Overview of the Service
Spinal decompression is a service we offer that helps alleviate pressure and pain in the spine. During the service, the patient lies on a table and is strapped in at two different spots along their body, usually the pelvis and torso. The device, operated by the doctor or corresponding professional, works by gently and subtly stretching the spine. This changes the force and position of the spine.
This change takes pressure off the gel-like cushions between your bones in your spine by creating a negative pressure within the disc. This service helps bulging or herniated disks retract, taking pressure off of nerves in your spine. Spinal decompression promotes the healing of the disks within the spine by allowing water, oxygen, and other fluids to move within the spine and to the affected areas.
Spinal decompression usually includes multiple treatments within a few weeks’ time. The treatment has incremental levels, based on pain level and pressure on the nerves and the certain condition each patient is dealing with. Alternative to surgery
One of the primary benefits of spinal decompression is pain relief. The constant rubbing of the bones in the spine can be very painful, as there is no cushion protecting them. This service, because of expenses, is generally not offered in by the majority of businesses. This additional service, in some cases, can also be an alternative to surgery as a way to reduce pain and promote spinal healing.
