Dr. Chris McNeil Chiropractor & Disc Specialist Opens Metro Detroit Decompression

Posted: Updated:

For people who suffer from low back pain caused by bulging or herniated discs, sciatica, pain or numbness in the arms or legs, and feel they are at the end of their rope, non-surgical spinal disc decompression may be the answer.

Detroit, MI, United States – March 25, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —

For those who remember the days when they didn’t suffer from back pain, could put in a full day’s work and not be in pain at the end of the day and actually sleep comfortably through the night with out having to wake up with back or leg pain. Or when they could take a bath, shower or get dressed without pain. “You don’t have to live with back pain and you may not need back surgery. Non-surgical spinal disc decompression may be the answer.” says Dr. Chris McNeil Chiropractor and Clinic Director for Metro Detroit Decompression Centers.

Spinal disc decompression is the latest scientific breakthrough for helping people with a spinal disc bulge or disc herniation, using state of the art technology. Disc decompression therapy is a form of physical medicine which combines the technology of traction with sophisticated software that gently separates the bones of the spine pulling the disc material back into its proper place.

When a disc injury occurs, either through a major trauma or over time through repetitive micro trauma, it can cause a number of different symptoms and impairments. The most common symptoms related to a disc injury are back pain, sciatica and numbness or weakness in the arms or legs. A disc injury commonly limits one’s ability to work, do house and yard work and enjoy recreational activities. It often interrupts sleep and limits or restricts patients from bathing, showering or even getting dressed.

A disc injury can be a progressive problem that gets worse over time and may become permanent and irreversible leading to spinal surgery. The cost for Spinal Decompression is a fraction of the total cost of spinal surgery. Spinal fusion or disc replacement surgery costs range from about $45,000 up to $180,000, which many insurance companies may not provide full coverage or any coverage at all. Another advantage of non-surgical Spinal Decompression is there’s no down time compared to the spinal surgery recovery period of 4 to 6 months. In addition, up to 50% of people who have spinal surgery often have no change in their condition or the pain comes back and they may have to undergo 1 or more additional surgeries.

There are numerous treatments and therapies people often try before undergoing spinal surgery but are often unsuccessful.“In my experience the majority of people seeking non-surgical disc decompression have usually tried it all: pain medication, physical therapy, chiropractic care, injections and maybe even surgery. Many patients have already spent a lot of money or had other opinions and they are upset because they’ve done all that and they’re still in pain,” said Dr. McNeil.

Statistics reveal that spinal decompression treatment is highly effective for long term pain relief. Recent studies have shown that as many as 92% of the patients who qualify for spinal decompression therapy achieve satisfactory results, and 86% of the patients who completed the therapy reported total resolution of symptoms. “Decompression treatment takes the pressure of the damaged discs off the spinal cord, spinal nerves and other tissues to provide pain relief. This treatment allows the patients bulging disc to return back to its original size without having surgery. Additional therapy done with decompression helps spinal vertebrae to remain in a normal position,” says Dr. McNeil.

At Metro Detroit Decompression Centers combining disc decompression with other therapies aims to speed up the healing process, stabilize the injured disc and strengthens the core muscles of the body and may include: heat therapy, ice therapy, percussive massage, chiropractic adjustments, modified vibration therapy, therapeutic laser therapy, electrical stimulation and exercises. “We tailor the program to fit your exact condition, and most importantly, we only work on the structures that will have a direct response on the affected area of the spine,” says Dr. McNeil.

At Metro Detroit Decompression Centers the doctors are Kennedy Certified Disc Decompression Practitioners utilizing the Kennedy Neural-Flex Decompression System for the non-surgical treatment of spinal disc injuries and herniations. As a result their success rate is recognized as some of the highest in the industry. To determine if spinal decompression can help, call to schedule a consultation with one of their certified decompression doctors and they’ll review the history and MRI or CT results. If a person’s a candidate they can try the treatment at no charge, and the doctor can determine how long it could take to fix the disc or bring it as near normal as possible.
