What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal traction, or spinal decompression, is the stretching the spine using a traction table, with the goal of relieving pressure and gently allowing your spine to return to it’s correct position. This technique has been used by chiropractors, osteopaths, and more for many, many years. A compressed spine can cause pain as well as block the natural flow of nutrients and nerve signals to the entire body. The spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner, by a skilled and highly trained chiropractor to bring about alignment.
Will Spinal Decompression Hurt?
No, it shouldn’t hurt. Spinal decompression is a gentle, comfortable procedure that usually takes less than 30 minutes. Many patients find it a relaxing addition to their day and it can easily be done over your lunch break with no disruption to your day.
Is Spinal Decompression Right for Me?
If you’re struggling with nagging pain, or have been diagnosed with a disc condition, it’s likely you could benefit from this type of chiropractic treatment. The best way to find out is to come in and have an initial exam performed by our family chiropractor Dr Jess Thompson. With so many means by which to help you achieve optimal health, she can ensure that the proper technique for your specific needs is used and you’re not just given the any-old-technique-will-do approach. She designs the plan best suited to you!
If you’re concerned about the spinal decompression process, she is more than happy to explain in detail all the steps used, what to expect during decompression, and answer any questions to make you feel completely as ease with her chiropractic practice prior to beginning treatment.
Any chiropractic session with Dr Jess always starts with the entire person. She strives to understand the complete being in order to provide the appropriate treatment. Her goal is a healthy, happy client. Additional treatments that often accompany spinal traction therapy are ultrasound, laser therapy, cold/hot treatments, lifestyle recommendations, and stretches/exercises to maintain physical health between appointments.
