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, also referred to as non-surgical decompression therapy. Unlike spinal surgery, which comes with risks and often fails, spinal decompression is a safe and effective alternative.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal decompression works by utilizing a specialized table that can produce a negative pressure within the spinal disc. This negative pressure pulls nutrients into the disc to aid in healing and can facilitate the reduction in herniated disc material.
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 alleviate a patient’s chronic pain in the back, arm, neck or leg and heal the source of that pain.
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.
