Disc Decompression

What is Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression can help relieve symptoms from: Spinal injuries, Sciatica, Bulging discs, Herniated discs and other spinal conditions.

How does spinal decompression work?

When damaged discs or other spinal problems lead to a buildup of tension on nerves in the affected area, this can cause considerable symptoms to occur. Spinal decompression relieves symptoms by easing tension on these nerves. Stretching the spine during this type of treatment creates negative pressure to develop, which helps reposition the affected discs and promotes the healing process.

How many spinal decompression sessions do patients need?

The number of sessions you need depends on your condition, such as how severe it is and what part of your body it affects. Patients usually notice improvement after undergoing at least a few sessions, although results vary for each patient. You might require more treatment sessions than other patients if you have a more severe injury or an underlying condition that can affect the healing process. Your Ideal Posture and Spine provider will let you know roughly how many sessions you might need for optimal improvement.

Why do some chiropractic patients need spinal decompression and adjustments?

If you continue to have chronic pain and disc problems even after having spinal adjustments, you might need spinal decompression. This type of treatment helps correct disc problems for more effective symptom relief.
