The most common reason for missing work is the common cold. Second to that is back pain and that will do more than just keep you from your work. According to the American Spinal Decompression Association an estimated 75 to 85 percent of all Americans will experience some form of back pain during their lifetime. Can keep you from performing your most basic functions like sleeping well, sitting down to a meal or even bending over the sink to brush your teeth! If you suffer from back pain then you need to know your options. Most often your doctor will suggest surgery such as spinal fusion surgery, laminectomy, discectomy or intradiscal electrothermal treatment. Unfortunately, in addition to the known risks of surgery your doctor cannot guarantee that you will achieve an appreciable results. After a lengthy recovery you may still be in pain everyday. An alternative for surgery is non-surgical spinal decompression. A special table with an on board computer applies a traction like force to the discs of the spinal column to reduce intradiscal pressure. The computer safely controls the force and angle of movement so that the patient is comfortable and safe. Performance Health Medical Group offers spinal decompression in a series of treatments. In your first visit you will be examined and tests will be performed. The doctor will prescribe a treatment plan and go over it with you in detail. You will have time to ask questions and then you will schedule your appointments for your spinal decompression therapy.
