Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective, non-surgical relief from nagging neck or back pain
The LCD Spinal Care System is an alternative treatment designed to help relieve your nagging back, neck or referral (limb) pain such as sciatica. Clinical studies of the LCD Spinal Care System – referred to as non-surgical spinal decompression therapy – are reporting that more than 70 percent of patients show significant reduction of pain. Some report elimination of pain altogether. Thousands of people across the country are enjoying the benefits of LCD treatment. We’re eager to help you learn if you too are a candidate for this treatment method.
LCD Spinal Care System is a safe and effective treatment for pain without the risks associated with surgery, anesthesia, infection, injections or prescription medication. As you might imagine, the LCD Spinal Care System is rapidly gaining popularity due to its exceptional results in treating chronic back pain without surgery.
The LCD Spinal Care System uses sophisticated equipment. This method of treatment uses a therapeutic table that is connected to a computer to electronically distract and decompress your spinal structures. You rest on the table while a padded harness focuses the gentle, distractive force along your spinal column. This process decompresses your spine – specifically the intervertebral discs and joints and stretches your spinal muscles – the three structures that produce most of your pain.
The spinal decompression process
Prior to beginning treatments, we evaluate you to determine if you are a candidate. Your medical history, x-rays and CT / MRI scans are carefully reviewed. If you are a candidate for therapy, an individual treatment plan is created for your specific needs. A typical treatment plan is as few as 15 to 30 treatments. It is important to complete your treatment plan – and thus the full healing process – even if you start to feel improvement early on. It is not uncommon to experience a significant reduction in pain early in your treatments.
At the beginning of each session, you are fitted with a comfortable harness designed to offer optimal decompression. You are fully dressed and a specially trained technician will make sure you are properly positioned for comfort, safety and effectiveness. The computer is programmed in accordance with your specific treatment plan and your sessions commences. You are in complete control and can shut down the treatment at any time if discomfort should occur.
Our patients experience relief from:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Bulging and herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
Spinal decompression sessions
During each session, you experience multiple cycles of distraction / relaxation, which may take 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Each cycle is between 3 to 5 minutes. The equipment is designed to apply precisely-controlled tension along the axis of your spinal column, creating decompression of the intervertebral discs. The process is fully automated and administered by a computer which in turn is monitored by an attending technician.
During the distraction cycle, you may feel some pressure relief in the pain area. During this time, your body is responding by flooding the area with valuable oxygen, blood and nutrients which help promote your body’s natural healing process.
Your treatment sessions are both comfortable and relaxing. At the end of your session, you’re ready to head home! Most patients benefit and enjoy the LCD Spinal Care System!
