Back pain has a number of causes, including nerve inflammation and bulging or herniated discs. If these conditions are the reason for your discomfort, spinal decompression therapy may be able to help. As an entirely natural treatment, spinal decompression does not carry the risks and recovery time associated with more invasive procedures—allowing you to experience relief without side effects.
In spinal decompression therapy, the discs in the spine are decompressed—that is, the pressure is taken off of them—to promote healing. This is done by placing you on a special table while our trained chiropractor uses controls to elongate the spine, which creates a vacuum effect. This not only takes the pressure off of the spinal nerves but also allows the discs to receive the nutrients necessary for recovery.
Relief After A Few Sessions
Many of our patients report experiencing relief after only a few spinal decompression sessions. In addition, because this is a noninvasive treatment, they are able to resume their normal activities right after their appointment.
To determine if you are a candidate for this therapy, our chiropractic doctor will first perform a comprehensive physical examination to diagnose your underlying condition. If your back pain is caused by disc herniations or bulges, the compression of the sciatic nerve, or spinal stenosis, he or she may recommend spinal decompression as part of your overall treatment plan.
