Herniated/Bulging Disc Information Yorkville
Thousands of patients that would have had to endure surgery have opted for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.
Spinal decompression is a treatment designed to treat disc injuries in the neck and in the low back. Our treatments are safe and utilize only FDA approved equipment. The decompression portion of these sessions last around 22 - 29 minutes each, helping to pull the spine into its natural state, to relieve painful pressure on nerves, and helping discs return to their normal positions.
Spinal Decompression reduces or eliminates painful pressure on nerves, including pinched nerves. It also allows fluids to fully hydrate the discs in your spine, carrying blood and essential nutrient-rich fluids needed to heal and remain healthy. Similar to the fluids, the treatment also allows an increased blood flow, carrying a greater amount of oxygen to your spine.
Most patients notice relief or a complete lack of pain within the first treatment; however, spinal decompression is not a cure-all with the first treatment. Rather, it is designed to be completed as a series of treatments, most often with the patient following a set schedule of exercises in the office and at home as prescribed by Dr. Berkey and Dr. Mali. Without your active participation during and after therapy sessions, you will not be capitalizing on the full healing opportunities spinal decompression therapy offers.
Does Spinal Decompression really work?
Spinal Decompression has been proven effective in relieving the pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and even relapse or failed back surgery. Since its release, clinical studies have revealed an amazing success rate in treating lumbar disc related problems with Spinal Decompression. In the Journal of Medicine personal preview issue September 2008 , John Leslie, MD, anesthesiologist, released a study performed by the Mayo clinic indicating an 88.9% success rate in treating disc herniations with the DRX9000. The DRX9000 is the same machine that Dr. Berkey and Dr. Malik use in their office for non-surgical spinal decompression.
