Understanding Spinal Decompression
If you have suffered from back pain and have been told by a doctor that spinal decompression may be right for you, it can be scary thinking about going under the knife. The good news is that chiropractic care is an effective nonsurgical option for spinal decompression. Here is what you need to know about spinal decompression services offered by our chiropractor in Chandler.
The Inversion Table
Our chiropractor performs spinal decompression with the aid of an inversion table. After securing you to the table with a harness, our chiropractor will begin gently decompressing your spine. An inversion table does not necessarily mean you will hang upside down – there are different types of inversion tables, many of which are computer operated. At the end of the spinal decompression session, you will feel immediate relief. It will take several sessions, likely over a couple of months, before proper spacing between your spinal discs is restored.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
By reducing pressure on your spinal discs, spinal decompression is incredibly effective in relieving back pain. Spinal decompression can also help address the symptoms of sciatica, which include burning, numbness, and tingling. By increasing circulation, spinal decompression can also help expedite the healing of back injuries.
Unlike surgical spinal decompression, our chiropractic services are natural and non-invasive. Surgical decompression requires both prescription medication and an invasive procedure, neither of which are included in our therapy. There is also a lengthy recovery period following spinal decompression surgery, which is not the case for chiropractic care. Following each spinal decompression session, you will leave our clinic feeling great.
What to Expect from the Chiropractor in Chandler
When you come in for your first appointment, our chiropractor will sit down and talk with you about your goals and expectations regarding chiropractic care.
