Accident Care Clinic provides a non-surgical, drug-free approach to healing your body and increase vitality, and promote well-being. One of the services we offer is spinal compression therapy.
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical modern traction procedure used to treat arm, neck, leg, and lower back pain. It’s very effective to alleviate pain related to spinal disc herniation and degenerative spinal discs. Decompression of the spinal neural elements is a key component in treating spinal radiculopathy, myelopathy, and claudication.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal decompression consists of decompressing the spinal discs and facet joints by using distraction, positioning of the body, and traction. This procedure is clinically proven to relieve the pain and symptoms associated with herniated discs.
How Long Are Treatments And How Many Do I Need?
A normal spinal decompression session can last from 15 to 20 minutes. You can expect this treatment to include additional physical therapy which can take up to 45 minutes. It really depends on the patient’s condition and what the pre-treatment evaluation will determine. This treatment can take anywhere from 10 to 24 sessions to feel the true benefits, dependent on the individual.
Will My Pain Go Away For Good?
Many patients find long term relief and effective management of their pain after finishing the recommended program. The probability of recurring pain will be significantly reduced by doing regular exercises at home. But like with any other rehabilitation program, you need to make sure to continue these exercises if you want to avoid the pain coming back. Our team will provide you with a full program to make sure you receive the full benefit.
Will Spinal Decompression Therapy Hurt?
Spinal decompression is actually very comfortable and gentle. The equipment used is safe and effective. Most patients will feel a sense of stretching on their back or hips, and some of them even fall asleep during the treatment.
