At some point in your life, you will likely deal with back pain to some extent. Once you do, you will find that chronic or persistent back pain can be extremely frustrating, especially if nothing seems to provide relief from the pain.
Do you live with persistent back pain? If you do, then you know how it can make ordinary tasks seem impossible. Doing normal household chores or going to work can cause extreme discomfort and pain. Many people who live with persistent back pain turn to medications. However, many pain medications can lead to side effects or other health problems.
Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive procedure involving spinal traction. This treatment involves pulling the spinal column in opposite directions for repositioning. It is a form of physical therapy that does not involve any medication or surgery.
Non-surgical spinal decompression involves motorized traction that can offer relief from back pain. It gently stretches the spine to change its position. These changes in position take a significant amount of pressure off the spinal discs. These are the cushions situated between the spinal bones.
We use a DRX9000 True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System™ that is designed to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative injuries of the spine. Non-surgical spinal decompression can help retract herniated or bulging disks and take pressure off structures in your spine, including the nerves. This helps improve the movement of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids into the spinal discs to promote healing.
To gain long-lasting results, you may need more than one session of spinal decompression. Your chiropractor in Ormond Beach at Labonte Disc Institute will have a better idea of the number of treatments you need after conducting a thorough diagnosis of your condition and learning more about your medical history. For some patients, relief from back pain comes quickly. Others may need more than 25 treatment sessions to feel fully healed.
One treatment session on a spinal decompression machine typically lasts less than an hour. If you feel uncomfortable or uneasy at any time during the treatment, you should request a reduction in the amount of pressure. However, most people find the treatment gentle and comfortable.
Your spinal column will begin to heal itself over time. After several spinal decompression treatments, you will likely experience reduced stiffness in your lower back. You may also notice other physical benefits as you continue with the treatment.
