Here at Porter & Rabinowitz Chiropractic, we offer several treatments for lower back pain, including spinal decompression. Learn how spinal decompression alleviates back pain naturally and find out if this treatment can benefit you.
Spinal decompression is an effective way to treat many back conditions. We frequently use it for a slipped, herniated, or bulging disc. In these conditions, the material inside the disc slips out of place, causing pain.
Sciatica pain, in which the sciatic nerve is compressed, also responds to spinal decompression. General nerve pain (neuropathy) also responds to decompression.
Osteoarthritis is a common cause of lower back pain. An age-related condition, this causes inflammation, stiffness, and pain. Spinal decompression manages osteoarthritis pain by gently stretching the spine to relieve stiffness.
Degenerative conditions, which include spinal stenosis and degenerative discs, respond to spinal decompression. Decompression brings fresh fluid, oxygen, and water into the spine to nourish the spine.
Spinal decompression is an FDA-certified mechanical traction therapy to treat lower back pain. If you've never been to a Wake Forest chiropractor before, you might be wondering what to expect with spinal decompression.
After a thorough examination to define your symptoms and locate the source of your pain, we will come up with a care plan that combines chiropractic techniques such as spinal decompression with lifestyle advice and nutrition tips. Our holistic care plan not only addresses your symptoms but educates you on helpful tips to avoid back pain.
In a spinal decompression treatment, you'll lie on an adjustable table. The decompression method we use is flexion distraction, which is computer-aided. We program the computer to move your body through a range of both relaxation and distraction positions. The computer allows us to target precisely the vertebrae or disc that needs help.
Consider the example of a herniated disc, in which spinal fluid is protruding from your disc. Conventionally, this would be corrected with back surgery. However, back surgery is not only expensive, it comes with a long recovery and it can be very painful. Spinal decompression treatments use vacuum pressure to fix herniated discs. Our Wake Forest chiropractor creates a vacuum force using the flexion distraction method, and the pressure of the vacuum sucks the spinal fluid back to where it should be. As a result, your herniated disc heals and you do not need to undergo surgery. It takes a series of treatments to fix back problems with spinal decompression, but many patients begin to feel relief after the initial appointment.
