Spinal decompression, or non-surgical decompression, is a type of traction therapy that Dr. Worley uses on your spine. This procedure helps relieve pain in your back or leg.
It’s often recommended as a treatment alternative for many types of lower back pain, sciatica (leg pain), or neck pain from a herniated disc, bulging disc, or degenerated disc.
Spinal decompression therapy works to restore the natural balance in your spine rather than just treating your symptoms of pain and discomfort. With a success rate of almost 90%, spinal decompression therapy eliminates your pain.
Spinal decompression doesn’t just mask your pain with drugs or use invasive surgical procedures that can take weeks or even months of recovery. Because this type of therapy accelerates your body’s natural healing process, it’s not uncommon to feel immediate relief within the first two visits.
Dr. Worley works to relieve your pain by first stretching your spine, which alleviates the pressure that your pinched nerve suffers. The procedure also increases circulation to your damaged disc, initiating your body’s natural healing process.
During the spinal decompression session, you lie fully clothed on a motorized table. Dr. Worley places a harness around your hips, which is attached to the lower part of the table near your feet.
The table's upper portion remains fixed while the lower part slides back and forth. This movement ultimately alleviates your back pain.
Decompression therapy shouldn't cause you any pain, although you might feel the stretch in your spine.
Spinal decompression therapy is the most gentle and least invasive of all medical procedures. However, it’s not recommended for everyone because the treatment involves stretching your spine.
Dr. Worley will evaluate your specific condition to decide if spinal decompression therapy is the right treatment option for you.
Whether you’re suffering from sciatica or lower back pain, call Ouzts-Tinney Chiropractic & Spinal Rehabilitation or schedule an appointment online to see if Dr. Worley can alleviate your pain with the help of spinal decompression therapy.
