You’ve got back issues, but you don’t like the potential complications of back surgery, whether it’s the recovery time, the less-than-stellar odds of improvement or the too-high odds of complications.
Fortunately, there are other options available to you in the San Mateo area. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy or disc restoration therapy can provide you with great possibilities for real, long-term healing. Discover your options below.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Options
In the end, surgical and non-surgical spinal decompression therapy options have the same end goal — to restore mobility to the spine, lower pain and improve quality of life. Surgery, however, opens you up to a wide range of risks.
There may be infections that cause you to spend extensive time in the hospital or hooked up to a wound pump, mistakes that cost you mobility rather than regaining it and issues that irritate your nerves, leaving you in significantly more pain than you started. On top of this, there’s an extensive period of time spent in recovery as your muscles knit back together following the surgery. Fortunately, there’s a better way.
Non-Surgical Disc Restoration Therapy
Non-surgical disc restoration therapy involves careful stretching of the spine, changing its position and the forces that are applied to it. This allows the discs to retract under the negative pressure, relieving the pressure that the discs are placing on your nerves and other spinal structures.
This action allows vital nutrients, oxygen and fluids to enter areas which may have otherwise had restricted flow issues previously, promoting true healing. It works very well for a wide range of spinal issues.
Our Five-Step Method
Our five-step spine approach heals your spinal health issues by creating the best possible environment for healing. Starting with non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, we stretch the spine on our decompression table, which is designed to sense muscle tension and prevent muscle spasms and tightening from starting.
Physiotherapy uses a combination of heat and cold, electric muscle stimulation and cool therapy lasers to help promote healing while preventing painful inflammation from starting. Inter-segmental mobilization uses a range of chiropractic adjustment techniques to put the spine through its range of motion using careful, controlled movements.
Nutritional support helps promote healing through detoxification of matter that slows the healing process while avoiding foods that promote inflammation and pain. Finally, exercise rehabilitation, also known as physical therapy, provides you with a range of exercises that build up your muscles and improve your spinal structure to reduce the chances of re-injuring yourself in the future.
We’ve helped many patients recover mobility and lower their pain levels, allowing them to return to the activities they love. We’d like the opportunity to help you. Our experienced practitioners will develop a customized healing regimen to suit your physical limitations, pain level, structural issues and other needs.
