Spinal Decompression Therapy in South Austin
If you’ve been putting up with disc herniation, disc degeneration or failed back surgery syndrome, we can help. At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we’re offering spinal decompression in Austin, a treatment also referred to as non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. Unlike spinal surgery, which comes with risks and often fails, spinal decompression treatment is a safe and effective alternative.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal decompression works by having a patient lay on a specialized traction table designed to reverse spinal compression. By producing a negative pressure within the spinal disc, disc decompression therapy pulls nutrients into the disc to aid in healing and can facilitate the reduction in herniated disc material. Here’s how it works: We attach you to the table and move you through a variety of positions, effectively counteracting compression so discs can move back into place.
This process creates an environment where the disc can receive more nutrients and heal itself faster and more effectively. The main objective of spinal decompression therapy is to reverse compression and alleviate a patient’s chronic pain in the back, arm, neck or leg and heal the source of that pain. It can offer tremendous results for pain, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis and other related conditions. Watch the videos below to learn more about how posterior lumbar decompression and cervical decompression therapy work.
Low-Force, Smooth Decompression
HealthFirst uses the Hill DT table, which employs sophisticated load sensor technology to continually measure and check the treatment force and patient-resistance of each treatment.
At a rate of more than 10,000 pulses per millimeter, the Hill DT senses a patient’s approaching threshold and decreases the pull. What this means is the Hill DT offers low-force, smooth decompression in an entirely different class from cable-based spinal decompression systems.
Dr. Brad’s Certification
Dr. Brad is certified in spinal decompression. He earned a Certificate of Proficiency in Non-Surgical Axial Spinal Decompression from Hill DT Solutions, LLC.
