Percussion is a new treatment modality for those who suffer from musculoskeletal pain and myofascial trigger syndrome. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that may serve as a therapeutic alternative to trigger point and epidural injections or to be used when other treatments have failed. Performed on an outpatient basis, the New Dimension VibraCussor™ Percussion Instrument carries little or no risk and is relatively comfortable.
Suitable candidates for VibraCussor™ Percussion Instrument:
Individuals who suffer from musculoskeletal pain and local tenderness in areas characteristic for individual muscles or that characterize myofascial trigger syndrome, and in those who experience referred pain in a distribution specific for the individual muscle.

If you suffer from any of the following you may be a candidate for Spinal Decompression; low back or neck pain, sciatica, failed surgery, facet syndrome, bulging or herniated discs, or degenerative disease. Spinal Decompression provides relief to sufferers by gently reducing the pressure within spinal discs. The bones of the spine are slowly and methodically sparated using the state-of-the-art Spinal Decompression Unit. As the vertebrae are sparated pressure is slowly reduced within the discs until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum "sucks" the gelatinous center of the disc back inside thereby reducing the disc bulge or disc herniation.
The treatment motion is computer controlled to provide gentle and painless decompression of the injured spinal discs.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a pain-free alternative that has shown a very high rate of success at reducing and even eliminating back and neck pain altogether. If you suffer from chronic pain, you owe it to yourself to call our office today to make an appointment to see if you're a candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy.
