Physicians, Chiropractors and Physical Therapist Agree on a New Treatment for Low Back Pain

New Treatment for Low Back Pain<br />
One of the most prevalent and difficult health conditions to treat in the physical medicine is low back pain. The difficulty in treating low back pain comes from the fact that there are numerous causes including herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative discs, muscle spasms, facet arthritis, and sciatica. While the vast majority of low back problems are relieved in a few days, there are still millions of Americans suffering with severe and chronic pain. The number of opinions on how to treat low back pain are as numerous as the physicians trying to help the patients, until recently. The last few years has brought about a revolution in the treatment of low back pain where all types of healthcare providers agree on the best treatment.

Neurologist, orthopedists, family doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists are now all in agreement over the best therapy for low back pain, IDD therapy. IDD therapy refers to Intervertebral Disc Decompression. Intervertebral Disc Decompression is quickly becoming the treatment of choice for healthcare givers of low back suffers. The over whelming acceptance of Intervertebral Disc Decompression as the treatment of choice for low back pain comes from the extremely high rate of success found by the FDA. The FDA studies released noted that Intervertebral Disc Decompression was successful in a full 86% of all low back cases, without the need for surgery, injections, medication or pain. The FDA studies included patients with herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, arthritis and stenosis with most patients have several overlapping problems as seen by MRIs. Many of the patients in the study had sciatica and muscle spasms and still Intervertebral Disc Decompression gave significant relief to over 86% of the patients.

MRI findings Starting Pain level Ending Pain level 1. 3 herniated discs 10/10 1/10 2. Degenerative discs with disc herniations L4-5 10/10 2/10 3. Spinal Stenosis with disc degeneration 9/10 1/10 4. Disc degeneration with facet syndrome (arthritis) 8/10 1/10 5. Bulging discs L4-5, L5-S1 8/10 1/10 6. Disc degeneration with stenosis 7/10 1/10

These are some of the many patients results that have been achieved through Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy at Monmouth Advanced Medicine in Freehold. These results are even more impressive when you consider that on average prior to trying Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy. our patients tried; chiropractic care 72%, traditional physical therapy 76%, had spinal epidurals 44%, medication 100%, and spinal surgery 12% . Even when traditional treatments failed, Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy offered dramatic relief.

Intervertebral Disc Decompression is so effective because it corrects the cause of the pain and not just the symptoms. A patient who receives Intervertebral Disc Decompression has a pair of harnesses placed around their waist and chest, a computer then generates a preset amount of decompression. The separation of the harnesses causes disc decompression and leads to negative pressure inside the disc, a vacuum is formed in the problem discs. The vacuum in the disc allows for the re absorption of herniated and bulging discs. The negative vacuum in a problem disc will also absorb water to help regenerate degenerative discs and help restore disc heights. Discs that have had the bulges, herniations, and degenerative changes reduced have more room for nerves, more room and movement for arthritic joints, have less spinal stenosis, and greatly reduced pain. Pre and Post MRI findings show that Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy will reduce the size of disc herniations and bulges. Degenerative discs and arthritic joint spaces will increase in size allowing for more movement and less nerve irritation. The long term results achieved with the therapy are impressive.

To improve the long term results of Intervertebral Disc Decompression patients are instructed on how to properly stretch and lift to prevent future occurrences. While undergoing Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy patients also receive traditional therapy to reduce pain, increase joint movement, and decrease muscle tightness. Patients who continue to do mild stretching and range of motion exercises daily have shown to have excellent long term results without exacerbations. The results achieved with Intervertebral Disc decompression therapy are unmatched and there are several additional benefits.

Intervertebral Disc Decompression has several other factors that have doctors and patients signing its praises. Intervertebral Disc Decompression is a form of physical therapy, so no medication, shots or invasive procedures are needed. An average patient will usually receive 24-32 Intervertebral Disc Decompression treatments with therapy over an 8 week period. A patient will start usually start to notice significant pain relief within the first 2-3 weeks. Patients are treated 3-4 times a week for 6-8 weeks without the loss of time from work or they are able to return to work faster than with traditional physical therapy. IDD therapy is totally painless so patients with even the most sever pain can receive treatment. The gentle and safe nature of the therapy has also made is useful for patients as young as 13 and as old as 90+. The high success rate and the quick results achieved with this therapy has also made insurance and Medicare reimbursement available. Patients praise the treatment for not just the pain relief the therapy offers, but for the return of more normal lifestyle.

Tom W., a school teacher stated," I began to experience intense excruciating pain in my low back often accompanied with burning, shooting nerve pains and constantly spasming muscles associated with sciatica. I sought immediate help at a hospital emergency room where a needle in my lower back was used to kill thee pain. The next four months consisted of many visits to my orthopedic doctor, a MRI, X-rays, 12 epidural blocks, prescription painkillers and 3 months of intense physical therapy, all to absolutely no avail???.Your Intervertebral Disc Decompression and physical therapy regiment has been a Godsend to me. The process was generally painless and often comfortable and relaxing for me. I sincerely never felt physically better?" Patients who complete Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy are often able to return to the activities that they thought they would never be able to do again.

Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy is even effective when traditional therapies and surgery has failed. A recent review of patients showed that Intervertebral Disc Decompression offered over a 95% reduction in pain even when surgery, physical therapy, chiropractic, medication, and spinal epidurals failed. The American Academy of Pain Management recommends the therapy for all low back pain suffers, except those patients with severe osteoporosis and metal spinal implants. The high success rate, fast results and minimal side effects makes Intervertebral Disc Decompression the first choice for doctors who specialize in treating low back problems.
