Spinal Decompression Machine from Chiropractor in Metairie, LA
Undergoing spinal decompression may cause concern. One of the most common concerns is figuring out what a spinal decompression machine is and how it can help them with back pain.
At Provance Chiropractic Sports & Wellness, LLC in Metairie, LA, we're happy to provide chiropractic care and answer any questions you have about spinal decompression or any of our services.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
A spinal decompression machine is a mechanical traction device that applies gentle and controlled stretching to the spine. This steady pressure can help relieve nerve pain in the discs and spine, which can help reduce pain. Spinal decompression can also help improve the range of motion and function.
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment option for several conditions, including herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and facet syndrome. However, it's important to note that not everyone is a candidate for spinal decompression therapy. Our chiropractor will need to evaluate your condition to determine if this is the right treatment.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
During a spinal decompression session, you'll lie on a table. The table has straps that wrap around your pelvis and another around your legs. Then, our chiropractor will operate the machine to stretch your spine gently. Each session lasts about 30 minutes.
Most people need to undergo a series of sessions, typically 20-30, for the best results. These sessions will be spaced out over several weeks. Some people may experience relief after just a few sessions, while others may need more.
A computer will control the machine during your session. Our chiropractor will monitor the traction applied and make any necessary adjustments. You shouldn't feel any pain during the treatment. However, if you do, let the chiropractor know so they can make the required adjustments.
What Are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression can offer several benefits, including:
- Relief from back pain
- Improved range of motion
- Decreased need for pain medication
- Increased function
In addition, most people see results after just a few sessions. This procedure makes it a shorter and less invasive treatment option than surgery. In addition, spinal decompression is entirely safe when done under the supervision of a trained professional.
