Spinal Decompression in Vernon Hills

Spinal Decompression in Vernon Hills

Let’s talk about Spinal Decompression in Vernon Hills or bad and damaged discs.  It’s important to note that 80% of us at some point in our life experience low back pain.  It’s also important to note that we do have ways to help elevate the issues that surround Spinal Decompression conditions.

We will typically see and treat five different kinds of conditions in Vernon Hills IL:

  • Congenital Abnormalities or bone irregularities
  • Injuries such as car accidents or work related issues
  • Degenerative conditions like Auto Immune, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteo Arthritis
  • Nerve and Spinal Cord injuries like Neuropathy, Radiculopathy, Plexopathy, and Cauda equina Syndrome
  • Non spine related issues, like tumors, endometriosis and even pregnancy

On average we see patients within the 30-50 year old range experiencing signs and symptoms.  Lifestyle also plays a role – so it’s important to maintain a healthy regiment of diet and exercise.

When it comes to diagnosis we tend to use a variety of testing like x-rays, blood tests, CT, MRI and EMG/NEV testing. The gold standard being MRI’s for diagnosis.

Treatment can vary with this condition.  Some patients will take over the counter medication to help initially manage pain.  We will also see patients with prescription medication usage such as muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory.  When the use of these medications aren’t producing the results, we see patients turn to Opioids which have a 50-50% success rate.  Injections are another option with results of 26-51%.  Some patients will require surgery, but again this will only produce a 43% success rate.

We find that Chiropractic and Physical Therapy produce the most successful rate coming in at 63-75%.
