Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Dr. Bryan Hansen, owner and founder of ProSpinal, Inc., brings a highly successful non-surgical solution to chronic and severe neck and low back pain sufferers. The procedure has brought relief to thousands who have suffered with:
- Disc herniations
- Disc bulge
- DDD (Degenerative Disc Disease)
- Facet Arthrosis
Class IV Deep Tissue Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is the non-invasive use of laser energy to generate a photochemical response in damaged or dysfunctional tissue. Laser therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. As rehabilitation specialists know, the main goal of treatment for many when treating painful, debilitating conditions is to facilitate improved function and mobility. Laser therapy is a drug-free, surgery-free technique to help make that goal a reality. When coupled with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression, the benefits are tremeandous.
Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs. This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.
Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the condition being treated. Laser therapy treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing. You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.
Depending on the condition being treated your therapy may be administer through either a contact or non-contact hand piece. The contact hand piece is designed to allow the practitioner to physically manipulate the tissue while administering the treatment, resulting in a laser-massage treatment. This allows for light to penetrate deeper into tissues than the non-contact hand piece due to it’s ability to displace tissue through a laser-massage technique.
Patients generally see results after 3 to 5 treatments. Your doctor will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Dr. Hansen describes the treatment as comfortable, relaxing, and very effective. “This procedure is believed to create a negative pressure in the injured disc allowing herniated and bulging material to return to its normal position which relieves pressure on nerve roots responsible for numbness, tingling, and or weakness in the lower extremity”, explains Hansen.
Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing areas of herniated disc back into place.
Decompression achieves this by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intra-discal pressure. This creates essentially a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure.
As the ligaments that hold disc material in place become stretched or torn due to bulging and herniation, decompression strengthens the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place to heal & prevent future recurrence.
In most cases the healing process requires only a few weeks of treatment on an out-patient basis. We have committed to undergo expert training in the delivery of decompression and dedicate a large portion of our practice to the relief of severe and chronic low back pain. Patients come to us to return to a normal pain free life. "The procedure is known to have a permanent effect and does not require needles, drugs or surgery", says Hansen.
