When a spinal disc becomes damaged due to injury or disease, the pain involved can be debilitating. Disc decompression therapy can be extremely effective in relieving the pressure on one or many of the pinched, pain causing nerves.
While disc decompression therapy can be surgical in nature, Colorado Injury Center prefers to employ the non-invasive Lordex Spinal Decompression system alleviate pain and promote healing inside the damaged disc. Through a combination of x-rays, Digital Motion X-rays, and MRIs, we are able to pinpoint the exact issue and it’s cause and then provide pain relief to the patient.
The staple of our disc decompression therapy practice is the Lordex system, a computerized pain management tool that is safe, efficient, and comfortable. The process works as the patient lies on a table and the automated program slowly isolates the damaged disc and decompresses it. This takes a great amount of pressure off of the sensitive nerve endings and relieves pain. Simultaneously, a negative pressure system is created that forces nutrient rich blood to rush into the disc, causing it to heal. This program promotes long and short-term spinal health through paraspinal muscle strengthening.
The amount of time necessary to see results varies case to case, with some patients feeling an immediate difference, and others noticing lasting improvement after three to eight sessions. It is an extremely attractive, non-invasive alternative to facet injections and other surgical procedures. From arthritis to disc herniations, Lordex’s major strength is the ability to pinpoint and deal with trouble areas in the back.
When it comes to spinal health, it is always best not to leave anything to chance. Realizing this, our doctors at Colorado Injury Center prefer to rely on Lordex disc decompression therapy to treat patients. It has proven itself over and over again as a reliable and popular method of pain relief.
