Spinal Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, neck and arm pain and many failed back surgery cases. This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.
Spinal Decompression: Correcting and Healing
Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically scheduled 2-3 times per week. Each appointment is approximately 10-30 minutes during which joint mechanics will be assessed and corrected through chiropractic adjustment followed by other therapies that may be utilized to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues. After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits. Decompression Therapy is administered to patients in a comfortable, relaxed, environment and is typically pain free.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work With Chiropractic Care?
Correcting spinal and body alignment often requires a multifaceted approach. A spinal injury or condition usually requires Chiropractic care to realign subluxations (vertebrae that are not in correct alignment). However, disc problems may still be present and need treatment even after the vertebrae are realigned. This is why certain patients also benefit from complementary therapies like decompression to address all facets of their back pain, neck pain, spinal injury, sciatica, headaches, etc.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
This depends greatly on your individual condition, but generally relief can begin with just a few sessions.
