What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression therapy is a wonderful treatment for people who suffer from spinal pain, herniated discs, sciatica, and other related conditions. This non-surgical procedure works by gently stretching the spine and creating negative pressure that helps to relieve pressure on the nerves and discs in the back. Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery and medication, and it can provide long-term relief from chronic pain. This treatment is also non-invasive, which means that patients can avoid the risks and recovery time associated with surgery. Overall, spinal decompression therapy is a wonderful option for people who want to improve their quality of life by reducing pain and discomfort in their back.
What's the Research?
Incredible! One study documented by MRI up to 90% reduction of disc herniations in 10 of 14 cases and other studies repoorted that the majority of ruptured disc patients achieved “good” to “excellent” results ofter spinal decompression therapy.
Should I Be Getting Adjusted At The Same Time?
You should ALWAYS be getting adjusted. As your structure starts to take on a new pattern of movement and weight distribution, it is extremely important that you are getting adjusted to carry on the momentum of changes that are occurring at the foundational level of your body. In this protocol, we usually adjust our patients on every third visit.
Who Should Be Getting Spinal Decompression?
- Herniated discs
- Protruding discs
- Bulging discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Sciatica, leg pain
- Leg numbness
- Arm pain
- Arm numbness
- Radiculopathy (pinched nerves)
Spinal Decompression Protocol
Visit 1-3: Initial Assessment and Treatment Plan
During the first three visits, we’ll conduct a thorough assessment of your spinal and structural hygiene and identify any areas of concern. Based on the findings, we’ll develop a customized treatment plan to address your specific needs through targeted exercises.
Visit 4-7: Spinal Decompression Therapy Sessions will start to increase by increments of 2 – 10 lbs. based on what portion of the spine we are working on.
This treatment involves gently stretching the spine to create negative pressure within the discs, which can help promote healing and reduce pain. Each session will last around 20 minutes.
Visit 8-12: Transitioning segments. Once we’ve completed the initial portion of spinal decompression therapy, you can expect subtle positive changes to occur as they transition into a new position.
Visit 13-20: Strengthening and Maintenance. During the final seven visits, we’ll perform additional spinal decompression therapy sessions to continue the progress you’ve made so far.
Once completed, we will take an additional X-ray to document the amount of space gained at the level of the herniation. We will also monitor symptoms and provide guidelines on how to operate your improved biomechanics on a daily basis.
