Spinal decompression therapy has shown spectacular results with patients suffering from chronic back pain. Since there’s no surgery required, treating your herniated disc, bulging disc, sciatic nerve pain, and more are quickly done here at Day Chiropractic.
What is Chiropractic Spinal Decompression?
Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve chronic back and neck pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exact computer program for spinal decompression therapy.
How Do Chiropractors Decompress Your Spine?
Using computer technology in conjunction with a decompression machine, we can create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created, designed and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. A vacuum-like effect pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can clear up back pain and any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves.
Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal decompression therapy can clear up back pain caused by the pressure put on nerves. Instead of turning to dangerous pain medications that cover up the problem, your custom spinal decompression plan will gently work with your body to not just alleviate pain but resolve the root of the problem. For example, patients with a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Spinal decompression therapy would resolve the herniated disc, and in turn, the sciatic pain in the leg.
Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about twenty minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week and are typically finished with treatment within eight weeks.
