Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical procedure used by our chiropractors that effectively treats disabling pain in the lower back, neck, radiating arms & legs, as well as headaches. Decompression Therapy is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs, as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases. It does this by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.
Spinal Decompression Therapy effectively enhances the healing process and often renders quick, effective, and amazing pain relief that enables most patients to return to a more active lifestyle. Research to develop this procedure was conducted by prominent physicians, engineers, and technicians at major teaching hospitals. This treatment helps patients avoid the risk of anesthesia, surgical complications, and the potential of failed back surgery.
Spinal Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions, typically 2-3 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues. After treatment, the doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help the patient regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.
“I originally came in for chiropractic care and ended up trying out acupuncture as well. I was having issues with my stomach and migraines, and Dr. Stephen recommended that I see Dr. Allison for acupuncture. It’s been working great so far. I may even start nutrition with Michelle Miller soon as well. I came in for my back pain and ended up with a whole lot more. This place offers the whole package!”
“I love the energy here!! Other places have a very “medical” feel but here it feels like I’m coming home.”
