When you’re in pain due to a herniated disk or other excruciating injuries, it can be the only thing on your mind, and it can be easy to want to rush into surgery or get that refill at the pharmacy. However, there is a more natural solution that you can try before you go to extreme measures. Here we look at the benefits of nonsurgical spinal decompression, what expect before and during your treatments, and what you can expect from chiropractic care.
What benefits to expect from spinal decompression
There are many advantages of spinal decompression therapy, and a chiropractor will be able to go into detail about both the risks and benefits of the treatments. Pain relief is one of the primary reasons that people seek out the assistance of a chiropractor for this nonsurgical procedure. Here are a few benefits other than pain relief you’ll get to enjoy.
First, it’s safer than surgery. Going under the knife for back pain can be very risky and doesn’t have to be your first option. Trying a natural method first will not only be effective, but it can save you from future injuries that could result from surgery.
Second, you’ll be saving money and time when you choose a nonsurgical method for spinal manipulation. Recovery time after surgery can be long and involved, and if you aren’t able to work, then it can be hard to pay for the medical expenses. Chiropractic care for spinal decompression is a less expensive treatment that can be done in a timely manner.
Third, you’ll have increased energy. As you continue with your treatments, you’ll start to feel pain relief, and this will allow you to focus on what’s important again. Recovery takes time for the more severe injuries, but if you keep up with your treatments and follow the overall health advice of your chiropractor, you’ll enjoy it as your body strengthens and improves.
What to expect before the treatments
Before you begin treatments for spinal decompression, we have to make sure that you’re a good candidate. We’ll take a thorough evaluation of your medical health history and completely review x-rays and scans. We’ll also take the time to listen to your particular goals and pains to get a better understanding of what you hope to achieve with the sessions. We have your overall health in mind when we do this evaluation because we don’t just want to take the pain away for a little bit, we want to get to the root of the condition and start to correct the issue from there. This is a positive move in the right direction for the future of your health.
Next, we’ll create an individualized spinal decompression plan for you. No two injuries are going to be identical, and each will require a certain amount of time and attention to ensure results are made. Some people will only need a few sessions to see results while others with more complicated and server pains will need longer and more treatments. Once you have a plan in place, you can schedule your first appointment.
What to expect at the session
When you come to your first treatment for spinal decompression, you will lie on a computerized table, fully clothed and with a harness that fits comfortably around your pelvis. The doctor will then control the motorized traction that gently works to strengthen your spine and relieve back pain. This will reduce the pressure you have on your spinal disks.
Spinal decompression has helped relieve pain in people with sciatica, herniated or bulging disks, injured nerve roots, and much more. Some people aren’t comfortable with surgery, or have had surgery to find that it wasn’t effective, so they turn to nonsurgical spinal decompression because of the natural benefits it lends to those in pain.
