Decompression therapy slowly lengthens and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressures within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum that helps to reposition bulging discs and pull extruded disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Over time, treatment will help to restore a disc to its normal structure.
Our non-surgical spinal decompression treatment uses motorized traction devices to relieve back pain by gently stretching the spine. As the spine is stretched and forced into a different position, it relieves pressure on the spinal discs. Patients with bulging and herniated discs can start feeling pain relief as the discs begin to retract and pressure on the nerves is reduced. Proper spinal decompression will promote healing by increasing blood circulation and allowing for the movement of water, nutrients, and oxygen to the spinal discs.
Combining spinal decompression with proper chiropractic adjustments and manual therapy will help reduce pain, improve mobility, and stimulate the body’s natural healing capabilities. Laser decompression is an effective treatment method for patients suffering from bulging or herniated discs. If you have been told you need surgery for spinal disc problems, contact our office before surgery. We find that many patients can avoid surgery thanks to advancements in spinal decompression treatment.
Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy
When you visit our Wenatchee chiropractic office, we will discuss the symptoms you are currently experiencing and create a specialized treatment method unique to you. Our goal is to correct structural shifts found in the spine, helping to restore range of motion. Using a sophisticated FDA-approved machine, we will slowly and gently stretch the spine to decompress the discs.
As force is applied to the spine, our machine senses when the muscles resist the stretching and will automatically adjust the force being applied to help release tension in the muscles. We find non-surgical decompression treatment works effectively to relieve spinal disc pressure and helps patients overcome long-term pain. We recommend spinal decompression for patients with the following problems;
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Injured spinal nerves
- Sciatica pain
- Back and neck pain
- Sleep disruption due to muscle cramping and pain
- Worn spinal joints
Our spinal traction therapy treatment will allow us to make lasting changes to the structure of the spine. As we apply small force over a period of time, we can retrain the muscles and ligaments, allowing for a structurally sound spine. Over time, it will lead to less tension and stress on the tendons and ligaments. Contact Elite Chiropractic for spinal decompression treatment and start feeling better today!
