Spinal Decompression Treatment from Your Little Rock, AR Chiropractor
Issues such as neck or back pain, neuropathy, and sciatica sometimes cause discomfort so severe that sufferers cannot even follow their usual daily routines. Patients who visit our Holistic Touch Medical Centers in Little Rock, AR have access to several treatment options that avoid medication or surgery. One therapy our chiropractor provides is spinal decompression.
Understanding Spinal Decompression
Healthcare providers offer spinal decompression in both surgical and non-surgical modes. Chiropractic employs only the non-surgical type as a noninvasive therapy.
Our chiropractor provides this treatment using a special motorized table. It delivers alternating motion that stretches and then relaxes the patient’s spine to relieve pressure on its various parts. Decompression therapy opens space between vertebrae and permits misaligned spinal discs to return to their correct positions.
This nonsurgical treatment typically benefits these conditions:
- Back pain
- Herniated discs
- Spinal disc injury
- Leg pain
- Spinal nerve injury
Decompression treatments are especially effective for herniated discs. Over time, untreated dryness could lead to inflammation and pain.
How This Therapy Works
Our Little Rock practice provides spinal decompression treatments in our office. The path to recovery begins with an initial consultation with our chiropractor. This includes a physical examination and an assessment of the patient’s complaints, symptoms, and health history. We create an individualized treatment plan for each patient following diagnosis of his or her underlying problem.
During a decompression session, our doctor positions the patient on the adjustable table. He monitors the individual closely and directs the table’s movements with a computer. The ability to direct the motion makes it possible to target precise areas of the body.
As the decompression tables moves, it causes a gentle spinal compression. Traction and relaxation alternate with varying table motions.
The resulting negative pressure forces any bulging contents of a disc back into the disc. The lowered pressure treatment creates permits an inpouring of healing nutrients into a disc. This therapy makes it possible to target very specific areas of the body that require treatment and to eliminate the problem that caused the patient discomfort.
