Spinal Decompression

Benefits of Decompression Treatment

Have you been searching for a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require any medication and isn’t completely time-consuming? If you currently suffer from sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or even arthritis or severe headaches such, you may be the perfect candidate for spinal decompression treatment.

Spinal Decompression basics

Spinal decompression treatment is a non-surgical technique used to help get hydration and fluid back into dehydrated bulging and herniated discs. It also reduces the load, or disc pressure, so that bulging and herniated discs can be pulled back in and take the pressure off the nerves.

In addition, spinal decompression allows for theproper nutrients to make it into the disc because discs don’t have their owncirculation system.

Spinal decompressions differs from traction in that it has a computer that can sense when your muscles are contracting, or tense, so that the machine is always putting a decompressive force into the spine, as opposed to traction, which tractions no matter what, whether your muscles are contracting or not. That is the benefit of the computer associated with a decompression machine.

What to expect

A motorized traction table is used to stretch the spine, relieving pressure subtly and comfortably using repetitive movements. During this slow, gentle treatment, you’ll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation.

The goal of the treatment is to is to provide immediate pain relief and promote an optimal healing environment by correcting the alignment of discs. Decompression creates a vacuum between your discs, causing them to reorient themselves to their natural alignment.

You will not experience any pain during sessions and may only experience a slight soreness immediately after treatment. Although you’ll likely start to notice some pain relief after just a few sessions, most people report long-term pain relief after completing their prescribed treatment cycle.
