Living in constant pain takes not only a physical toll, but also impacts psychological well-being. When you experience chronic pain, you can become focused on the intensity of pain, location of pain, increase or decrease in discomfort, and, ultimately, relief. Not every person finds relief through the same form of treatment. At Beyond Wellness Chiropractic Center, we have devised multiple avenues to approach pain management, one of which is spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression is a treatment that has been used by both medical physicians and chiropractors for some time. There is a surgical form of this treatment, which may be unnecessary when there is a non-invasive way to reduce the stress on the spine right in your chiropractor's office. Using gentle, pain-free spinal decompression, we can help you find relief from:
- Generalized back or neck pain.
- Sciatica, which affects the legs with pain, tingling, or weakness.
- Herniated or bulging discs.
- Degenerative disc disease.
- Worn joints in the spine (facet syndrome).
- Diseased or injured spinal nerve roots (radiculopathy).
- Back pain after spinal surgery.
When you receive spinal decompression therapy at Beyond Wellness, you are also treated with Inertial Extensilizer (IE) therapy, which utilizes your own body mass to create a pump effect. Using spinal decompression with IE therapy, a vacuum effect develops, actually sucking in bulges or herniation in discs. This occurs because the space between vertebra increases as the spine is decompressed, and negative pressure develops. Spinal decompression also encourages degenerated discs to heal, as the pump effect created by the IE therapy delivers oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the affected area and forces out waste.
Following a spinal decompression treatment, you are treated to a gentle adjustment. Many patients report feeling a decrease in pain after just a treatment or two, but it may take several weeks of ongoing treatment to re-train the body into its proper position.
If you are ready to get more joy out of living through the elimination of chronic pain, contact us to discuss your options for spinal adjustment and spinal decompression.
