Spinal Disc Decompression for Auto Injuries
Dr. Lyden can perform spinal decompression by using a specialized disc correction technique to reduce the bulging disc manually. This Schultz-Hagan-Lyden Technique gently decompresses the disc and reduces the pressure the disc is exerting on the spinal nerve causing back or neck pain that can radiate down the nerves to the legs or arms or even upwards causing headaches. The gentle movements will gradually separate the back discs from one another, allowing blood to flow through the area and promote a natural healing process. You may feel immediate reduction in pain following this maneuver.
