What is spinal decompression?
Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical treatment that takes pressure off your spine to alleviate pain. Your provider uses the procedure to gently and carefully stretch and release your spine to free up space between compressed vertebrae, discs, and nerves.
Spinal decompression draws oxygen, water, and other necessary nutrients to the discs to promote healing and relieve pain. The treatment works equally well, whether it is conducted manually or by a device.
What conditions does spinal decompression help?
The experienced team at Daly Integrated Medical Group recommends spinal decompression for:
- Herniated discs
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Pinched nerves
- Hip pain
- Leg pain
- Spinal stenosis
- Facet syndrome
If you suffer from any of these conditions, it’s likely you’re a candidate for the procedure. However, spinal decompression is not recommended if you have a tumor, fractures, severe osteoporosis, or an abdominal aneurysm.
Does spinal decompression hurt?
Not at all. Many of Daly Integrated Medical Group’s patients report that the procedure is gentle and relaxing. You may even fall asleep on the traction table!
How many spinal decompression treatments do I need?
Your dedicated provider meets with you to learn more about your lifestyle, determine the source of your pain, talk to you about your medical history, perform a thorough exam, and gather X-ray and MRI images.
Equipped with that critical information, they write a custom plan for you. Typically, you’ll have a series of spinal decompression sessions over the course of a month or two. In all, it’s about 15-20 sessions that last about 15 minutes each.
Each treatment corresponds to one of the three phases of spinal decompression therapy:
- Phase 1: Healing
- Phase 2: Strengthening
- Phase 3: Protecting, preventing, supporting
When it comes to results, each person varies. Though some get welcome pain relief within the first week, it may take you between 2-6 weeks to feel better. Your provider monitors your condition closely throughout the treatment phases and makes adjustments to your plan if and when it’s necessary.
For long-lasting relief from your debilitating pain, call the office to schedule a consultation.
