Kennedy Neural-Flex Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Pain associated with spinal injuries, herniated disc, sciatica, and other back and neck conditions can be debilitating, with some conditions resulting in the recommendation for surgery. However, there is an alternative method available for those suffering from spinal injuries: spinal decompression.
Spinal Decompression releases the tension between the vertebrae of the spine with the assistance of a specially designed traction table, that allows the practitioner to manipulate small muscles between the spine, in a safely controlled environment.
What is Kennedy Neural-Flex Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical spinal compression works to release tension in the spine with the help of a traction table. The process involves the distraction and flexion of the spine where the practitioner makes subtle adjustments to the patient’s alignment, relieving pressure, pain, and improving blood flow to the area, allowing the body to heal itself.
This method of spinal decompression, as opposed to the more traditional traction method, moves the spine in a way that causes the muscles within the spine to flex without spasms, resulting in a treatment that effective but not painful. This spinal stretching increases the space between the vertebrae, and releases pressure on any spinal nerves that may be responsible for pain.
Spinal decompression is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as targeted exercise programs, hot and cold therapy, and muscle stimulation. A full spinal decompression treatment is taken over several visits, and sessions last anywhere from 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the severity of the condition.
What Conditions Does ItTreat?
Kennedy Neural-Flex Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is used to treat bulging, herniated and degenerative discs; sciatica; and other painful back and neck conditions.
For disc injuries, spinal decompression alleviates pressure in the space between disc to allow the practitioner to reposition the disc. This technique also promotes improved blood flow around the area, which allows for the proper transfer of nutrients to heal the affected area.
For sciatic relief, creating space between the vertebrae can relieve the pressure on the sciatic nerve, and ease pain in the back, buttocks, and legs.
