Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal Decompression Therapy Comes to Core Therapies
by Dr. Matt McGowan
At Core Therapies, we are always looking to offer the most beneficial therapy to our patients. One of the growing concerns for our patient population is for the well being of those suffering from acute or sub acute disc injuries. Often times there is little to be done for someone in an acute flare up of a disc injury other than rest and often times patients end up being prescribed pain killers or muscle relaxers. But the unfortunate downside to these highly addictive substances has been well documented and I wanted to find a better solution for our patients. I went looking for another treatment alternative for our patients in serious discomfort. Spinal Decompression Therapy is not new, however the advances that have been made in both the machines themselves as well as the art of using the machines made it an obvious solution for us. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that has been shown to effectively treat disabling lower back and neck pain, associated radiating leg and arm pain, as well as
headaches. Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. Recently both Dr. Meagan and have become certified in the Kennedy Decompression Technique and are proud to announce that we will have a Kennedy Neuroflex Decompression table in at Core Therapies later this month.
Conditions that have been shown to benefit from Decompression Therapy include:
Protruding Disc (Bulge or Herniation)
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative joint disease
Spinal Nerve Root impingement
Spinal hypo mobility
