Spinal DecompressionSunrise, FL
Treating any health issues or injuries in the spine will require more than just rest and over-the-counter painkillers. We strive to treat pain at the source instead of only relieving the symptoms. At Town Health & Rehab, we use spinal decompression to help patients receive the treatment and pain relief they need. Without professional care, the injury will only get worse.
Understanding the Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Fortunately, we can use spinal decompression to provide long-term pain relief in the spine. We will take the time to find the source of the pain and listen to the patient’s concerns before customizing the treatment. With spinal decompression, it is possible to help patients deal with lasting back pain that normally hinders their quality of life.
If you are struggling with pain in the spine or other areas of your back, call us to consider spinal decompression today.
The spine is the super-highway of the body. The spine contains nerves, muscles, discs and bones, which spread out to all areas of the body. Due to that, people will begin to experience other symptoms when they are struggling with spinal health issues or injuries. By seeking professional treatment at our practice, we can help patients receive the proper care they need.
Along with that, spinal decompression can help to relieve the pain that tends to prevent people from living life to the fullest. Spinal decompression gently stretches the spine in a non-surgical procedure to help change the position of the spine. Benefits of this treatment can include:
- Achieving pain relief that store-bought medications cannot provide
- Relieving stress on discs in the spine
- Promoting healthy flow of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids to the spine
- Treating pain that can occur from the back to the lower leg
- Treating worn spinal joints and herniated discs
- Receiving customized treatment for the individual patient’s needs
While lifestyle changes can help with one’s overall health and pain relief, it will not necessarily focus on the spine. Following our initial treatment plan, we will instruct the patient on various types of exercises and stretches that can help the patient maintain their pain relief. In order to experience the benefits of spinal decompression, patients will need to attend the appointments and follow the treatment plan.
Symptoms of Spinal Health Issues
Identifying the signs of spinal health issues may not be as simple as some people think. While people will be aware of the pain, they will not believe the issue to be serious and will avoid seeking treatment. The longer an individual puts off treatment, the greater the chance of the condition worsening over time. It is crucial to listen to one’s body and seek professional treatment when a chiropractic issue occurs.
Common symptoms and signs that spinal decompression may be necessary include:
- Back or neck pain that does not go away with rest
- Sciatica symptoms continuing down the leg
- Pain from worn spinal joints
- Bulging or herniated discs in the spine
- Receiving a spinal injury
- Having degenerative disc disease or another condition
An example is someone sustaining an injury from an auto accident or while playing a sport. Even if there is not too much immediate pain, it is crucial to seek professional treatment. When people do not, the pain will slowly get worse. Other people will have spinal pain from slouching too much or sitting at a desk during work for eight hours a day.
Spinal Decompression Treatment
We can help determine the cause of the pain and recommend the most effective course of action with treatment. If spinal decompression is the most effective treatment for the patient’s condition, then we will go over the details before we begin. During spinal decompression therapy, the patient will wear comfortable clothing and lay on a table.
We will fit the patient with a harness around the patient’s pelvis and abdomen. The table is controlled by a computer that helps to stretch the spine out. The appointments will last around 30 to 45 minutes. In some cases, we may schedule around 20 to 28 appointments over the span of five to seven weeks. This will depend on the needs of the patient and their overall condition.
By stretching the spine, we can help put relief on the discs between the spine. This will help to relieve the pain and encourage proper flow of water, oxygen and nutrients that discs need for healing. If you are in need of chiropractic treatment, give us a call and schedule an appointment today. We can help you find lasting relief to live life to the fullest.
