Spinal Decompression in Colorado Springs – What’s Hype and What is Not?
Posted Aug 19 2012 10:03pm
In Colorado Springs Spinal Decompression is featured on the front page of many publications and even ocassionally on tv. So what is hype and what is true. Spinal Decompression therapy is the idea that by elongated the spine, space can be created between the vertebra of the spine, and thereby “decompressing” the disc. This relief, gives the disc an opportunity to move back into place, if it is currently being squeezed to one side or the other. This part is true. Using our specific protocol, not offered in other locations in Colorado Springs, we see fantastic results for patients suffering from a herniated disc (also called a bulging disc or hot disc), Sciatica, Spinal Stenosis, and pain shooting down the legs or arms. Where the hype comes in is in the machinery. Righ now, the most advertised machinary on the market is not necessarily the best, but it sure looks fancy featuring a built in DVD/CD player and tv. The machine is the DRX9000. It’s hard to miss. It looks like a 1965 computer. After six months of research, we decided on the highly versatile Kennedy Decompression Table, but we also chose to compliment the decompression with two other key services to align the spine, decrease inflammation, and promote healing of the often dehydrated and cracked disc. The Kennedy Decompression Table allows for 20 different positions and perform cervical and lumbar (neck and low back) spinal decompression therapy, while the DRX9000 is a flat bench that moves back and forth.
