Understanding Spinal Decompression Therapy
Find a more natural way to cope with your chronic pain.
If you’ve been taking pain killers to help you cope with your chronic pain and you’ve been looking for a more natural approach to pain management, you’ve come to the right place. We are Integrated Physical Medicine, and our chiropractors in Evansville offers a variety of approaches to natural pain treatment, including nonsurgical spinal decompression.
What is spinal decompression therapy?
Spinal decompression helps to relieve chronic pain by stretching the spine and separating out each vertebrae, which helps to change the position of the spine and takes pressure off of the spinal disks. Spinal decompression therapy lessens the pressure on the nerves and helps herniated or bulging discs to retract. Because spinal decompression therapy helps to increase the blood flow to the area that is affected, it can also promote natural healing.
Many of our patients have found almost immediate relief after spinal decompression therapy, and long-term pain relief is possible with multiple sessions.
What can spinal decompression therapy treat?
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Bulging or Herniated Disks
- Degenerative Disk Disease
- Diseased or Injured Spinal Nerve Roots
- Worn Spinal Joints
- Spinal Arthritis
- Leg Pain
In addition to all of the above conditions, spinal decompression therapy can be used to treat a number of other conditions that affect the neck, spine, and body.
How is nonsurgical spinal decompression done?
No incisions, anesthesia or pain medicine is necessary with nonsurgical spinal decompression. Using a computerized decompression table, our chiropractor will closely monitor your body’s response to the stretching action so that we can come up with a customized process that will work for your specific needs.
