Pain Is Under Control: Rehabilitate the Structures Supporting the Disc. Most patients feel significant pain reduction in as few as five Decompression Therapy treatments. That however does not mean the healing process is complete, or that your pain won't return.
During Phase II of your Decompression Therapy treatments, our office will prescribe a series of rehabilitative measures in order to more fully heal your discs, and keep the pain from returning. Most low back pain suffers have two compounding problems that have contributed to their disc injury and limited their natural healing abilities.
• Decreased Spine Flexibility
• Poor Muscle Control
A program of focused rehabilitative exercise may begin during or after your Decompression Therapy course of treatment. Our rehabilitation program involves several clinically effective yet simple, pain-free activities. Strengthening the muscles that support the spine and regaining endurance in them, is also vital for spinal health.
All the body systems must work in concert for optimum health so nutritional and lifestyle advice may be given as well as an at-home exercise program. We can't over emphasize the importance of the at-home exercises. What you do at home is integral to the overall success we have. Studies show consistent stabilization and endurance exercises control back pain and reduce injury. At what point you start the exercise program is a function of your pain and overall progress based on our findings.
