What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is also known as mechanical traction therapy. This is a type of chiropractic care technique that gently pulls apart the spine, helping alleviate pain and pressure from herniated and bulging discs. These are discs that have either bulged in between the vertebrae or have been pressing against the surrounding tissues and nerves causing pain and dysfunction.
Spinal decompression involves a patient laying on a table strapped into a harness. A chiropractor then uses a highly advanced computer to gently stretch the patient's spine, creating negative pressure to put these bulging discs back into place.
How Else Can a Chiropractor Help?
Chiropractors are trained to conduct spinal decompression therapy safely. We can also help you determine if other forms of treatments to help ease your pain, such as chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine. Our team of chiropractor will determine if you are a good candidate for spinal decompression and if you might benefit from techniques involving the muscles as well, such as massages and corrective exercises.
In addition, our chiropractic team will recommend how many treatments you'll need to feel relief from pain, and how long each of these treatments will last. Progress monitoring care helps your chiropractor determine if the spinal decompression is effective or needs to be changed.
