Charleston Chiropractor – Spinal Decompression Treatment

If you suffer from severe back pain and are looking for a non-surgical method of pain relief, chiropractic spinal decompression treatments are an effective therapeutic method for alleviating pain and restoring your normal quality of life. In the past, individuals struggling with chronic back pain had limited options such as, pain medications which merely masked back pain symptoms, or invasive medical procedures that offered no guaranteed results.

Is Spinal Decompression Right for You?

Numerous reports have revealed spinal decompression therapy to be an effective method for treating back pain with one specific study showing that 86% of patients with disc problems achieved good results and 90-100% reported excellent results after several treatments. Stone Spine & Disc chiropractors offer in-depth consultations and a complete physical evaluation from our Charleston clinic to help you determine whether spinal decompression treatments are right for you.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

When used in chiropractic care for back pain relief, spinal decompression is a traction-based therapy that works by gently stretching the spine to relieve back or leg pain. Using technologically advanced equipment, the procedure is aimed at carefully separating the vertebrae which slowly reduces pressure on spinal discs and compressed nerves. The stretching allows bulging spinal discs and surrounding areas to naturally receive essential oxygen and nutrients that facilitate healing, relieve pain and ultimately, restore mobility.

Spinal Treatment

Spinal decompression treatments conducted at our Charleston clinic have been used to treat a range of back and neck pain problems including: sciatica, bulging and herniated discs, degenerative spinal joints, injured spinal nerves, and certain chronic disc diseases. Stone Spine & Disc chiropractic care treatment plans include a range of noninvasive low-risk pain relief methods for a range of spinal problems that frequently manifest as numbness and tingling in the physical extremities, including migraine headaches.

What Happens During a Spinal Decompression Session?

Patients remain fully clothed and lie down on a specially constructed spinal decompression table that includes an adjustable harness for the hips located at the foot of the table. Certain parts of the decompression table remain fixed and other areas are flexible to allow for traction as well as comfort. Depending on your particular condition and the area to be treated, our Stone Spine & Disc chiropractor may require patients to lie face down or face up during spinal decompression treatment. Patients report little or no discomfort during therapy sessions with many experiencing immediate relief as the spine is gently stretched. Treatments typically last from 45 to 60 minutes with patients reporting improvement after several weeks of treatment.
