Lordex Spine Decompression System Procedure for Lower Back Pain Treatment
Our professional chiropractic mission is to help you experience the greatest benefits possible as a lower back or leg pain patient. Most of our lower back pain patients require anywhere from 20-30 procedure sessions to decompress affected nerves while regaining functional capacity and restoring spinal motion dynamics. Most patients can reach optimum spinal function around 25 procedures.
For most patients, each hour long visit, we follow a standard protocol. We kindly ask that you arrive 10 minutes early for your appointment to complete a visual pain analog and prepare for your Lordex Spinal Decompression treatment procedure. We suggest you dress comfortably, most patients prefer warm up or exercise clothes to change into prior to beginning treatment.
Before starting treatment on either the Lordex Spinal Decompression Unit, Lordex Axial Inversion Decompression Unit or the Lordex Strength Restoration Machine, you will be asked to please remove any objects from your person and to visit the lavatory. Dr. McKirahan or a physical therapist will determine for each visit on which machine you will begin the Lordex Spinal Decompression treatment procedure. It may be appropriate on each visit to use the Lordex Strength Restoration Machine first, while for other visits, one of the Lordex Decompression Units. Unless otherwise prescribed, the Lordex Spinal Decompression Unit procedure is 30 cycles of approximately 30 minutes of decompression.
We encourage you to bring your favorite CD to enjoy listening too, while relaxing on either of the Lordex Decompression Units for your treatment. You may also choose a CD from our audio library. During each procedure, you will be fitted with a chest vest and pelvic harness. While you are comfortably positioned on your back, a knee wedge will support your legs and a small lordotic bladder will support your lumbar region.
The Lordex Spinal Decompression table slowly and gently separates, relieving you of the pressures that pinch the nerves. This process allows for vital circulation to be restored to the damaged, painful areas of the lower back, while stimulating your body’s natural healing process.
After you complete the 30 cycles of decompression, you will begin your strength restoration therapy on the Lordex Strength Restoration Machine which will re-stabilize your spine. Next to your leg muscles, your lower back muscles (erector spinae) are the largest muscle group in your body. Without the strength and support of these muscles, the low back becomes weak and unstable. The Lordex Strength Restoration Machine is designed to effectively make your back strong and stable.
Each Lordex Strength Restoration Machine procedure consists of;
The 60-80 flexion / extension repetitions introduce a kinetic activity that produces strength gain and stabilization. The final procedure following the Lordex Spinal Decompression Unit and Lordex Strength Restoration Machine is the Lordex Stretch and Flex program.
This involves passive stretching in a treatment suite performed by a Lordex therapist. The goal of the Lordex Stretch / Flex program is to improve our patient's overall range of motion and flexibility. Each of our patients will undergo approximately 25, one-hour sessions to advance from a state of dysfunction to restored functional capacity. Our doctors, therapists and staff are committed to improving your quality of life. Your health and general well-being are our first priority. Call our office today and learn more!
