KDT Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively treats disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches.
This therapy is shown to be effective to relieve the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.
At the age of about 28 years of age, the disc loses its’ vascular supply and, with injury, improper alignment or movement, can result is the disc drying out or desiccating. This is one of the main reasons that people can get shorter with age. The fluid can be drawn back into the disc by applying KDT Decompression to the area. The resultant movement of the disc and joint space will help to draw fluid back into the disc through a process called imbibition.
There are also bulged or herniated discs to consider. Creating a negative pressure in that disc space through KDT Decompression, it can draw the bulged or herniated portion back into the disc, thus relieving nerve pressure and pinching.
Decompression Therapy effectively improves the healing process and often provides quick, effective and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle.
Decompression Therapy is a very effective treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica and many failed back surgery cases.
This treatment helps many patients avoid risks associated with surgery including complications with anesthesia and the surgery itself. Failed back surgery numbers are dismal, at best, and every alternative treatment should be considered before subjecting your body to the surgical world.
Decompression Therapy typically begins with a series of sessions 3 times per week. Each session is approximately 10-23 minutes.
After treatment, your doctor can prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper stabilization of the injured or degenerative area for your long term comfort.
Decompression Therapy is administered to fully clothed patients that are either face down or face up on the table.
Clinical studies suggest Decompression Therapy provides a majority of qualified candidates with initial relief within just a few sessions.
