Lumbar Disc Decompression Therapy

Eight of every ten adults will experience low back pain at least once during their lifetimes. Unfortunately, most of us will experience multiple episodes of back pain ranging from a minor to a disabling injury.

Reducing pressure on the disc – known as decompression therapy – has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for both acute and chronic low back pain, disc injuries and reducing pressure on spinal nerves. Dr. Madosky and Dr. Waske are certified in decompression disc therapy.

Decompression disc therapy is frequently used in the treatment of:

  • Low back pain – acute and chronic
  • Disc injuries
  • Sciatica – pain into the leg/foot
  • Degenerative disc disease (the most common form of arthritis)
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Scoliosis
