Spinal Decompression Therapy Offered From Family Chiropractic
Around 76 million Americans struggle with chronic pain, and many of them identify back problems as the primary source of that pain. When you experience back pain, it can affect your entire body in a negative manner. You may experience difficulty walking and feel fatigued from the effort of moving about, and the pain can interfere with your ability to succeed at your job or enjoy your normal activities. Fortunately, spinal decompression therapy is now available at Family Chiropractic, serving patients in Brentwood and Franklin, Tennessee suffering from back pain.
Excellent Nonsurgical Option
Many people suffer to such a degree that they feel surgery is their only option, and that can often lead to a long and difficult recovery period along with high medical expenses. Our back pain specialists are highly trained and qualified to offer nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy as an alternative to surgery. According to a clinical study performed by the Orthopedic Technological Review, this therapy has brought immense comfort to around 86 percent of those treated, and it is an excellent choice to address your back pain issues without surgery.
How It Works
Our spinal decompression therapy is a completely non-invasive treatment that is designed to correct the problem and bring you relief from your back pain, and it involves the decompression of the spinal discs throughout your back in an extremely safe and gentle manner. Utilizing a decompression table to provide motorized traction, computer controls are used to carefully stretch the spine. This works to reposition the spine and take pressure off of the spinal disks.
This therapy can result in the retraction of spinal disks that have become bulging or herniated, and it can also remove pressure that has built up against nerves and other areas of the spine. Ultimately, this therapy is expected to promote healthy healing by allowing easier movement of oxygen, water and fluids that are rich in nutrients within each spinal disc.
Your chiropractor will evaluate your specific back problem to assist you in determining if spinal decompression therapy is the correct treatment for your condition. There are several conditions that may be successfully treated with this form of therapy.
- Degenerative disk disease
- Pinched nerves
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
- Worn spinal joints
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Leg or arm pain caused by pressure on spinal discs
An acute injury, a repetitive stress injury or something as simple as chronic bad posture can cause your vertebrae to become out of alignment and apply painful pressure to your spinal discs.
