Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we utilize an intersegmental traction table that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery.
With this traction table, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that manipulates the spine and provides for proper alignment. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition. Patients usually complete treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within a matter of weeks.
If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a treatment plan that corresponds with your body. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that just cover up the problem, ask us if our intersegemental traction table can help you!
