Dr. Anthony Fava Warns Against Deadly Pain Medication Addiction
Nobody should undergo spinal surgery for back pain without considering Spinal Decompression, a safe and effective noninvasive treatment which has helped many suffering from chronic neck or low back pain, spinal stenosis or sciatica. Traditionally, physicians would treat back and neck pain disorders with oral medication, injections, and prescribed periods of rest, physical therapy, and conservative chiropractic care. Finally patients would find themselves facing back surgery with concerns about risk, pain, expense and the lengthy recovery time often found with surgical procedures.
The latest development in treatment of low back pain and neck pain is the spinal decompression table. This cutting edge device allows us to treat our patients' herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerative disc disease as well as symptoms of posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and sciatica.
In the U.S., 60 million adults take over the counter (O-T-C) pain relievers every day or for several days each week. Ongoing use can lead to serious health risks or even death. More people die in the U.S. than die from accidental opiate prescriptions than die from homicides.
What is Spinal Decompression (NSSD)?
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD) is a process of elongating the spine in a slow, gentle digitally controlled manner in order to relieve pressure on compressed vertebrae and discs. A patient lies on the spinal decompression table and relaxes as the device applies decompression forces to injured areas. This not only takes pressure off of pinched nerves, but also helps to reposition bulging discs and gently pulls extruded disc material back into place. Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal causing nerve compression) have obtained significant and lasting pain relief.
What is the Treatment Session Like?
Spinal decompression utilizes a sophisticated method of cycling you through a series of slow pulls, hold and releases. Depending upon the severity of your condition, your chiropractor will define a treatment program specific to you. Treatment usually consists of 25-30 sessions spread over six to eight weeks, with each session lasting between 30-45 minutes.
Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions, and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of their prescribed NSSD program. The super-smooth transitions between each phase of therapy can make for an experience so relaxing that many patients often fall asleep.
Experts surmise that NSSD stimulates the body’s repair mechanism, providing the building blocks needed to mend injured and degenerated discs. NSSD enables the body to get to work and heal itself! Now there truly is hope for lasting relief without drugs, injections, or surgery!
Advanced Center For Injury & Wellness Center utilizes two of the most sophisticated spinal decompression tables on the market. The DRX 9000 and the Antalgic-Trak.
Dr. Fava has also been a patient that received spinal decompression therapy for low back pain with severe sciatica from a herniated disc in 2008 and has been symptom free since completing the treatments.
