Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating. In the past, injections, physical therapy or surgery were the only options for treatment. Today, we have a highly-successful advanced technology, called Intervertebral Disc Decompression (IDD) Therapy, that allows us to relieve neck or back pain in a new, non-surgical way. This treatment protocol was designed by a world renown neurosurgeon, Dr. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Shealy's protocol, utilizing the Accu-SPINA system, which delivers an exceptionally precise, computer-operated decompression program to reduce painful nerve pressure caused by bulging or herniated discs. The Accu-SPINA system has cutting-edge technology that leads the non-invasive, non-surgical, spinal decompression industry. Cleared through the FDA as a therapeutic device, Accu-SPINA has undergone stringent clinical trials and has published outcomes of up to 92% success in relief of painful symptoms. Using this technology, Dr. Shealy's protocol, and the Accu-SPINA decompression table, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc.
What does the treatment feel like?
During the treatment process, there are multiple cycles of stretch and relaxation of your spine specifically directed at the level of the bulge or herniation. In each cycle, you will feel a slow, gentle, pain-free stretch that reduces the disc compression against the spinal nerves. The stretch creates a vacuum-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. At the point of maximum stretch, there is an "oscillating effect" that is unique to the Accu-Spina device, enabling a "re-hydrating" or "re-vitalizing" effect, wherein, fluid, nutrients and oxygen are pulled into the disc from the surrounding tissues, improving the integrity of the disc itself. The final phase of each cycle is the relaxation phase. These gentle cycles are repeated multiple time during each 30-minute session.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about 30-minutes. Patient treatment plans do vary, but typically, patients are finished with treatment within eight weeks.
