Back pain and spinal adjustments are the most common reasons people seek chiropractic care.
One of the treatments chiropractors use to treat back pain is spinal decompression.
Non-surgical spinal decompression relieves pressure on the discs and nerves in your back using a traction table to gently stretch your spine and create negative pressure in your discs.
Negative pressure is a vacuum-like effect that helps draw fluid and nutrients into your discs while stretching and helps reposition bulging or herniated discs, relieving pressure on the nerves and reducing pain.
At Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness, we use a traction table to perform spinal decompression. The patient is secured with straps or a harness, and the table then gently pulls your spine, creating negative pressure within the spinal discs.
Chiropractic is a total body healing practice and is a safe and effective alternative treatment to surgery.
When you visit Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness, we perform a full patient history and design a treatment plan specifically for you.
If you’ve been treated for your back pain, but it hasn’t provided the relief you’re looking for, contact us today at Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness to determine if non-surgical spinal decompression is right for you.
Surgery is not your only option when it comes to back pain. Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free alternative that can alleviate numerous back and full body conditions.
Manual manipulations of the spine are a common and useful chiropractic treatment for many people suffering with chronic back pain and soreness, while the goal of spinal decompression is to target the discs in your back.
Spinal decompression is recommended for people suffering from more severe back and neck pain and those for whom standard physical therapy, chiropractic care, and medical massage have not provided lasting relief.
It can be used to treat herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and sciatica or to treat symptoms from a failed back surgery.
Symptoms that may indicate the need for spinal decompression are:
