The town of Orlando recently became home to the first Spinal Aid Center in Orange County. The Spinal Aid Center offers a relatively new technology called non-surgical spinal decompression - a treatment that offers new hope to sufferers of severe, chronic back pain.

Dr. David Nahali of the new Spinal Aid Center, says he opened the facility because so many of his patients came to him complaining of chronic back pain caused by, disc bulging, disc herniation, facet arthorosis, failed back syndrome, stenosis and sciatica. They were convinced that pills and surgery were their only option to relieve their pain.

Gary Claxton, Vice President of the Henry J. Kaiser Foundation, which monitors health care spending says, "The rising costs and the growth in the number of back surgeries is a good example of why healthcare expenditures are more than double inflation.” Dr. Doug Burton, surgeon and senior spine research professor at the University of Kansas Medical Center says, "There is a major shift to Spinal-fusion procedures that use expensive mechanical devices to help fuse diseased vertebra together. However," Dr. Burton added, "it's an uncertain outcome.” He further stated that these procedures are "expensive and have not resulted in significantly better outcomes" and he limits the procedure himself.

Until now, most physicians have been left with only the prescription for medications, invasive procedures known as neuromodulation and neuroablation or surgery. Unfortunately, a lot of chronic back pain patients end up addicted to narcotic pain meds. The scientific discovery known as Non-surgical spinal decompression is a medical breakthrough in the non-drug, non-surgical approach to chronic back pain that works according to the American Journal of Pain Management. They reported an 86 percent success rate in patients suffering from herniated discs after receiving non-surgical spinal decompression.

In many cases of back pain, bulging or herniated disc material is often the culprit. The bulging material puts pressure on the nerves and creates pain that can travel into the buttocks and even down the legs. Non-surgical decompression relieves pain by stretching the spine, effectively creating a vacuum (negative pressure) that draws the bulging and herniated disc material back into place. As the pressure inside the disc decreases, so does the pain. Even more important, the patient can be considered "cured" and should not have to return.

Unlike surgery, there is no recovery period for non-surgical spinal decompression. Patients may go home or return to a non-strenuous activities after their treatment. The cost is less than one-tenth the cost of back surgery, and many insurance companies cover portions of the treatment.
