Spinal Decompression and Pain Management
Millions of Americans experience chronic pain on a regular basis. This type of pain can be debilitating and disruptive to your daily life. Our professionals at the Chiropractic Wellness Center offer treatments that can ease joint pain, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, and more. While several types of medication are available to deal with the effects of chronic pain, not all have the desired effects. Chiropractic treatments like spinal decompression focus on specific areas of the body to ensure the best pain relief possible.
If you suffer from chronic pain, we offer a variety of services that can help. If you live in Kansas City, MO, or the surrounding areas, give Chiropractic Wellness Service a call today.
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a proven chiropractic method that helps heal and regenerate areas that cause pain. When the spine is gently stretched, it relieves pressure on the rubbery cushions between the vertebrae, also known as discs. When discs are pressured, the result can be bulging, misalignment, and more. The pressure put on the nerves can cause excruciating pain. To relieve the pain, a chiropractor will use special machinery to help the healing process.
What Conditions Can Be Helped With Spinal Decompression?
The following conditions can be addressed with spinal decompression:
- Herniation or disc bulging in the cervical and lumbar region
- Thinning of the discs
- Lumbar radiation that goes through the buttocks and legs
- Chronic pain in the lower back
- Chronic pain in the neck
When you come to Chiropractic Wellness Center, our trained professionals will create a plan to suit your specific needs. We understand that not all patients are the same. Not only will we take X-rays, but we will also consider your past and current health situation to make our determination.
What Type of Machine Is Used for the Process?
There are several types of spinal decompression machines. However, the ones used by the chiropractors at Chiropractic Wellness Center require the patient to lay back on a table with a belt and cord attached to the patient's waist. Adjustments will be made to meet their specific needs. The area will receive about 20 minutes of gentle stretching to align the back and remove pressure from the discs.
