Louisville Spinal Decompression Therapy
These are pre and post MRI's of a patient that has been treated with Non Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy. This is a fairly new therapy, first invented by a orthopedic surgen.It's been in the US for approximately 8 to 10 years. The best way to describe this therapy is that it puts the disc in the low back in an enviroment that they can heal. What causes a disc to bulge or herniated is that the outer rings of cartilage in the disc have been weakens. Now the discs in your low back are under a positive pressure constantly. This in turn will cause the disc material will be pushed toward the weak area and eventually putting pressure on the spinal nerves. So removing this pressure would be the most obvious answer right. Well that is exactly what decompression therapy does and that allows the disc to heal properly. To add more great news there is no down time, no needles and most important no risky side effects.
Now not every person is a canidate for this type of treatment. If you would like the opportunity to see if you are a canidate please call my office Westport Chiropractic here in Louisville at 502-326-5000 and make an appointment and I will evaluate your condition and let you know.

Take a minute and read the patients story
My name is Anne E. I suffered from extreme low back pain for a long time and I tried everything out there surgery was my last option. It was so bad that I thought I was might have to sell my car because I couldn’t push the clutch to the floor. I requested information on non surgical decompression. I met with Dr. Wheeler to see if I was a candidate for this procedure. After reviewing my MRI I was given the go ahead and the results were and still are outstanding. The pain that went down my leg is now gone. I’m back to full function from work to play. This has been the best thing I’ve done for myself. This procedure was Priceless.
Thanks Again Anne E
