Most Important Treatment for Disc Problems | Chiropractor for Low Back Pain in Lubbock, TX
Hey, how’s it going? It’s Dr. Greg Marin here at 1-Spine Chiropractic. Today we’re gonna be talking about lower back pain.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Lower back pain and disc problems are the number one condition we treat here in the office. The number one cause of low back pain is typically spinal disc issues. Have you heard of a slipped, herniated or bulging disc? We have a machine here, the spinal decompression machine, that is great for that treatment. So with the spinal decompression, what this helps us do is treat this bulging, herniated or slipped disc. So what we do with the spinal decompression is we have the patient tied to the machine here, and the head is pointing. What’s happening is the disc in between the vertebra are then slowly separated and getting rehydrated. That’s called Inhibition.
How The Spinal Decompression Machine Works
What we do is use that mechanical traction to get most patients in this nice hammock position that’s very comfortable. Some patients do better when they’re on their tummy and that’s what allows us with these machines how to figure out what’s gonna be the best option for them. Laying on the back, are we going to get the best results for them? Typically the weight we pull is in between 80 pounds maximum 40 pounds minimum, but this table could pull up to about 200 pounds maximum. So depending on your case and your size, we’ve determined how much weight we need to pull and what’s going to be the best options for you. We have several machines here in our office in our clinic. So this machine typically lasts between 12 to 15 minutes.
