There’s more to back pain then what you feel. Most of the time, doctors prescribe drugs and injections to drown out the pain. Despite all that, the back pain keeps reoccurring and all these treatments do is mask the pain. By covering up the pain it eventually pushes you towards a more invasive procedure when the pain gets too bad and these treatments no longer give you any relief. However, what goes on inside is a much more serious issue that needs immediate resolution.
Back pain treatments have been largely ineffective for quite some time until Dr. Alan Dyer extensively researched an alternative (and less costly) means of treating lower back pain. Dr. Dyer and his team were able to develop a device called the Vertebral Axial Decompression system, a noninvasive procedure that treats back pain. To put it simply, this device works by lifting gravitational pressure off your spine and discs. The negative pressure returns herniated material back into the disc and nourishes the disc for re-hydration and regeneration. Nerves near the affected area are relieved from pressure, resulting in pain relief.
Before, this was a problem since patients were asked to visit Dr. Dyer’s clinic in order to get this type of the treatment. Now, spinal decompression devices are available at clinics like the Arizona Back Institute which make it much more available to those suffering around the world.
These decompression devices have been proven to treat primary medical conditions like back pain, neck pain, arm pain, sciatica, herniated and/or bulging discs (may be single or multiple), degenerative disc disease, relapse or failure of treatment post surgery and facet syndrome.
So, how is Vertebral Axial Decompression different than traction? Both have similar mechanism of action which is to ‘pull’. However, Spinal Decompression devices are more focused on pulling on the spinal discs (bones) and allowing fluid exchange inside the disc rather than on the muscles and the spine all together setting off spasms. This is achieved through a patented computer system that gently overcomes the normal guarding reflexes associated with stretching a muscle or an area in spasm. This mechanism bypasses the muscle response to overcome guarding and allows a therapeutic negative pressure to be created in the disc, allowing an influx of nutrients and fluid.
The Arizona Back Institute has helped pioneer the use of Vertebral Axial Decompression devices and has been offering this treatment now for over 10 years. Now, with this technological advancement at hand, patients can lead a new life worry-free and pain-free.
