For patients experiencing pain in Paradise, Rancho Oakey, or Spring Valley? associated with bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs, as well as other spinal conditions, one way to relieve pressure between the vertebrae to provide a measure of relief is with non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. By gently stretching and relaxing the spine using the latest methods of computer-monitored mechanical traction, we can help decompress the disc tissue. This action not only alleviates painful pressure on the spinal nerves as well as help to facilitate the movement of disc tissue back into alignment, but it also allows oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids to flow freely into the area to promote healing.
Spinal decompression may be recommended by our chiropractors to help alleviate the symptoms of degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and other back conditions.
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 Spinal 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?
As skilled and experienced professionals, we customize treatment to address your specific needs. For maximum therapeutic benefits, we may recommend multiple sessions of spinal decompression therapy in conjunction with other conservative, non-surgical methods of care.
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 Spinal 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.
