Lumbar Spinal Decompression

drx9000 lumbar spinal decompression 300x236 Lumbar Spinal Decompression | Denver ChiropractorLumbar spinal decompression may be considered in circumstances creating lumbar spinal stenosis, lumbar disc injuries, degenerative disc illness, disc rupture and nerve root impingement. These are symptoms which, in most cases, can be treated with the DRX9000 spinal decompression table.

The idea of intervertebral decompression is not a new thought, modern technology has ran with the concept of  fighting what gravity can do to the body. Inversion tables have actually been used for decades. And while the premise is along the right path, the efficiency doesn’t compare to the what spinal decompression treatments are capable of.

A doctor of chiropractic is likely going to be the health therapy expert that will suggest decompression treatment. Orthopedic physicians and other health care treatment centers also give this kind of treatment but not as commonly.

Lumbar Spinal Decompression For Disc Related Pain

The signs of a ‘slipped’ or herniated disc aren’t limited to but include: radiating discomfort, numbing, tingling down the lower limbs, and back soreness.


Lumbar Spinal Decompression

Lumbar spinal decompression via a non-surgical spinal decompression table is different than spinal decompression surgery. Lumbar spinal decompression therapy is a conservative treatment that attempts to decompress the joints and discs of the lower back. Lumbar spinal decompression may be considered when other conservative treatments have failed.

Some of the symptoms and conditions that may be able to be helped are : sciatica, back and leg pain, spinal stenosis, lumbar facet syndrome or facet arthritis, bulging discs, pinched nerve, herniated discs,and  degenerative discs disease. It may be used as alternative to back surgery in some cases. Remember, all cases  are unique and need to be assessed individually. Lumbar spinal decompression is one possible modality that may be appropriate for some people.

    This treatment for spinal decompression has been a lifesaver for me, I have been able to actually become more active since we started it and it really doesn’t hurt to have it done, I usually bring a book and just read through the treatments.

      Thanks for commenting John,
      With lumbar spinal decompression we sometimes have patients watch videos – not possible with the DRX9000c cervical decompression though. Glad the decompression therapy worked for you.

    Most often spinal decompression therapy is actually comfortable. The distractive forces take away pressure so it can feel really good on the lower back or the neck, which ever area you have symptoms in. Sometimes people with chronic sciatica will notice a complete relief of symptoms while on the machine and believe it or not some fall asleep on the table. occasionally you can be sore after a spinal decompression treatment, sort of like you worked out to hard but it it usually self-limiting and is a necessity to get to the next level of addressing the problem.
