Ventura Spine and Disc recently added Non-surgical Spinal Decompression to its list of specialized services for neck and back pain. Non-Surgical Decompression can treat many serious neck and back pain and conditions such as the following:
- Herniated and Bulging Discs
- Pinched Nerves
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal Stenosis
- Post-Surgical Pain
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression works by lengthening and decompressing the spine over time, which creates negative pressure within the discs. This reversed pressure helps to pull discs and disc material back into place, which relieves pressure on the nerves. Nutrients, oxygen and fluids are also pulled into the disc, which helps to begin the healing process within the disc.
According to Dr. Eric Prestin, owner of Ventura Spine and Disc, “Traditionally, people would receive physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, medication, etc. and could still end up being recommended spinal injections and/or surgery. However, Non-surgical Spinal Decompression can prevent people from having to have spinal injections and surgery.”
Dr. Prestin notes that non-surgical spinal decompression can be a treatment option for anyone from 18-years-old and up, and he sees up to an 89% success rate with his patients.
