Not your typical table: the 3-D ActiveTrac

Spinal decompression under the guidance of a skilled Chiropractor can provide non-surgical treatment for many common back conditions. The 3-D ActiveTrac is a machine that treats neck and back problems using spinal decompression. This machine has received FDA approval for treatment of back pain, and is considered state of the art therapy for non-surgical and non-invasive back pain treatment.

For those people suffering from pain due to herniated discs and degenerative disc disease the 3-D ActiveTrac promises relief. The machine uses traction, done in a slow and controlled manner, to gently pull the spine apart to stretch the intervertebral disc spaces. This stretching in turn removes pressure on discs, nerves, and bones. The spinal decompression is very precisely accomplished by a computer within the machine. The treatment generally consists of heat therapy prior to spinal decompression to relax the muscles. Electrotherapy is used after decompression to complete the treatment. A session typically lasts 30-45 minutes and usually begins with daily treatment for the first 2 weeks, with frequency of visits determined after evaluation of the patient.

Results are best for those people suffering with herniated disc injuries more than any other condition. 74% to 87% of patients receiving spinal decompression treatment report positive results. Call Dr. Michael Newman at (305) 666-1402 to see how  the 3-D ActiveTrac (adoringly nicknamed “the table” by his patients) can help reduce your back pain. Be pain free now!
