Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical treatment that uses specific belting, table angles and computerized settings to positively decompress the lumbar or cervical spine. The decompression allows the liquid center of your discs to “centralize” (meaning to go back to its normal position). Once the disc centralizes, the outer fibers that give the disc its strength and integrity, can heal properly and again properly contain the fluid – giving you relief.
Disc herniations, excursions, protrusions, slipped discs and bulging discs, all can occur when the disc liquid is not centralized. Instead of treating these conditions with steroid injections, pain killers, muscle relaxers, anti inflammatory and/or surgery, Gordon Chiropractic uses the Kennedy Neural-Flex Decompression Table or KDT to treat the condition.
This new and advanced technology is the first decompression system that adds the capability of advanced treatment of disc problems such as disc herniations and disc bulges, as well as nerve and foraminal encroachment syndrome, in addition to patients suffering with spinal stenosis. This decompression table is the only table available that allows patients to be comfortably and effectively treated in the prone – belly down – or supine – belly up – position. Only the KDT Neural-Flex Technology maintains a true axial pull vector while allowing the patients lower body to be dropped into a deep flexion for added relief. It all adds up to you being pain free and back on your feet.
