What Is Spinal Decompression?
At Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, we offer spinal decompression treatment. Spinal decompression involves gently stretching spine. This allows the discs between the vertebrae of your spine more space to decompress. If these spinal discs are under less pressure, they may be able to heal faster and you may feel less pain. We have a special machine in our office that extends the spine of any patient quickly and safely. Our chiropractors are highly trained and experienced with this specific procedure. The procedure itself does not take very long and should cause minimal pain, if any. You may only need one session, or we may recommend several sessions. It depends on the state of your condition. Our team will explain your course of treatment, so that you know and understand what to expect.
What Conditions Is Spinal Decompression Therapy Used For?
Spinal decompression can be used to relieve back pain from several different conditions. It is most often used on patients who have bulging or herniated discs. It can also be used for patients who have a chronic back condition that causes degenerating discs. If you have lower back pain, it is possible that you have one of these conditions, and that spinal decompression can help you. Many traditional doctors will recommend surgery for bulging or herniated discs. However, these surgeries can be dangerous and painful. Spinal decompression offers a nonsurgical option that is safer and less painful than surgery. Spinal decompression therapy will not disrupt your life with a long recovery time like surgery will.
