What Is Decompression Therapy?
Chronic pain treatment uses a traction device to gently stretch the spine. This device can help reduce pressure and pain from bulging or herniated discs between vertebrae and disc degeneration. It may also help with other spinal conditions like sciatica, numbness, tingling in the legs, and general back pain.
How Does Decompression Therapy Work?
First, our chiropractor will examine your spine to determine if decompression therapy is right for you. If it’s determined that this treatment would benefit you, we’ll use a unique table that can provide gentle traction on specific areas of your spine. During each session, the table will alternately move into a slightly different position to stretch the spine and reduce pressure on discs, nerves, joints, and more.
Each session typically lasts between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on your condition and needs. As treatment continues, you may feel relief from pain as tension is relieved in the spine.
What Can I Expect after Decompression Therapy?
Patients often report significant improvements after just one decompression therapy session. However, we recommend a series of treatments for maximum benefit. Many people find an improved range of motion and decreased pain associated with their spinal condition. Lifestyle changes, like avoiding activities that strain your spine, reduce the reoccurrence of symptoms.
