Advanced Healthcare Center Becomes the First Office in Jesup to Offer PENS and Spinal Decompression Traction Therapy

Posted on: 09 Aug 17

JESUP, Ga., Aug. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Living with a herniated disc or any other limitation because of spinal cord issues is absolute misery. Many activities other people take for granted become nearly impossible. Even simple things, like sitting for a prolonged period of time, may result in persistent pain for the rest of the day.

Still, a lot of people simply learn to live with these symptoms because they think that the only alternative is an expensive surgery that may not even produce the results they want.

Fortunately for people living in the Jesup and surrounding areas, Advanced Healthcare Center is now offering both PENS and spinal decompression traction services – the only practice in the city to do so.

Why is this such good news?

Spinal decompression traction therapy can treat both herniated discs and nerve compression. The methods applied during a decompression session aim to promote retraction and/or reposition the herniated or bulging disc. They can also provide an influx of important nutrients and other substances that will promote healing. As an avascular structure, your discs don’t receive fresh oxygen and blood every time your heart beats. “Diffusion” is required, which is what decompression traction therapy causes through simple, painless movements.

Dr. Edwin Davis at Advanced Healthcare Center is certified in the Kennedy Technique of spinal decompression and has successfully treated hundreds of patients in his twenty-three years of practice.

Biowave Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS) is the only device of its kind to receive FDA clearance for treating chronic, acute pain following an operation. It uses a unique technology that mixes high-frequency electrical signals to inhibit the transmission of pain in nociceptive fibers and improve overall function.

This is done via two electrodes that are each outfitted with more than 1,000 micro needles. These needles are only .74 mm in length, so they feel like Velcro. Once the device is turned on, the patient is actually given the controls – an easy-to-use, handheld device. This allows them complete control over their comfort level. Most patients find the process so mild that they actually watch TV or read during the 30-minute session.

Once treatment is completed, they enjoy pain-free functionality for as long as 72 hours. Repeated PENS treatments over a short period of time can result in significant pain relief for up to one year.
