Be Yourself Again: Spinal Decompression for Pain Relief

Neck, back, and leg pain can make it difficult to enjoy your life to the fullest. Spinal decompression could be the answer, but like many others who would benefit, you may have never heard of it.

Spinal decompression is an alternate treatment designed to help relieve body pain brought on by the spine, such as sciatica. While the treatment is extremely effective (70-86% of patients show significant reduction of pain), many are still unsure how it works.

The Science

Sophisticated equipment connected to a computer electronically distracts and decompresses your spinal structures while you rest comfortably in a padded harness.

The harness is attached to the treatment table, and gently secures the patient into place during a session. This is what focuses the subtle distractive force around along the spinal column.

This decompresses your spine, specifically the invertebral discs and joints, and stretches your spinal muscles, the three structures that produce most of your pain. Your body responds to this movement by flooding the area with valuable oxygen, blood, and nutrients which help promote your body’s natural healing process.

Is It Right For You?grandpa

Treatments are non-disruptive to your daily lifestyle. There is no downtime, so you can feel free to continue your normal work schedule and recreational activities during your treatment plan.

There is no surgery, anesthesia, infection, injections, or prescription medication involved.

Each session is approximately 20 minutes long, depending on your particular circumstances. Before treatment, your chiropractor will go through a detailed medical history with you, including any s-xrays or CT/MRI scans.

To have your case evaluated by a doctor, schedule your initial exam with Dr. Rob at the Family First Chiropractic Wellness Center today.
