Do you experience any lower back, neck, or sciatica pain? If so, our chiropractor, Dr. Wooden and Dr. Wheeler, can help. Fortunately, they offer a variety of different treatments that can help you find the relief you need. We all know back, neck, and sciatica pain can make simple daily tasks rather difficult. The sooner you find relief, the better! One beneficial treatment they offer is spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression is the process of slowly and effectively stretching the spine. To do so, your chiropractor uses a traction table or similar motorized device. You will remain fully clothed and your chiropractor will place a harness around your pelvis as well as a second harness around your torso. You can lie face down or face up on the table. Then, the table gently stretches and pulls your body.

This treatment sends your spine through multiple cycles of stretch and relaxation. It can create a pressure within the discs of the spine, which can help replace a herniated disk or improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the area. This can help promote a better healing environment.

Typically, the treatment lasts about 20 minutes and it’s recommended for 4-8 weeks. This means you should visit three times a week for a month or until you’re feeling relief from your pain.
