Among the advanced chiropractic techniques available at Reagan Integrated Sports Medicine is spinal decompression, a non-invasive and low-risk treatment that gently stretches the spine to reduce the pain associated with a disc injury or sciatica.
Spinal decompression gently lifts pressure off the spinal discs and nerves, allowing herniated or bulging discs to retract. As a result, nutrient-rich fluids, oxygen, and water can flow freely into the discs, so they can heal.
Some of the conditions that can be treated using spinal decompression include:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Herniated disc
- Facet syndrome
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
It is performed using a special adjustable table designed to stretch your spine and create negative pressure within discs. The amount of pull is carefully calculated to meet your individual needs. This traction force results in the repositioning of the spinal discs and material to alleviate pain due to disc bulges.
This procedure serves as an effective alternative to surgery and more painful treatment options. In fact, patients often compare it to massage therapy, because it often results in less pain and better range of motion after the treatment.
Depending on your specific injury and treatment plan, spinal decompression therapy usually consists of 15 to 30 sessions. Each session lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes and is typically scheduled over a four- to six-week period.
Because it is only performed by a licensed chiropractor with an extensive understanding of human anatomy and advanced training, nonsurgical decompression therapy is both safe and effective.
