Back and neck pain is among the most common medical complaints from both men and women, and a lot of those symptoms are related to compressed nerves in and around the spine. At Chiropractic First in Wyoming, MI, Dr. James Heath uses spinal decompression to relieve many types of back and neck pain, stimulating natural healing to help prevent painful symptoms from recurring.
Spinal decompression is a medical technique that uses steady, gentle pressure to slowly stretch the spine, eliminating nerve compressions and other issues that can cause considerable pain and other symptoms. During treatment, you’ll lie on a comfortable table supported by sort straps. As you relax, the table will slowly move, gently stretching your spine. Our spinal decompression table is controlled by Dr. Heath using a special computer for optimal relief of painful symptoms.
Your chiropractor may recommend spinal decompression to treat issues like back pain, neck pain, and pain caused by disc issues, including sciatica (lower back pain that extends into the legs) and cervical radiculopathy (neck pain that radiates into the shoulders and upper back). In people with herniated or slipped discs, spinal decompression treatments performed by a skilled chiropractor can even help avoid the need for invasive spine surgery. Spinal decompression is often combined with other techniques like therapeutic exercises to enhance healing.
Spinal decompression helps relieve herniated disc symptoms in two primary ways:
That depends on a lot of factors, including your symptoms, what’s causing them, and other considerations. Dr. Heath will be able to make that determination following your exam and discuss your recommended plan of therapy during your office visit.
No - in fact, many patients report spinal decompression is a relaxing experience, and some even doze while lying on the table during treatment.
