Now in Grand Rapids, one doctor has what may be the most important breakthrough in non-surgical back pain treatments. Before-and-after MRI studies have shown disc bulges shrink in size – even with the most painful cases of L4-L5 herniations.
If you’ve had disc problems for years, recently injured your back, or if you’re suffering with sciatica, you must hear about these new studies.
Scientific studies tell us that spinal discs are responsible for most of the aches and pains people suffer from. Discs act like a cushion between our backbones and allow for a space at each level so the nerves can exit the spinal column.
When these discs get injured or wear out from bad posture, they begin to degenerate and cause pain. Bulging and herniations begin to form, pressing on the nerve roots. If the herniations occur at L4L5, they can severely compromise the large sciatic nerve, causing muscle weakness, tingling, and severe pain.
The most common invasive treatment for disc herniations is surgery. This costs quite a bit of money. Even with health insurance the patient is left with their own portion of the bill, in excess of $10,000, $15,000 and sometimes more. The recovery time and missed work can be anywhere from 3 to 6 months, not to mention the obvious severe risks associated with all surgery.
But here’s the biggest problem… there is a high failure rate of back surgery. One medical study found that, on average, 53% of L5-S1 back surgeries fail to produce relief of symptoms (International Orthop 1987.)
You should seriously consider a less invasive approach called spinal decompression.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a new technology that has been proven to reverse disc herniations. It creates a vacuum effect on the disc, which pulls the disc back into its normal position and brings in a fresh blood supply to promote healing.
Spinal decompression treatments are very gentle. In fact, every once and awhile I even catch a patient sleeping during sessions.
You’ll simply lie on your back, and then a specialized belt is gently placed around your waist. We’ll set the machine to focus on your problem area – then the advanced decompression computer system will do the rest. Most patients feel better with just a few treatments, and — best of all — there will be no dangerous drugs, no invasive procedures, and no painful exercises.
One clinical study has shown non-surgical spinal decompression to be extremely successful (good or excellent relief) in 86% of patients with herniated discs and degenerative joint disease – without the side effects.
Another study presented at the American Academy of Pain Management in 2007 showed:
“Patients reported a mean 88.9% improvement in back pain and better function…No patient required any invasive therapies (e.g. epidural injections, surgery).”
As you can see, spinal decompression has a high success rate helping disc herniations, sciatica, and back pain. In just a matter of weeks you could be back on the golf course, enjoying your love life, or traveling again.
With my “Decompression Evaluation” we’ll be able to find the problem and then correct it. Think of how you’ll feel in just a few short weeks. See and feel your life change for the better. Start your body on the way to pain-free, normal living. Feel tight joints rest, relax, free up. Feel muscles tied in knots become more supple. Feel strength in your muscles increase.
You’re able to live life as a normal person again, without back pain – able to play with your kids, enjoy time with friends, and finally get a good night’s rest.
