Back and neck pain can be caused by a number of issues that can lead to dysfunction in the spinal column. Chiropractic methods offer a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that can effectively relieve pain and improve flexibility. At Pike Chiropractic Therapy Center in Huber Heights, OH, we offer non-surgical spinal decompression to help spinal problems.
What Is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that is used to gently separate the spinal vertebrae to allow discs to return to their natural position. The action creates a gentle negative pressure that pulls discs into position and stimulates circulation for improved healing of tissues. The process is painless and takes less than an hour per session. Generally, a number of sessions are required to provide relief from discomfort. Typically, 3 to 5 sessions per week are needed initially. Your chiropractor may combine non-surgical decompression with other methods, depending on your individual care plan.
Conditions Spinal Decompression Can Help
Non-surgical spinal decompression can be used along with other chiropractic therapies to provide relief from a number of spinal problems, such as:
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Facet syndrome
- Post-surgical pain
What To Expect When Your Chiropractor Performs Spinal Decompression
Your Huber Heights chiropractor will first determine if non-surgical spinal decompression is right for your needs or if there any condition present that contraindicate its use. The doctor will take a full medical history and examine your spine as you move to detect abnormalities in the structures. X-rays and other tests will be done to pinpoint the spinal problem. If non-surgical spinal decompression is indicated, the chiropractor will inform you of the treatment program. During a session, you will be asked to lie down on the special table. A harness is placed around the hips that attaches to the bottom half of the table, which is motorized to provide the gentle stretching motion needed. The device is then activated for a period of time, determined by your chiropractor.
