Spinal Decompression – AcuHealth Chiropractic Columbus Ohio Area
Spinal decompression is a gentle therapy for the relief of back, neck, arm, or leg pain associated with herniated discs, bulging discs and low back pain. It is an FDA- cleared, non-surgical treatment that has a high success rate, even after failed surgery. Anyone who has neck, back, arm or leg pain may be helped by this procedure.
During the procedure, distraction and relaxation phases for an isolated disc are cycled back and forth. This places the disc under negative pressure, causing a vacuum effect within it.
Because of the negative pressure created around the bulging disc, material that has protruded or herniated can be pulled back within the normal boundaries of the disc, thereby hastening healing and relieving pain.
During your treatment session, you can expect to be on the table for fifteen minutes, (plus a few minutes to get on and off of the table.)
You should expect to feel a nice relaxing pull as the table goes to work. As the table stretches the spine, you can feel the pressure coming off of the injured disc.
Many patients comment that “they would like to stay there all day,” but fifteen minutes is enough time to give the therapeutic benefit.
How long will it take to get the results you want? It depends on the severity of your condition. Your doctor will take into consideration all of the variables of your particular condition and make treatment recommendations that make sense.
Some conditions are helped in 2-3 treatments while others may take longer. This will all be discussed at your consultation.
