What is Neuro-Oxygen Spinal Decompression Treatment?

Benefits

Neuro-oxygen decompression treatment is an alternative to surgery that is used to treat pain in the back, neck and arms caused by a variety of conditions, such as degenerative, herniated and bulging discs and spinal stenosis.

Function

Neuro-oxygen decompression treatment is effective for use on the spine and neck because it alleviates pressure that can accumulate from injury or disease. The decompression equipment slowly creates space between the discs in the spine, which creates a vacuum that also allows oxygen to reach the injured tissue in the back, which speeds up healing.

Time Frame

The normal course of neuro-oxygen decompression treatment is 20 to 25 sessions. Each session lasts about 30 minutes.

Expert Insight

Groteke E Gionis, a clinical scientist, published the findings of a trial that showed neuro-oxygen decompression treatment showed immediate improvement in 86 percent of patients. In the same study, 84 percent of patients remained symptom-free three months after the completion of the study.

Warnings

Neuro-oxygen decompression can cause a number of side effects, including stiffness, and can also create problems in patients with other conditions, including osteoporosis and spinal fusions. Decompression cannot be used in pregnant women. Neuro-oxygen decompression treatment is a type of therapy used to alleviate pain and discomfort in the lower back. It has been approved by the FDA for use by licensed medical professionals such as physicians and chiropractors.
