Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure that involves stretching and manually adjusting the spine in a comfortable and safe setting. The patient lays down on a table for a specific amount of time as a device helps stretch out the spine. At Sanders Chiropractic and Wellness, we use spinal decompression to help relieve pain in the lower back or neck for patients without the use of surgery.
More often than not, people will decide to go through surgery in response to debilitating back pain without considering therapy and non-surgical options first. While there are conditions where surgery is the most effective treatment option, many cases only need therapy or chiropractic treatment. Fortunately, we can provide patients the treatment they need to relieve pain without surgery. One such treatment is spinal decompression, which helps to treat:
- Bulging, herniated, and/or degenerating discs
- Pinched Nerves
- Spinal issues
Spinal decompression creates a negative pressure within the discs that can help reposition the disc material. People may not realize that the spine can greatly influence other areas of the body. Since the spine is the highway of the body, any issues in the spine can cause greater issues with one’s overall health. If the discs in the spine are misaligned, bulging, herniated or damaged, then the individual may experience more than just soreness.
With spine issues, even the simple act of sitting down can become a painful chore. In some cases, spinal decompression may not be enough to completely treat the issue. We will also recommend other forms of therapy following the spinal decompression.
For patients who have previously received surgery, we provide physical therapy or spinal decompression which are necessary to help the recovery process. Attempting to treat damaged or bulging discs requires more than medication or a massage. Spinal decompression will help cure disc issues in a non-painful way that will allow you to avoid other potentially harmful methods like surgery and medication.
Our team of professionals has the knowledge and skill necessary to keep patients safe and comfortable during the treatment; however, we understand that patients may have questions or concerns about spinal decompression and we are happy to address them. We want each patient to understand the procedure and have a firm grasp of what the treatment will entail.
