How Does Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Work?
Many people suffer from chronic back pain. Any kind of spinal issue can significantly impact your everyday life and interfere with your ability to perform simple tasks. While many people turn to surgery to bring them relief, there is another option. We offer non-surgical spinal decompression at Bakke Chiropractic Clinic to help alleviate back pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a chiropractic treatment that uses motorized traction to relieve back pain. During a treatment session, the spine is stretched to realign the discs, alleviating the pain associated with various chronic back conditions. Spinal decompression improves the flow of oxygen, water, and other fluids to the affected area, promoting the body's natural healing process. As a result, spinal decompression leads to long-term relief rather than temporarily alleviating the pain.
Back Conditions that Can Be Treated Using Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression can be used to treat a variety of back conditions. For example, chronic back and neck pain due to herniated or bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, and even failed back surgery can all be treated with this procedure.
How Does Treatment Work?
The length of time a treatment session lasts depends on the patient's condition and its severity. Our chiropractors will work on a patient for about 40 minutes. Treatment usually includes 20 sessions that take place over a few months. Many people who undergo the treatment find that their pain is eased once they have completed their entire course of treatment. Other types of treatment can be used before or after a therapy session. Treatment may also include hot or cold therapy, massage therapy, or stretching and strengthening exercises.
Who Are not Good Candidates for Spinal Decompression?
Some people are not good candidates for non-surgical spinal decompression. For example, women who are pregnant should skip this type of treatment. It's also not an appropriate treatment for individuals who have osteoporosis, metal implants in the spine, fractures, tumors, or abdominal aortic aneurysms.
