Chiropractor Springfield, VA - Dr. Todd P. Sullivan Announces The Addition of Spinal Decompression Therapy

New Therapy Offers Hope for Herniated Disc Sufferers

(PRWEB) March 15, 2010 -- NOVA Chiropractic & Wellness Center is now offering Kennedy Spinal Decompression Therapy to Springfield area residents suffering from disc herniations. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a new “state of the art” therapy for lower back and neck pain sufferers.

Spinal Decompression Therapy has been clinically proven for pain associated with herniated or bulging discs even after failed surgery. It is a non-surgical, computerized traction therapy for the relief of back and leg pain or neck and arm pain.

During the procedure, by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, a spinal disc can be isolated and placed under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it. The vacuum effect allows the disc component- that has protruded or herniated outside the normal confines of the disc - to be pulled back within the disc.

Dr. Todd P. Sullivan, president of NOVA Chiropractic & Wellness Center said, “The most exciting aspect about Kennedy Spinal Decompression Therapy are the clinical studies that document its efficacy. One study reported the reduction of disc herniations – up to 90% documented by MRI – in the majority of cases and another study reported that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ results after spinal decompression therapy.”

Dr. Sullivan also stressed the difference between regular traction and Spinal Decompression Therapy. “The Kennedy computer is the key. It controls the variations in the traction pull allowing for spinal decompression that eliminates muscle guarding that is typical in conventional traction devices. The preprogrammed patterns for ramping up and down the amount of axial distraction allows for higher levels of spinal decompression and disc rehydration.”

Dr. Sullivan added, “We chose the Kennedy Spinal Decompression system after a significant amount of research. With its unparalleled design and proven history, the Kennedy system is the ‘gold standard’ in decompressive therapy. We also selected this system because it can treat discs in both the neck and the low back.”

For more information regarding this highly effective, state of the art, non-surgical treatment for neck and low back disc herniations, spinal stenosis, sciatica and failed surgery, go to Spinal Decompression in Springfield, VA or call (703) 912-7822.
