Dr. Christiansen is proud to be the first and only doctor in the Ann Arbor area to have been certified through Hill Laboratories in Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This breakthrough in medical technology significantly reduces or eliminates back and neck pain with the use of the Hill DT decompression table, and allows us to safely treat a wide variety of patients, including those who have been diagnosed with herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative disc disease.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a safe, drug-free treatment that works by gently lengthening and releasing the spine, creating negative pressures within the spinal discs. This reversal of pressure creates a vacuum within the disc space, and helps to pull the bulging disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves and surrounding soft tissue. Nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are also pulled back into the disc, which helps stimulate the bodies healing process. Lasting results for chronic back and neck pain have been achieved with this innovative new technology.
Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonials, from patients treated with the Hill DT table:
Non-surgical spinal decompression is used for treatment of serious spinal conditions such as herniated discs, bulging and protruding discs, posterior facet syndrome, sciatica, brachial neuritis, and degenerative discs, without the invasive surgery that used to be the final option for most back pain sufferers.
