Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy
Each of us is constantly in a battle—with gravity! A frequent casualty is the soft disc material that separates each spinal bone. Pressure from our weight, trauma from an accident and other causes can increase the pressure on a weakened disc. In extreme cases, the soft pulpy center of the disc can escape. That can be quite painful.
We use the latest technology to help relieve the effects of back pain due to herniated and degenerated discs. Since discs are constantly under weight-bearing pressure, they can be slow to heal. By gently “stretching” your spine, we help relieve pressure and enhance healing. This is called disc decompression.
First, we’ll have you lie down on our specially-equipped table. Then, ever so slowly, we’ll stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax. Our patients tell us this tractioning process is quite pleasant, even relaxing. Because they don’t feel the need to “guard” their spine, each sequence helps the damaged disc receive nourishment, expel cellular waste and enjoy reduced pressure. Then, healing can begin.
While not a cure-all, our decompression table is highly effective, especially when combined with chiropractic care. Our experience shows that decompression can be helpful in supporting cases prone to frequent relapses. Do you know someone we could help overcome the effects of gravity?
When combined with specific chiropractic adjustments the results are simply amazing. In fact, new research shows spinal decompression to be very successful in treating painful herniated, slipped, and bulging disc!
Disc Degeneration can cause a wide-variety of pain throughout the body, and often gets worse with movements such as bending over, reaching up, or twisting. The discs separate your vertebrae by acting as soft, compressible, “shock” absorbers within the spine, and can flare up in a number of widespread ways. An affected disc in the neck area may result in neck or arm pain, while an affected disc in the lower back may result in pain in the back or down your leg. A synergistic, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy effectively relieves the pain, and is available at Wellness Centers of Richland Hills. The procedure is so pain-free that some patients have even fallen asleep during treatment.
