Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that not only takes pressure off of pinched nerves, but helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place.
NSSD utilizes a sophisticated method of cycling the patient through a series of slow pulls, holds, and releases. The super-smooth transitions between each phase of therapy can make for an experience so relaxing that many patients often fall asleep.
Over a series of treatment sessions, patients experience powerful pain reduction and healing. Some notice an improvement in their symptoms after the first few treatments! Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal causing nerve compression) have reported significant pain relief.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese medicine, but its practical principles and methods are easily understood:
Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body including the head, arm, hand, legs, feet, torso, and internal organs.
A subtle energy called CHI (pronounced chee) circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body, even the most remote cells.
Chi is the vital force, the presence of which separates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.
Any misdirection, blockage, or other derangement of the amount, flow, or balance of Chi may result in pain, dysfunction, and ill health
With acupuncture needles, or other means, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points (acupoints) along the course of the meridians. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Chi so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.
