Are you looking for spinal decompression in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley? Cervical decompression is a non-surgical approach to care that is designed to help alleviate arm, neck, and back pain. By gently stretching the spine to reduce the pressure created by compressed vertebrae, a patient’s pain can be relieved and the healing of dysfunctional, bulging, degenerating, or herniated spinal discs facilitated.
The goal of cervical decompression therapy is to restore the natural alignment of the spine to alleviate chronic neck, arm, back, or leg pain. Based on the specific needs of each patient, the number of treatments will vary.
This gentle, non-surgical procedure can provide lower back and neck pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art procedure for, bulging, herniated or degenerative disc disease in the neck and lumbar regions.
The gentle distractive forces of the Cervical Decompression create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, 3 times a week for 1 month, transitioning from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as few as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 8 weeks.
A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization ligaments, tendons and muscles is a vital part of Cervical Decompression. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck.
Regular home exercise and periodic visits to our office will help in maintaining your spinal health and reduce the probability of reoccurrence.
