Rockville and Gaithersburg Now Has Spinal Decompression Therapy

New protocol for neck and low back pain is now available in Rockville and Gaithersburg, Maryland. This protocol is especially helpful for disc and nerve problems. Patients sometimes even fall asleep during their treatment.

(PRWEB) December 17, 2009 -- Back pain sufferers from all over Maryland can now rejoice as The Spinal Correction & Wellness Center has a machine and protocol to help save and improve degenerated discs.

Humans are constantly under pressure from gravitational forces which squash the delicately soft discs which interject our spines. Over time, the discs can rub and chafe against nerves, leading to severe discomfort. Medication only masks the underlying problem.

Dr. Steve Wander, the treatment director of the company said, “We now offer our patients a sophisticated machine which gently undoes the forces which are against spinal tissue.” He went on to suggest, “Our main objective has been to stop compression of the spine and the machine has blown away our expectations.”

Spinal Decompression Therapy, as with many chiropractic treatments, always has skeptics ready and waiting to pounce. However, in an independent study, Dr Thomas A. Gionis had 219 patients treated and had a 92% success rate.

Another patient who participated in the experiment said, “My back had been causing me pain for years, I have tried all of the medicines and acupuncture. Nothing has been more helpful than spinal decompression therapy.” Go to for more information on this technique.

Many sufferers of back pain notice neck and shoulder pain also. Headaches can be a common occurrence too. Once the spine has been gently pulled away from the nerves, which have vital communications to and from the brain, the body is able to restore its natural balance again.

Their spinal decompression machine uses the Pettibon system, which is a table with straps for the feet and gently tilts to stretch the vertebrae causing pain. This stretching, with pauses in between, helps the spine's mobility and increases the normal function of the facet joints. Discs, which are soft and pulpy matter that connect the bones of the spine together, are restored back to their normal size.

It is not only Gaithersburg and Rockville which offer this machine, all over Maryland the clinics are supplying them. Rockville, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Germantown and Potomac are all highly equipped and ready with fully licensed chiropractors and massage therapists.

One such therapist, Lisa Holland, from the Rockville clinic said, “It's fantastic to work here and see the development of patients who come through the door.” She added, “They come in limping and all stiff, and leave being more supple and invigorated.”

Spinal decompression therapy is known to help not only lower back pain, but also sciatica, disc herniations and cervical neck problems. This drug free and natural way of treating adults and children is becoming more accepted by the majority, especially with the previous results.

Gravity may be all around us and cannot be stopped, but its effects can be reversed with a little time and some spinal decompression therapy. The Spinal Correction & Wellness Center offers its patients a natural approach to wellness.

Another happy patient, from Gaithersburg said, “I feel free again, I have more mobility now than I did 20 years ago”. Call 301-770-1818 to see if you are a candidate or log on to
