What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that can alleviate pain in the neck, back, and from sciatica. During a therapy session, Dr. Grubb will utilize a specialized piece of equipment known as a mechanical traction device on your injured area with the goal of improving blood flow, better positioning the spine, and increasing the number of nutrients in the area being treated. While being treated, you'll lie on a motorized table with the bottom half being capable of movement. A specialized harness will be attached to your hips and near your feet to ensure proper positioning during treatment. Typically, a treatment lasts between 20 and 30 minutes and you can expect to feel a stretch in your spine, but no pain. At Capac Chiropractic we'll help to develop a treatment plan that enables you to return to an active lifestyle, but you can expect to need 15 to 30 spinal decompression therapies over a four to eight week period to see significant improvement.
Am I a Candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy?
There are few body parts more important than the spine because it provides support for your entire body. The spine, or backbone, includes numerous vertebrae, ligaments, and discs that enable it to bend and be flexible. Injuries and the aging process can lead to compression of the vertebrae in your spine that then activate the numerous nerve endings that can send pain throughout your body. Spinal decompression therapy is designed to relieve that pain by safely stretching your back and making small adjustments. Candidates for spinal decompression therapy including anyone with the following conditions:
- Degenerative discs
- Pinched nerves
- Spinal stenosis
- Herniated discs
