Spinal Decompression Treatment in Wayzata, MN

Back or neck surgery can be costly in more ways than one, considering there are several risks associated with these procedures. Luckily nowadays, there’s a much more effective treatment for spinal pain and injuries. Here at the Brost Clinic, we were the first in Minnesota to bring in the leading disc decompression therapy using DRX-9000 spinal decompression therapy. This spinal decompression system has been endorsed by numerous leading medical experts and has shown high degrees of success in treating even the most difficult and long-standing back conditions.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression has been used to treat various back and lumbar conditions, such as: 

  • Disc Herniations
  • Disc Degeneration
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Chronic Lower Back Pain
  • Chronic Neck Pain
  • Failed Back Surgery
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Sciatia
  • Ridiculer Arm Pain

Disc decompression works by using focused traction and a gently pumping action to the spinal discs, which causes a release of pressure to the nerves that cause lower back and neck pain. Decompression also allows fluids and nutrients to move in and out of the discs at a faster pace, thereby speeding up healing.

In a typical decompression treatment, the patient lays face-up on the decompression table. A comfortable bolster is placed under the knees, and support pillow under the neck to the patient’s comfort level. The computer begins a slow pull that gradually increases up to the pre-set treatment weight and targeted disc level. Most patients relax completely, and some even fall asleep during the treatment.

Post-Treatment and Care

After the session on the spinal decompression session, ice and electrical muscle stimulation or infrared laser are applied to the treated area.  A gentle adjustment with an activator instrument ensures proper spinal alignment. Acupuncture is also available at this point to provide further pain relief. The entire treatment session takes under one hour.

Exercise and rehabilitation programs can also be included later on, if needed. We can also offer important disc nutritional supplements, lower back support belts (if necessary) and a custom water bottle to encourage increased water intake. Patients enjoy their treatment sessions, and report significant pain relief following one to eight sessions. A total of 20 treatments are recommended for resolving conditions, given over a six-week period.
