Non-surgical chiropractic spinal decompression, is done by carefully stretching spine and correcting it to take the pressure off the pinched nerves and herniated, bulging or injured spinal discs. This therapy is safe, comfortable and painless. This is a non-invasive treatment for patients who suffer from neck and back problems. A decompression treatment slowly and gently lengthens or releases pressure in the spine through repetitive movements by a customized treatment table.
The significance of the procedure is to rehydrate the disc and surrounding structures creates a physiological change which assists the body’s natural healing process. This is a good solution for lasting results. The table works by gently pulling and releases, creating a pressure change within the inter vertebral disc, surrounding soft tissue, and joints. Patients typically experience significant improvement within 18-25 treatments. While relief may come early the research shows that continual treatment is necessary for long lasting results. This is because the structure and tissues need time to heal. The combination of regular chiropractic adjustment in conjunction with this therapy has been proven to be an extremely effective approach to keep people from needing surgery and improve preexisting conditions. Main conditions include: Bulging / Herniated disks, degenerative disk disease, facet syndrome, failed back surgery, Ongoing pain and symptoms from prior healthcare providers.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal Decompression Therapy treats Neck and Back Pain related to Degenerative Disc Disease, Disc Herniations or Bulges, as well as Sciatic Pain. If you have been diagnosed with sciatica, a bulging disc or chronic back or neck pain, spinal decompression therapy can help. This revolutionary therapy is different from traditional medical treatments that rely on medication to “cover up” pain. Decompression therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive alternative to back surgery and prescription painkillers.
When the integrity of the spinal joint complex becomes compromised it will elicit pain because of the local pressure, it may also compress nearby nerves. Spinal decompression therapy creates space between the different vertebrae, providing room for the herniated or bulging disc to return to its proper space in the spine. This relieves pressure on the nerves.
