Relieve Pain and Stimulate Healthy Nerve Function
When you’re in pain, it can be hard to focus on anything else. Neck and back pain can limit your ability to do the things you enjoy most, and can even make performing everyday activities a challenge. If you are one of the more than 31 million Americans who experience consistent lower back pain, or pain in the neck and other areas of the back, spinal decompression therapy may help. Whether you have injured your back at work, in a car accident, or playing sports, or suffer from pain conditions such as sciatica, disc bulges, disc herniations, and other spinal conditions that cause radiating pain, decompression therapy is a safe, effective, nonsurgical alternative for relieving pain. Contact Connected Chiropractic to learn more about this treatment or to arrange an appointment for chiropractic care.
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a beneficial treatment for those suffering from various types of chronic neck and back pain. Spinal decompression involves the use of equipment which gently and safely stretches the spine to release pressure from the spine and spinal nerves. Nonsurgical spinal decompression is just what the name implies — a therapy that decompresses the spine. More specifically, this therapy decompresses the intervertebral discs of the spine while also gently stretching the muscles that run along the spine. This stretching, or spinal traction, improves spinal alignment (posture) and releases tension and tightness from the muscles and connective tissues that can irritate the nerves, which improves nerve function and mobility, and alleviates pain, numbness, and tingling. This decompression method is a safe alternative to invasive surgery, injections, and prescription medications, and can be easily implemented as part of your chiropractic care.
Am I A Candidate?
After consulting with Dr. Brad, undergoing a spinal examination, and postural and spinal screening, we can determine if you are a candidate for decompression therapy. Spinal decompression is ideal for patients ranging in age from young adults to seniors, who have symptoms associated with disc compression, including:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Leg pain
- Arm pain
- Shoulder pain
- Numbness and tingling
Based on our findings during your spinal examination and consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan based on your health needs, health history, and overall health and wellness goals. Treatment frequency and length varies from patient to patient, but in order to achieve optimal results, you will want to stay consistent with your treatments and complete the duration of your treatment plan. Below are some chronic pain conditions that spinal decompression can treat:
- Chronic neck pain
- Chronic back pain
- Lower back pain
- Disc herniations/disc bulges
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
- Posterior facet syndrome
- Injured spinal nerve roots
- And more.
