Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression: Is It Right for You?

By January 18, 2018July 14th, 2023No Comments

How Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Banishes Back Pain

Spinal decompression is one of the effective, non-invasive chiropractic back pain treatments available at our practice In Kennesaw. Our chiropractor may include decompression therapy as part of your custom-designed treatment plan to treat diseases, injuries and conditions that create pressure on your spinal cord. If the spinal bones are misaligned in any way, or the discs that cushion your vertebra are no longer functioning properly, you may benefit from state-of-the-art spinal decompression treatment from our experienced chiropractors in Kennesaw. Before considering back surgery, such as laminectomy or microdiscectomy, see our chiropractor for effective, natural treatment.

What is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression, like all other chiropractic therapies, is a natural and non-invasive treatment that often provides a viable alternative to going through irreversible back surgery or other drastic medical treatments. Decompression therapy from our Kennesaw chiropractor allows the spine to stretch and elongate, reducing pressure on the individual vertebra. This form of back traction allows your spinal bones to realign naturally–to relieve pain, improve range of motion, increase flexibility and more.

How Does the Chiropractor Perform Decompression Treatment?

During spinal decompression therapy at our Kennesaw chiropractic office, you will be positioned comfortably on our motorized traction table, which is set and calibrated by our chiropractor for your treatment. Average treatment length is 30 minutes, during which time your spine is gently stretched and relaxed as the table vibrates. Successful decompression treatment typically requires a series of treatments over several weeks, which may be accompanied by other types of chiropractic care, massage, physical therapy and more. Talk to our chiropractor to determine which specific chiropractic treatments are right for you.
