Nonsurgical spinal decompression can reduce the pressure on affected areas and allow you to move with ease.
What to Expect from Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression involves the use of motorized traction to stretch the spine. The controlled and focused distraction pumps the disc allowing vitamins, oxygen and nutrients to circulate in and out providing the disc with the nutrition it needs to heal. This gentle procedure reduces pressure on the spine. With less pressure on the area, the body returns to the healing process.request an appointment
The Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression, in combination with Specific Spinal Manipulative Therapy, improves the health of the spinal discs ultimately reducing irritation on sensitive nerves that cause pain. This non-invasive therapy is often included as part of an effective treatment plan offering benefits like:
- Improved oxygen, blood flow and movement of nutrients to an affected area, promoting healing.
- Reduced pressure on injured disks often causing a retraction of bulging or herniated disks.
- Decreased pressure on surrounding nerves and structures.
- Being able to perform daily activities and exercises more easily.
- Reduced pain in the back or neck.
Individuals may require a series of in-office treatments. Each session may last up to 30 minutes. Patients often experience less discomfort, inflammation and muscle tension soon after a session. The body takes time to heal. Just as if you were trying to loose weight or gain muscle at the gym. It takes weeks to make lasting effects on the body. The typical Decompression treatment plan lasts from 2-8 weeks depending on the severity of the condition and complicating factors.
