Deciding to schedule surgery shouldn’t be taken lightly. There are times when surgery is the only answer, but sometimes, there are other non-surgicaloptions that can provide the same and sometimes even better results.
Chiropractic has been the foundation of non-surgical lower back pain for the past 50 years. Cox Technic spinal decompression is the new standard in the modern era for treatment that relieves acute and chronic back pain. Cox Technic involves using a special treatment table that can be adjusted to move the spine in a specific way. The patient lies face down on the table, and the chiropractor applies gentle pressure to the affected lower back area. This pressure stretches and decompresses the spine, which can help relieve pressure on the spinal discs and nerve roots.
Cox Technic can help treat various lower back conditions, including herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. The technique is gentle and non-invasive; most patients feel significant relief after just a few treatments.
Whether your pain is from an injury or degeneration (typical wear and tear), spinal decompression can relieve the pressure your spine puts on your spinal cord and nerves without surgery. Cox Technic and flexion-distraction therapy is another non-invasive and medication-free solution for spinal, neck, arm, and leg pain. It’s a gentle, controlled treatment for low back pain that normally takes 12 visits, and some find relief in just a visit or two! All of the above-mentioned treatments can be complementary or alternative solutions to surgery and patients with common issues like sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome can benefit from these treatments.
