Does spinal decompression work? Are the results of spinal decompression therapy for herniated discs long lasting? Dr. Larry VanSuch, a Northland Area Chiropractor here in Columbus, Ohio explains in the following video:
The answer to this question is yes, spinal decompression therapy does work and there’s a very high index of satisfaction that patients have even long after treatment has ended.
Most people remain asymptomatic indefinitely just so long as they don’t reinjure themselves with any slip and fall accidents, etc. after receiving treatment.
There are cases however, that may require an occasional session or two every month to keep the contents of the disk back in its proper place to prevent symptoms from returning. This most likely is for the more complicated cases where the herniation is very severe, or, where there are multiple disc herniations (protrusions or extrusions) in the neck or lower back.
But the majority of time patients who have been in to see us have called us back months later stating they’re still pain free and are doing very well after undergoing their initial round of treatments.
So, spinal decompression therapy does work. Call our office today in the Northland area of Columbus, Ohio to see if you are a candidate for this remarkable form of treatment.
