Resolving Back Pain Is Surgery The Only Option?


We live in a world where we are more active than ever before and with increased activity, we see an increase in injuries. It seems that the medical field, in general, is so quick to jump to two main solutions: surgery and/or medication. Pain, injuries, surgery and ultimately the use of pain medication are the leading causes of the epidemic we are currently experiencing: addiction to and overdosing on narcotics. This rising and very troubling trend is leading people to seek alternatives to surgery and medication.

Back pain is the third leading cause for hospital admissions and one of the most common reasons for missed work days. In addition, back pain can prevent people from living the lives they deserve and enjoying a healthy, active lifestyle. Many people who experience an injury or are in constant pain wonder if surgery is their only option for relief. In short, the answer is NO!

People who have NSSD can see an improvement in their pain
level after the first treatment.

One successful back pain treatment is called Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD). This non-invasive treatment is a type of motorized traction that gently stretches the spine, changing its force and position. The stretching results in reduced pressure on the spinal discs (gel-like cushions between the bones), by creating a vacuum that can move a bulging or herniated disc back into its original position. This negative pressure also pushes healing nutrients and restorative spinal fluids into the disc, reducing pain and opening the space occupied by the nerve, allowing the disc to heal. This treatment can be effective for a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Bulging/Herniated Discs
  • Degenerative Discs
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Worn Spinal Joints (Posterior Facet Syndrome)
  • Spondylosis
  • Foraminal Stenosis

The NSSD treatments may also be combined with electrical stimulation, ultrasound, or heat/cold therapy.

Surgery should never be the first option for treating back pain. Not only is it invasive, but prescription pain medication is a necessary part of surgery and recovery. NSSD is cutting-edge technology for treating back pain and conditions that cause pain. With a success rate of over 80 percent, the procedure requires no down-time and is medication-free. People who have NSSD can see an improvement in their pain level after the first treatment.

There is an alternative to medication and surgery for treatment and resolution of chronic back pain!
