The Spinal Decompression System (SDS) Non-Surgical relief from Neck & Low Back Pain
It’s a leading non surgical alternative for Neck and Back pain. SDS uses, simple yet sophisticated, FDA registered equipment manufactured by a leading rehabilitation manufacturer in United States. Mission Health is equipped with this Spinal Decompression System which is the most popular decompression system worldwide, hardly available in India. It is the leading non-surgical alternative for treatment of Mechanical Low Back & Neck Pain, introduced for the first time in India by Mission Health.
It is indicated in many & varied Spine Pathologies like Prolapsed & Protruding Discs, Radiculopathies, Degenerative Disc Diseases, Canal Stenosis, Spinal Deformities etc. It gives wonderful, promising & quick results.
Mechanism of SDS:
It is far ahead of Conventional Traction Systems used till now. It is designed graphically to give guarded pull patterns of different varieties at affected localized spinal segment. The pull patterns are advanced as the condition improves. It is given on a Automated Decompression Table & can be given in both Supine & Prone Positions. It is also designed to give Lateral Pulls.
The gentle distractive forces of the SDS creates decompression, the unloading due to proper positioning improves blood flow & important nutrient exchange to the injured area. Thus along with decompression it also enhances the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
The therapy sessions typically last for 20-30 min & most of the patients feel relief in as few as 1 0-1 2 sessions. It is important to remember however, SDS works best with other Physiotherapy treatment like LASER, the Core Stability Exercise Program and Ergonomics – the Ideal Life Style for the Back, so that recurrences of Back pain can be prevented.
We have another advanced Electrotherapeutic technology which can deliver two different type of currents from a single probe and gives amazing relief in pain & swelling associated with Orthopedic Conditions. On this machine Ultrasound & Interferential Current can be given at same time as it has different modalities in a single unit. Hence it can save patient’s time by minimizing the treatment duration. It is also equipped with other advanced Electrotherapeutics like Micro Currents, Russian Currents & Didynamic Currents.
Class IIIb LASER:
We have the highest technology in Pain Management for Orthopedic Conditions, Sports Injuries, Rheumatoid Arthritis , other Joint & Soft Tissue Pathologies. It’s the therapeutic LASER with 33 diode cluster probe and a single probe which delivers Red and Invisible LASER doing wonders with inflammation, swelling and pain.
It is one of the finest modalities to treat most difficult pain & swelling. It is very effective for pain relief in the arthritic joints like Knee pain, Shoulder pain, Back pain, Heel pain, Pinched Nerves, Ligament Sprains, Muscle Strains, etc. LASER also helps in Rehabilitation after Nerve injuries. It accelerates the recovery of injured nerves.
It has two major effects:
- It speeds up the Slow Healing
- It initiates the Blocked Healing
Class IV LASER: The most Advanced Technology in PAIN RELIEF.
Today, LASER for therapeutic applications are beginning to gain increased recognition. Tissue that is damaged and poorly oxygenated as a result of swelling, trauma or inflammation has been shown to have a positive response to LASER THERAPY IRRADIATION.
The expansion of Class IV LASER THERAPY for pain management, inflammation reduction and accelerated healing has driven the need for higher power output levels and longer wavelengths resulting in deeper tissue penetration.
Class IV LASER have been shown to provide both the wavelengths and output power levels necessary to trigger therapeutic cellular metabolic changes at deeper tissue level, thus gaining optimal clinical outcome without using excessively long treatment times.
This is a therapy, which does wonders for chronic localized pain, like Heel pain, Tendinitis, Bursitis, Trigger points etc. We have a system which can deliver drug through electrodes attached to the painful spot & gives tremendous relief from pain. The advantage is its Non-Invasive and has only localized effect without any side effects.
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Therapy
This is a Compression System which works wonders for managing vascular disorders like Lymphoedema, Varicose Veins, Idiopathic Lower Limb and Upper Limb Aches. It has different pressure modes which helps in reducing the dull pain & swelling associated with vascular disorders. It uses compressible air pockets which inflates creating compression over the limbs. It improves the blood circulation & stimulates the Lymphatic drainage as well. It is very effective in reducing swelling seen in Post Cancer Surgeries.
Long – Wave Diathermy
The concept of Short Wave Diathermy has now been replaced by Long Wave Diathermy which has a localized & deep penetration giving beautiful relief in tender & trigger points. It is another advancement in ELECTRO THERAPY.
Centralized ECG Monitoring System
Spread over huge area, all centers of Mission Health are equipped with centralized Electrocardiogram Monitoring System. Patient is given a small sensor & through receivers located at different places, ECG of that patient can be picked up, whether he is doing pranayama or treadmill or any other exercise at different departments in the entire centre. It is to ensure safety of High Risk patients undergoing Cardiac Rehab eg. Post By-pass Surgery, Post Angioplasty, Heart Attack & other Cardiac Surgeries.
