Do you suffer from degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging disc, sciatica, stenosis, or other spinal problems? Has your physician suggested you consider surgery?
We have a solution. Neuro Institute’s proprietary 3-STEP SPINAL DECOMPRESSION SOLUTION coupled with oxygen therapy and enhanced brain-based therapy first.
While other offices may offer spinal decompression as a stand alone treatment our protocols take non-surgical spinal decompression to another level. The results– nothing short of amazing. Our proprietary therapy approach offers painless treatment and accelerated results.
Spinal decompression therapy on its own has proven effective in treating degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, herniated discs and spinal stenosis. But when combined with a system of treatment that addresses the nervous system and core muscle strength, you have a winning combination. If you have already had surgery, spinal decompression therapy may still be considered if you suffer from failed back surgery syndrome. The therapy is simple altered to ensure post surgical safety.
Spinal discs do not get oxygen and fresh blood consistently.
Decompression and motion can enhance healing by restoring the needed nutrients back into the discs. During therapy, you will go through phases of distraction and relaxation. Once the problem spinal disc is isolated it can be placed under pressure which creates a vacuum effect. The vacuum does two things. First, any portion of the disc that has herniated or protruded can return to where it should be. Second, the vacuum effect brings in a fresh blood supply which can promote healing. We enhance this process by giving you oxygen during the spinal decompression session.
3 STEP DISC SOLUTION
- Warm up the disc with specific exercises
- Spinal Decompression with Oxygen Therapy
- Reconnect and Protect
Put all 3 steps together and you can gain long term benefits. Protect the back and/or neck by providing proper cerebellar control over the deep spinal muscles that control posture and synchronize timing between the brain and each muscle. *(The cerebellum is an area of the brain responsible for balance, coordinated movement and postural muscle tone). This loss of nervous system control is a big reason for disc failure in the first place.
Already had surgery?
It’s not too late to get help. There are times when surgery is needed but surgery has two BIG LIMITATIONS!
- It does nothing to correct the underlying reason the disc(s) failed in the first place.
- It can cause a condition known as “Adjacent Disc Failure”.
Here’s what happens…when one disc fails the disc above and below that disc are places under more stress and can begin to degenerate and fail too. Our focus is to correct the underlying biomechanical weaknesses so you can enjoy a strong, healthy back for a lifetime. We’ve worked with many patients post surgically. We understand how to safely apply therapy to ensure good outcomes.
People often jump at anything that promises them fast relief. Who doesn’t want relief from back pain or sciatica? It can be frightening to feel that much pain and wonder if you’re going to be able to work and take care of your family.
Doctors often jump from pain relief to strengthening using physical therapy without giving much thought to joint mechanics, neuromuscular control and lastly the disc itself. By jumping into Physical Therapy (exercises) and not working on the disc you are putting the “cart before the horse”. You are getting things out of order and setting yourself up for disappointment and future failure. I’ve seen it time and time again.
But there is a solution to this problem…
The disc is the most central tissue located between each of the spinal vertebrae. It needs to be worked on first along with spinal joint alignment and nerve control from the brain to the small muscles (rotators, multifidus and intertransversarii) that rest between the bones. These muscles act like small switches constantly giving the brain information about where joints and bones are in relationship to one another. Without addressing this vital communication link the brain will always be slightly blind as to position of the bones and discs. The result, loss of spinal control, chronic back/neck pain, disc degeneration and herniation and you being miserable.
All of these structures are closest to the center where the problem is located. Let’s call that the “CENTRAL ZONE”. Care must start here. Then, if you think of concentric circles moving outward our next area of focus should be addressing those “core muscles” that everyone hears about. The core muscle are in the intermediate zone (this is where physical therapy starts). Oops, we’ve skipped a step if we start working here, haven’t we? Lastly, the “big mover” muscles should be strengthen. These are your sit-up and bridging muscles called the outer zone.
Can you see the problem now? Physical therapy starts at the core muscle zone and completely forgets about the crucial central zone where the disc, joints and jumps to the other two zones.
Is it any wonder that 80% of adults in the United States end up having at least one major back pain event in their life? Don’t Don’t be one of them! Getting this right means everything to your long term success.
We combine the ATM-2® spinal rehab system as part of the unique protocol pioneered by Dr. Serpe. ATM-2 can bring pain relief and increased range of motion within minutes in some patients. And initial results can last for days. With regular training you can build a strong core that can hold-up to your daily activities.
Spinal decompression and enhanced brain-based therapy typically takes 30 minutes to perform. Patients usually have treatment three days a week for a minimum of four weeks. Most patients find pain relief within a few sessions. However, to achieve maximum and long-lasting relief, commitment to the entire recommended treatment program is necessary. For those who are candidates and follow the recommended guidelines, spinal decompression has proven to be highly effective.
Spinal decompression is safe, comfortable and effective for patients experiencing bulging, degenerated and/or herniated discs. We have been performing spinal decompression in Naperville since 2004. Our experience and cutting edge protocols have brought long lasting relief to hundreds in our community.
Before you opt for surgery, explore the possibility of spinal decompression therapy. Every person who is interested in spinal decompression therapy will be evaluated to see if he or she would make a good candidate. To schedule your initial evaluation and see if you are a candidate for this breakthrough procedure give us a call at 630-357-2299.
