While the process of correcting and healing a disc begins with spinal decompression, another vital component is to strengthen any musculoskeletal weakness, as this may have contributed to the injury in the first place.
When administered properly, an exercise therapy plan can:
- Improve flexibility
- Increase core strength
- Reduce risk of future injury/degeneration
- Reduce back pain
This is accomplished by specific core stabilization exercises and unique isometric training. By strengthening core muscles, weight is redistributed more evenly across the spine, which helps to maintain gains made during spinal decompression therapy.
At Atlanta Decompression, we go a step further by using state-of-the-art equipment called bioDensity and vibration platform, which build bone and muscle tissue in as little as five minutes a week. We are one of only three offices that offer bioDensity equipment in the state of Georgia.
Isometric exercises along with bioDensity allow patients to fully activate their whole body by isolating one movement or position. For example, pushing as hard as you can against a wall is an isometric exercise.
This stimulus increases muscle and bone density, which are great for combating osteoporosis. Recording pounds of force exerted session to session, the bioDensity machine can also track your progress.
