What is Spinal Decompression Treatment?
Spinal Decompression is a technique used to separate the vertebra of the spine and allow for decompression at a specific level. This is achieved by specific spinal positioning in conjunction with varying the degree and intensity of force used.
This can be used to treat a variety of issues, including disc herniations, degenerations, and bulges, all which press on surrounding nerves in the low back, causing pain or numbness.
The Spinal Decompression Treatment
A patient is strapped into a machine that gently pulls at the affected area, relieving pain.
What to expect from Spinal Decompression
Most patients report a reduction in pain after the first few treatments. Typically, significant improvement is obtained by the second week of treatment. Though uncommon, the patient could also experience mild cases of muscle spasm for a short period of time. This is not a cause for alarm, and will fade.
