Are you suffering with neck pain, low back pain and sciatica?
Do you experience numbness, tingling, or pain traveling down your arm or leg?
Is your pain is unbearable? You want more than anything to spend time with the ones you love, do the activities that bring you happiness, and just relax. But you just can’t.
These problems are not only annoying and uncomfortable; they greatly affect your quality of life and the lives of those who love you!
Sometimes all you need is a little pull in the right direction!
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries.
Spinal Decompression may help with the following painful conditions:
Degenerative Disc Disease
Chronic Neck and Low-Back Pain
Arm or leg pain
Alternative to back surgery
Dr. Katherine Afzal is very experienced in treating these problems through Spinal Decompression therapy.
So how does it work?
We use the SpineMED® device which features computer controlled biofeedback response to monitor the force of pull at a rate of 20 milliseconds. If your body begins to tighten, the force load will be reduced immediately to avoid muscle guarding. This allows for effective distraction of the spine to reduce intervertebral disc pressure and result in objective improvements of disc hydration, reduction of disc bulges, and reduced nerve impingement. The SpineMED® device features a pelvic tilt feature rotating the pelvis between 0-25 degrees during lumbar sessions and the 0-30 degrees for cervical sessions, providing specificity by isolating the damaged disc in a comfortable position.
