Today’s advances in spinal traction have brought promising results for patients with disc herniation and degenerative disc disease. Non-surgical disc decompression is one such treatment being advertised increasingly, that has brought initial relief for many with debilitating back pain. It’s important to know that poor spinal function and alignment are critical factors in WHY discs wear out or bulge. We use disc decompression with very few patients, because we work on resolving WHY the disc failed and provide an environment so that the disc has a chance to migrate forwards, away from the spinal cord and nerves. We see the disc as the VICTIM, not the problem. That said, we have saved many patients from surgery by helping the disc as well with Disc Decompression. There are many effective types of Disc Decompression. We have chosen the Pettibon SRT Decompression table.
The Pettibon System of Chiropractic Spinal Rejuvenation goes beyond simple decompression with the Spinal Rejuvenation Table (SRT) utilizing Whole Body Vibration (WBV). With higher contractility of the muscles occurring with WBV, muscles fatigue occurs 50% faster allowing spasm and splinted muscles to relax, enabling quicker decompression of the compressed disc and greater pain relief. This essentially reduces the decompression time from the standard 30 minutes of traditional methods, to 15 minutes or less with the use of WBV.
The Pettibon System of Chiropractic Spinal Correction in conjunction with the Pettibon Spinal Rejuvenation Table (SRT), utilizing Whole Body Vibration and decompression, is one of the only systems proven, with evidence based research, to achieve predictable disc re-hydration, structural correction, with neurological and physiological restoration of health and function.
