Post-Surgical Rehab in Clarksville

Undergoing rehabilitation after surgery is essential to maximize your physical potential and accelerate your recovery. 

 Your doctor may give you instructions after surgery such as “restrict movement, be non-weight bearing, or follow posterior hip precautions.” What do these precautions and restrictions mean? Our team at Riverside Spine and Physical Medicine can help you navigate these restrictions and get you back to feeling great post-surgery. 

 Post-surgical rehabilitation is a drug-free, non-invasive way to regain your strength, balance, flexibility, and function following any type of surgery.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

At Riverside Spine & Physical Medicine, Spines Are Our Specialty

This means our healthcare staff is specially trained to diagnose and treat the source of your back pain. All of our treatment options, including spinal decompression, are all-natural, so you can benefit from your treatment without the risks and recovery time associated with more invasive procedures, such as back surgery.

Spinal Decompression

Herniated or bulging discs can put pressure on the spinal nerves, resulting in pain down the back and legs. At Riverside Spine & Physical Medicine, we offer nonsurgical decompression to relieve this pressure and alleviate associated pain. Unlike more invasive options, spinal decompression requires little to no recovery time or powerful pain medications—so you can enjoy the results and continue to perform your daily activities. Spinal decompression uses mechanical traction to gently stretch the spine. During this procedure, you will lay on a special table while our healthcare professional controls the traction device through a computer. A session typically consists of 15 one-minute periods of decompression with a relaxation cycle in between, for a total of 30 minutes. 

Non-surgical spinal decompression causes a vacuum-like effect, which allows any leaking tissue to return to the spinal disc. The vacuum also increases blood circulation in the spine, which brings nutrients and oxygen necessary for healing. Patients report that decompression is a pain-free procedure; in fact, some even fall asleep during their session. 

Surgery should always be a last resort when it comes to treating back pain.

Class IV Laser Therapy

There are many non-invasive methods of pain relief out there that can eliminate discomfort without any recover time. At Riverside Spine & Physical Medicine, class 4 laser therapy is one of the treatments we use to alleviate pain and stimulate healing in our patients. Many people find that they experience immediate results after a short laser therapy session.

Using infrared lasers with a power output of over 500 milliwatts, class 4 laser therapy penetrates the affected tissues, such as muscles, ligaments and bones. Our doctors can adjust the strength of the laser according to your specific condition to get the most powerful results. When the laser hits the tissue, this causes a chain of events that lead to the production of adenosine tri-phosphate, which the cells use for energy. This, in turn, stimulates the injured cells in order to enhance healing, improve nerve function, increase vascular activity, reduce pain and reduce inflammation. The entire process is fairly quick, taking only 5-25 minutes per session.

Our class 4 laser therapy pain relief has proven effective for a number of conditions, including:
R

Degenerative disc disease

R
Disc herniations or bulges
R
Sciatica
R
Spinal stenosis
R
Peripheral neuropathy
R

Carpal tunnel syndrome
