SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
At HealthWise Chiropractic, we provide Spinal Decompression Therapy, a wonderful alternative for those facing spinal surgery due to chronic back pain, neck pain, or sciatica. This technique offers potential pain relief for patients suffering from a host of spinal and joint issues.
THE PROBLEM: BACK PAIN/ NECK PAIN/ JOINT PAIN
Patients suffering from back pain, neck pain, or joint pain often experience a decreased quality of life and a loss of health and wellness. Issues like sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and arthritis can all cause debilitating pain. Many patients have been offered only a handful of invasive options, like drugs, injections, or spinal surgery. At HealthWise Chiropractic, we offer you an alternative treatment that is non-invasive and offers potential long-term pain relief.
THE SOLUTION: SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
Spinal Decompression Therapy utilizes a special machine here in the HealthWise Chiropractic clinic that alternately stretches and relaxes your spine. This provides relief to the discs in your spine by removing the pressure that is continually put on them and creating a vacuum within the discs that pulls fluid from surrounding tissues. This technique increases blood flow and allows nutrients to reach your spinal discs, helping them to repair naturally. This ultimately allows them to reshape and reposition so that they no longer put pressure on spinal nerves.
THE EXPERIENCE: WHAT IS SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY LIKE?
While you lay on a special table, one of our Doctors of Chiropractic or one of our Chiropractic Technicians will apply a padded strap around your torso or a combination of padded straps around your head. This is connected to a very sophisticated machine that methodically stretches and relaxes your spine over the course of 15-30 minutes. The alternate phases of stretching and relaxing are controlled and methodical. There are no sudden movements involved with this technique.
