Prescott Spinal Decompression Therapy

Prescott non-surgical spinal decompressionWeary Chiropractic Clinic sees a lot of back pain patients in our busy Prescott chiropractic office. Many of these people have some kind of spinal issue that is causing them pain and discomfort. Fortunately, Weary Chiropractic Clinic has found that spinal decompression treatment is an effective way to help these individuals.

What is Spinal Decompression and How Can it Help Me?

Non-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment method that takes all of the positive benefits that one normally gets from chiropractic, traction, physiotherapy, exercise therapy, and myofascial therapy and merges them all into one.

The objective of decompression is to keep you off the operating table, and that is precisely what it's done for a number of people, as it has a reported 85% success rate.

A few of the issues spinal decompression helps with include generalized back pain, sciatic nerve pain, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, compression fractures, and joint pain.

Spinal decompression works by reversing the effects of wear, tear, and the force of gravity that compresses the intervertebral discs in your neck and back. The movie below shows how it works to decrease pressure on your back and helps decrease pain and disability.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

We find spinal decompression to be an effective approach.

Understanding Spinal Decompression Therapy

To help you better understand spinal decompression therapy, think of the discs in your spine like water balloons filled with jello. When you compress them (which occurs due to normal living, sustaining an injury, or other medical conditions), they can protrude, placing pressure on the nerves in your spine. This affects your brain's ability to communicate with tissues in the rest of your body.

If the stress on the discs becomes too high, the discs can herniate or protrude. This removes the padding between your vertebrae and can cause pain. The purpose of spinal decompression therapy is to alleviate this pressure to help restore your body's function and also reduce your level of discomfort.

Can Spinal Decompression Therapy Help Me?

Spinal decompression therapy relieves disc pressure through the use of a specially designed table that carefully elongates your spinal column through slow and controlled movements. This decreases the pressure placed on your discs. Some studies show an increase in disc height by as much as 1.3 millimeters after just six weeks of this treatment.

If you're wondering if spinal decompression therapy could help you feel and perform better, simply call our Prescott office and schedule an appointment with Weary Chiropractic Clinic today. Your optimal health is our number one goal!
