ABS Spinal Decompression Machine

The ABS system is a state of the art spinal decompression machine. The ABS machine treats disc bulge and herniation, disc degeneration, sciatica, spinal stenosis/arthritis and facet syndrome. The machine is computer controlled. The technician enters the treatment plan for the patient. The computer safely monitors the patient status. The ABS machine offers 4 different decompression programs. The ABS in unique in that it considers the diagnosis and spinal tolerance for each patient.  Negative inter-discal pressure is applied, which allows the herniated disks to be restored to their natural state.

The treatment consists of daily 20-minute sessions over a 5-week period. Relief is usually experienced after 6 treatments. A follow up study on the outcomes of decompression therapy found that, 71% of patients showed more than a 50% reduction in pain immediately after treatment, and 86% showed a 50% or better pain reduction at four years. After four years, 52% of respondents reported a pain level of zero. (Anesthesiology News, March 2003)
