and think that surgery is your only option, please talk with Dr. Rashtian about Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression first. This FDA-approved, highly-targeted form of spinal decompression can regenerate, repair and reshape bulging and herniated discs without surgery—providing you welcome and lasting pain relief while saving you the recovery time and expense of an operation.
The Benefits of Spinal Decompression: a Viable Alternative to Back Surgery
While some very severe cases of back pain may, indeed, require surgery, many people with bulging and herniated discs can successfully avoid operations with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. During treatment, our chiropractor secures you to a comfortable decompression table. Dr. Rashtian then guides the table, via computer, to perform a series of gentle stretching and releasing sessions on targeted areas of your spine. These forces help damaged intervertebral discs in several ways:
- Decompression relieves pinched nerves almost immediately. Bulging and herniated discs pinch nerves, which causes not only back pain and neck pain, but also radiating pain into the arms or legs depending on which disc is damaged and which nerves are affected. Spinal decompression therapy pulls discs back into shape, removing pressure from the nerves and providing welcome pain relief.
- Decompression creates a vacuum force within the discs that pulls fresh circulation and nutrients inside to rehydrate and stimulate internal healing of the damaged discs. This also helps replenish the shock-absorbing inner nucleus of the disc so that it better protects the nerves and vertebrae.
- It stretches and reshapes bulging discs back into their original shape. Again, this relieves pain by releasing pinched nerves and proactively helps the disc to heal itself from the inside out so that invasive corrective procedures such as surgery may not be necessary.
In order to achieve optimum healing and pain relief, our chiropractor recommends an average of 20 short Non-Invasive Spinal Decompression sessions over a short period of time—usually over a course of 4 to 6 weeks, depending on your individual needs.
In addition to these benefits of spinal decompression, this therapy is also very comfortable. We have even had patients fall asleep during therapy because the pain they had endured for so long was suddenly gone and their relief was so profound!
