If you’re living with chronic back pain, you may be considering non-surgical spinal decompression as an option to help relieve your symptoms. Here’s a closer look at non-surgical spinal decompression at Davidson Chiropractic Clinic in Evanston and Rock Springs, WY, and what you can expect from the treatment process.
What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a type of mechanical traction therapy used to treat various conditions related to the spine, including herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and sciatica. The treatment involves stretching the spine using a motorized device to decompress the discs and spinal nerves. This process can help to relieve pressure on the spine and reduce pain.
How Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Done?
Our chiropractor will start by performing a physical examination and other tests to determine if spinal decompression is the proper treatment for you. If it is, you’ll be asked to lie down on a spinal decompression table. The table has a motor that will slowly stretch your spine. Our chiropractor will hook you up to a monitor that will help us track your progress and ensure that you’re receiving the correct amount of traction throughout the process.
You may feel a pulling sensation as the table stretches your spine during the process. This is normal and should not be painful. The spinal decompression treatments usually last about 30 minutes, and you’ll typically need to undergo a series of sessions (usually 10-20) over several weeks.
What Are the Benefits of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
There are many potential benefits of non-surgical spinal decompression, including:
- Relief from back pain
- Reduction in pressure on the spine
- Improved spinal alignment
- Increased mobility
- Decreased risk of future injury
