Non Surgical Disc Treatment For Spinal Pain

Manual Decompression Adjustment for Low Back Pain at ANH-Wellness Center: A Creating Wellness Center in Oakbrook, IL


          "Supported By Federal Grant Research"

Non-Surgical Treatment for: Sciatica, Herniated Disc, Degenerated Disc, Low Back Pain.

Technique for repair of herniated, ruptured or bulging discs. Successful at preventing unwanted surgery as well as patients with failed back surgery and lumbar facet syndrome.


Goals of the flexion-decompression treatment include transfer of metabolites into the spinal disc, decreasing intradiscal pressures and decompressing inflamed/compressed spinal nerve roots. Three government-funded grants totaling over $2 million dollars have been awarded for the study of this technique.



Scientific Findings Regarding Disc Decompression
1. The disc space increases in height relieving irritation of the spinal nerve.
2. Decreases disc protrusion and reduces stenosis. 
3. Tensions the ligaments to reduce stenosis.
4. Opens the vertebral canal by 2 mm. (16%).
5. Increases metabolite transport into the disc.
6. Opens the posterior facet joints and reduces posterior disc stress.
7. Intradiscal pressure drops under distraction. 
8. Intervertebral foraminal openings enlarge giving patency to the nerve.
