The Lordex Procedure for spinal decompression therapy is the safe, painless, non-surgical choice for the treatment of the most common causes of low back pain, including:
- Herniated Disc
- Degenerative Disc
- Facet Syndrome
- Disuse Atrophy
- Failed Back Surgery
Dr. Therkelsen at ChiroPlus Wellness Center uses the Lordex Lumbar Decompression as an advanced non-surgical system for treating disabling low back pain. Computer-guided equipment unloads the spine and creates a negative pressure, or vacuum, within a herniated/bulging disc, drawing the disc off pain sensitive nerves and the spinal cord.
Clinical results indicate 86% or more of people suffering from the common causes of low back pain gain relief with the application of non-surgical disc decompression (Shealy CN, LeRoy P. New Concepts in back pain management decompression reduction and stabilization. Weiner R, ed. Pain Management: A Practical Guide for Clinicians. Boca Raton, Fla., St. Lucie press; 1998: 239-257). The procedure takes place during a series of 20 to 30 half-hour treatments over the course of 10 to 12 weeks.
