Non-Surgical-Spinal-Decompression-TherapyNon-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy for Lower Back Pain

Lordex Spinal Decompression Therapy is the latest in non-surgical decompression therapy available today. It was invented here in Houston 25 years ago and Dr. McKirahan was the first to introduce the Lordex Spinal Decompression Therapy in The Woodlands, Spring, Conroe and North Houston areas when he opened his second practice in The Woodlands over 14 years ago. The Lordex Spine Institute of Conroe is his fourth facility opened and you can tell by the name alone, we stand behind the Lordex Spine Decompression therapy program as well as all the equipment.

The Lordex Spinal Decompression Unit is part of a complete package of care given here at the Lordex Spine Institute of Conroe. The Lordex Spinal Decompression Unit provides a method of treatment that actually slows, stops  and reverses many lower back issues. It is 90% successful in keeping patients out from under the surgical knife. Dealing with lower back pain or pain in the lumbar region from a medical view is an ever evolving concern. We do know that no one wants to endure back surgery and some 50% of all back surgeries fail, requiring future operations. Of all lower back related pain issues, only about 1% actually require surgery. Today, using mechanical decompression proves to be a very effective, safe, non-surgical, non-evasive method to find relief from lower back pain, correct issues related to lower back pain and prevent experiencing back pain all together. We are confident you will learn all this for yourself.

Mechanical decompression actually separates the vertebrae and discs using zero gravity traction, allowing them to realign and seat properly, while increasing hydration and oxygenation into the discs to make them healthier. The probability of muscle spasms is reduced because the muscles aren’t over stretched, they are modified. The term we use is “muscle modification”, which means we are retraining the muscles to remember a new position. This eventually, within a few treatments, eliminates pressure/ pinched nerves and in many cases a positive result is felt and experienced in the first treatment. With these types of lower back pain, you can’t see it, you can’t touch it, but you sure can feel it. When you finally feel the relief, it is an unforgettable sensation.

As with any type of changes or healing of the body, time is an important factor, so the treatments on average are twenty, one-hour spinal decompression sessions combined with physical therapies, for the best results. While with the first few treatments, you may feel better, complete functional capacity is not achieved until the entire process between the spinal decompression treatments and your body have fully adjusted, healed and strengthened. However, each patient is different so we strive to prescribe a treatment period that is conducive to each unique situation.
