The Injuries and Health Issues Addressed by Spinal Traction/Decompression

Chiropractors can utilize various tools and techniques to treat their patients. Most people may only be familiar with chiropractic adjustments, but they can do so much more to improve your condition.

One particular form of chiropractic treatment we want to highlight is spinal decompression. More specifically, chiropractors administer the non-surgical form of spinal decompression.

To administer this treatment, the chiropractor asks the patient to lie down on a specially designed traction table. After the patient assumes the proper position on the traction table, the chiropractor will activate it. The table will move and gently stretch the spine of the patient.

The gentle motions involved in spinal decompression are critical because they create negative pressure along the spine. That negative pressure eases tension and allows elements of the spine to move back into place. Spinal decompression excels at treating herniated discs for that reason. Your slipped disc gel may return to its original position thanks to this treatment.

Herniated discs are not the only health issues that benefit from spinal decompression. Chiropractors have had success using the treatment on conditions such as bursitis, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and whiplash. Spinal decompression can help address almost any condition that can improve by alleviating pent-up pressure along the spine. That’s a big part of why chiropractors lean on it so much.

You can also expect your injuries to heal faster if you undergo spinal decompression. This treatment will direct nutrients to the injured parts of your spine and help them get better.

The Experience of Undergoing Spinal Traction/Decompression

Undergoing spinal decompression is a fairly uneventful experience. When treatment begins, the chiropractor will ask you to lie down on the traction table and your body will be secured with straps. From there, you don’t have to do much of anything as the table and the chiropractor will get to work.

Treatment will last around 45 minutes, but it could also be shorter than that. The chiropractor will likely ask you to return for additional treatment sessions. The exact number of spinal decompressions you need will depend on your injury.

Expect to feel the benefits of spinal decompression immediately after treatment. Continuing your treatment will improve your condition further.

Call 808-332-5580 and book an appointment with Dr. Banks, Dr. Walther, or Dr. Young of Kalaheo Spine and Wellness Center if you want to try spinal decompression in Kalaheo, HI.
