What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy has been around for years. It is a motorized traction therapy that gently stretches the spine. It works to take pressure off of your spinal discs and nerves. It is a gentle, non-surgical procedure that creates a decompression of the spine to improve blood flow and nutrient flow in the affected area.
The number and length of the spinal decompression treatment sessions will depend on your condition and health needs. A patient will typically experience several cycles of treatments that will last 15 to 20 minutes each. A patient receiving spinal decompression therapy is strapped into a harness that goes around their lower back. The treatment is controlled by our chiropractor with the aid of a computer.
Depending on your condition, spinal decompression can be combined with other chiropractic treatments such as spinal adjustments and alignments, hot and cold therapies, and massage therapy. We will also work with you with stretching exercises that you can perform at home to help you get the most out of your treatments.
The Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression therapy has been an effective and safe treatment modality that chiropractors have used for years. Studies and testimonials show that it works. It is an essential alternative to surgery for many painful conditions that our patients struggle with every day. It is also an alternative to pain medication that can be addictive and have severe side effects.
