Murfreesboro Chiropractor Announces Successes With Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

MURFREESBORO, TN--(Marketwire - Mar 11, 2012) - Murfreesboro chiropractic facility Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic has announced that their chiropractor has had success with non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. Murfreesboro spinal decompression can be of either the surgical or the non-surgical variety. According to Dr. Wesley Stewart at the clinic, non-surgical spinal decompression is a less invasive method of spinal rehabilitation that does not generally require a recovery period. Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic has had success using non-surgical spinal decompression for auto accident victims who suffer from issues such as whiplash, with patients who have back pain, and with patients who are experiencing neck pain.

When asked about the clinic's success using non-surgical spinal decompression as a patient therapy, Dr. Stewart commented, "We are very pleased with the high degree of success with non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. We have found that patients who were unable to get relief from any other type of medical care were able to realize huge benefits with this type of completely non-invasive therapy. This is an exciting development because it allows us to offer patients a solution that can give them permanent pain relief -- without invasive surgery or dangerous drugs."

The non-surgical spinal decompression therapy used at the Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic is designed for use in patients suffering from neck pain, lower back pain, upper back pain, and most types of pain arising from car accident injuries, sports injuries, or personal injuries. The spinal decompression therapy is an FDA approved procedure and is covered by many insurance companies today, according to the staff at the Rutherford Clinic of Chiropractic.

The therapy begins with securing patients onto the spinal decompression table using straps designed to hold their body in a specific position. This is followed by the application of low level suction force, then by a short relaxation period. The suction force is then repeated, a process which will continue for the duration of the decompression session.

During decompression, the spine is gradually elongated so that pressure on the spinal column is relieved, pinched nerves are set free, and injured back and neck discs are moved back into proper position. The traction created during the non-surgical spinal decompression allows the spine to return to the position that it was in prior to the injury or the accident.

Dr. Stewart and the staff at Rutherford Clinic say that this type of therapy may be used as a first option for patients who have been severely injured or have extreme pain issues, or it may be used after other types of chiropractic care or medical care have not been able to completely resolve pain issues. Dr. Stewart stated, "While decompression applies force and adjusts the spinal column in many of the same ways that traditional hands on chiropractics does, decompression has the ability to potentially resolve pain issues more rapidly since it may allow for more specific adjustments to the spinal column."
