Spinal Decompression Therapy at Alpha Pro Wellness
Misalignments in the vertebrae can negatively impact the musculoskeletal system. That's why our chiropractor works to realign the vertebrae and reduce pressure or inflammation along the spinal column for natural relief. We offer various therapies to treat spinal issues. However, the most effective treatment we use for misalignments is spinal decompression therapy. Our team at Alpha Pro Wellness in Decatur and Atlanta can treat your misalignments with spinal decompression therapy.
What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression is a painless, non-surgical chiropractic treatment that combats the effects of gravity and spinal compression by using a traction table to help realign the spine. This therapy is most often used to treat lower back pain but can be a great alternative to surgery for many spinal conditions.
How Does My Chiropractic Physician Use Spinal Decompression?
A specially designed traction device is used to slowly stretch and lengthen the back's muscles, ligaments, and joints without causing any pain or discomfort. This process is non-invasive and applies pressure to specific areas of the spine. Our chiropractor will have you lie on our specialized table for this procedure. After we connect you to the device, it will gently pull on your spine in opposite directions. This reduces tension in the spine by realigning the vertebrae, causing the discs to no longer irritate the back.
What Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Treat?
The back isn't the only body part that can benefit from spinal decompression. Spinal decompression therapy is often used to relieve back, hip, or leg pain. Spinal decompression will treat musculoskeletal conditions like disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, neuropathy, spinal stenosis, and pregnancy-related pain. Spinal decompression is an effective treatment that leaves the patient feeling refreshed and free from pressure or pain. If you suffer from chronic back pain or a musculoskeletal disorder, we will set up a treatment program that combines spinal decompression with other forms of therapy for optimal relief.
Is Spinal Decompression Safe?
Although spinal decompression is non-invasive, only a fully trained chiropractor with the proper experience should perform it to ensure that you are receiving this specialized care. The combination of special stretching and decompression techniques helps create space in your spine for nerves to restore function while at the same time reducing swelling and pressure caused by herniated or ruptured discs. Spinal decompression is generally well tolerated, and many patients experience almost immediate relief after a session.
