Disc Decompression Chiropractic care

Disc decompression therapy in Salt Lake City is one type of therapy offered at Creekside Chiropractic which has the potential to deliver tremendous relief, especially if you’re a person suffering from a particular type of back pain caused by herniated or bulging discs. Whenever the discs of your spine have deviated from their normal position or have become compressed, they may exert pressure on the nerves in the surrounding region which causes considerable pain.

This decompression therapy is a kind of traction therapy which stretches out your spine, and encourages the discs to resume their normal position. When the discs are back in place, that relieves all the pressure on the nerves in the area, and your pain immediately begins to dissipate. This type of therapy can be used in tandem with spinal manipulation to bring about very effective relief for people experiencing back pain.

Many of the patients who take advantage of this kind of therapy have sustained some kind of sports injury or other trauma which has caused spinal discs to become dislocated or out of position. After going through disc decompression therapy, many patients experience complete relief and are able to resume all their normal daily activities with no pain or discomfort.

Benefits of disc decompression therapy

A non-invasive treatment with numerous benefits

Most patients will feel a number of different benefits after having gone through this decompression therapy, and will feel completely rejuvenated and ready to resume their normal lifestyle. Here are some of the most commonly experienced benefits:

  • improves your preparedness for spinal manipulation therapy
  • when pressure is relieved from the discs, it also relieves pressure on nervous tissue in the area, which results in a dissipation of pain
  • discs regain their normal form and are once again fully functional
  • when discs and nerves are free of pressure and fully healed, the patient will generally feel much more flexible and will have greater range of motion.

What to expect during disc decompression therapy

Creekside Chiropractic takes care to make sure you are comfortable

When your disc decompression therapy session begins, you will be seated. Then a harness will be placed around your hips so that you can remain in place without moving around. Using a pulley system your harness is pulled on and gently your spine will get stretched out.

As individual discs have pressure on them relieved, the flow of nutrients, fluids, and oxygen can rush in again, and your spinal discs will begin to recover their normal good state of health. If any nervous tissue has been pressured or blocked, this pressure will also be relieved, and the sensation of pain that you have been feeling will begin to fade away.

Patients do not feel any pain when undergoing this type of therapy, only a very gentle stretching sensation. This is the process that actually provides all the relief that you will ultimately feel. You can expect that each session will last somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes, and the number of treatments that you will have to undergo will depend on the severity of your condition, as well as what your objectives are.

Disc decompression therapy is a treatment which is recommended for patients who have experienced herniated discs or bulging discs, and in some cases discs which have been subjected to degenerative modifications. Anyone who has experienced a pinched nerve will also benefit by undergoing this kind of therapy, since it is extremely effective at relieving pressure on the nerves.
