Spinal Decompression Treatment
Back pain, whether acute or chronic, is always difficult to live with and can be even more difficult to treat. Fortunately, chiropractic care has now advanced and may help alleviate your symptoms of pain in a relatively short time. One treatment for back pain, a herniated disc, or a bulging disc is spinal decompression. A trained chiropractor on our team can conduct spinal decompression safely.
To help experience relief from your back pain, visit us at Grand Oak Health Care in Loganville, GA, and Athens, GA. We want to help our patients live pain-free and improve their quality of life. We can do so by offering chiropractic care and a total wellness package to alleviate pain, including spinal decompression treatment.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is also known as traction therapy. This is a type of chiropractic care treatment that is designed to alleviate pain from herniated disc and bulging disc. These disorders are caused by ruptured discs between the vertebrae, which leak out fluid and compress surrounding nerves and tissues.
Herniated and bulging discs can potentially affect anyone at any age. However, this is more common in people of older age or those that work in physical labor occupations.
During spinal decompression therapy, a patient will lay face up or face down on a traction table. They will be strapped in, while a chiropractor controls a computer that will apply gentle pressure to pull apart the vertebrae. By doing so, spinal decompression helps take pressure off compressed nerves, helps realign the spine, and helps herniated discs go back into place using negative pressure.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Me?
Spinal decompression is safe when done by a trained chiropractor. This type of treatment can be dangerous if done by an unqualified professional, so it's important to visit a qualified chiropractor instead for help.
A chiropractor on our team can help determine if spinal decompression therapy is right for you, or if another treatment can help alleviate your symptoms. When combined with other chiropractic care, such as spinal adjustments to realign your spine, muscle massages to alleviate inflamed muscles, and other types of specialized treatment, you can get the help you need to fully recover from back pain.
