If you suffer from lower back pain, neck pain, or sciatica, Health Solutions offers excellent spinal decompression therapy to give you the relief you need! This nonsurgical therapy involves gently stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving your pain.
When receiving spinal decompression therapy, the spine goes through several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes. This process creates a pressure within the disc itself, which has two potential benefits: the herniated or bulging disc material is pulled back into the disc and blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area is improved, promoting a better healing environment.
During spinal decompression therapy, you remain fully clothed, and the doctor fits you with a harness around your pelvis and another around your torso. You then either lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. A doctor operates this computer, customizing treatment to your specific needs. These therapy sessions typically last less than 20 minutes, 3 times a week for 1 month, alternating from passive to active treatments as you respond, with most patients feeling pain relief with as little as 6-10 treatments. Most patients are released from treatment after 8 weeks.
