The NEW Treatment for Your Low Back Pain... Spinal Decompression Therapy
Pain Center at St. Joseph's Campus offers residents of Parkersburg, West Virginia the latest cutting edge technology in the non-surgical treatment of serious lower back pain and sciatica. Our commitment to offering the highest quality of care resulted in the addition of the FDA cleared Spinal Decompression technology for the treatment of back pain due to:
Sciatica (leg pain)
Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
In the past, a patient suffering from disc problems was usually given pain medications, instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for physical therapy, and when they weren't progressing they were sent for spinal surgery. Conservative chiropractic care proved very helpful in many cases, yet there have been some cases when surgery seemed to be the only other option... until now.
Today, you don't have to live with that pain anymore. Thanks to the concerted efforts of a team of top physicians and medical engineers, Spinal Decompression Therapy was developed to effectively treat lower back pain and sciatica resulting from herniated or degenerated discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy not only significantly reduces back pain in many patients, but also enables the majority of patients to return to more active lifestyles.
How Does It Work?
Spinal Decompression uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica. Like a shock absorber for a car, the disc is the shock absorber for the spine. When too much pressure is placed on the disc, it bulges or herniates. Think of it like a jelly doughnut ... squeeze it too hard and the jelly comes out. This is called a Herniated Disc. (Slipped Disc, Bulging Disc) Also as we age or when we are injured discs can begin to dry out and degenerate causing nerves to be pinched and bone spurs to form. This is called Degenerative Disc Disease.
While lying comfortably on the spinal decompression table, gentle specialized traction forces are logrhythmically applied until decompression is achieved. This process creates up to 100 mm of negative intra-discal pressure, retracting (sucking in) the disc herniation and allowing the damaged disc to heal. Spinal Decompression also helps to repair, re-hydrate and regenerate degenerating discs by drawing in nutrients, minerals and water and by improving circulation to the discs.

How do I Know if I Qualify for Care?
During the complimentary consultation the doctor will ask you questions about your condition such as "Where does it hurt? What makes the pain better? What makes it worse? How bad is it and what else have you tried that hasn't worked." Then the doctor will perform a thorough examination and review any x-rays or MRI reports. At this point the Doctor will determine if you are a candidate for our program. If you don't qualify for the program we can refer you to someone who may be better able to help.
If you are accepted into the program the doctor will make his recommendations on which therapies will help your condition the most and how frequently you will need to come. Most patients will respond to care between 7 to 15 treatments. Some patients may need less, some may need more. Call us today to see if you qualify!
