What is Decompression Therapy?
Decompression Therapy is being used by more and more chiropractors throughout the United State every day. It has been proven to relieve back pain for so many patients. Basically, Decompression Therapy lengthens the spine allowing the disc to get re-absorbed. The patient will be secured on a traction table to and the chiropractor will program the software specifically to determine what areas need to be decompressed with electrical muscle stimulation, heat, or therapeutic laser to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues. It reduces pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.
It has become a successful treatment for those who suffer chronic back pain, sciatica, spinal canal stenosis, degeneration and have already had several back surgeries to no avail. Decompression Therapy helps avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.
Decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical breakthrough treatment for;
- Spinal Stenosis
- Pinched Nerves
- Herniated Discs
- Bulging Discs
- Knee Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What Can I Expect at my First Decompression Therapy Session?
After it has been determined that you are a good candidate for Decompression Therapy and you will benefit from it, you will lie on the traction table and be fitted in a support system. The support system helps stabilize your body as the table moves gently back and forth creating a spongy motion to help in pain relief. The advanced computer-controlled system automatically adjusts to the proper angle of motion, which is what chiropractors refer to as distraction, allowing your chiropractor to target the specific spinal discs. Patients have said that they feel a gentle pulling sensation their back, but it is not painful or uncomfortable.
