Do you have lasting back pain, unable to find relief throughout the day? Do you have pain, weakness, or tingling in your legs (sciatica), or a bulging or herniated disc in your low back, or in your neck? Are your spinal joints wearing down, or your nerves being pinched? If you deal with these issues, then nonsurgical spinal decompression may be right for you.
The chiropractors at Flower Mound Chiropractic, use spinal decompression on a regular basis to relieve the pain from bulging or herniated discs. We have a motorized table that works to relieve back pain, disc pain, sciatica, neck pain, and other conditions. Chiropractors use it to gently, slowly, stretch the spine to relieve muscle tension, then gently “pump” to relieve the pressure on your spinal discs (the gel-like cushions between your bones in your spine) and nerves that are along your spine. Over time, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment works to relieve your pain, retract bulging or herniated discs, and works to remove any pinching or compression that may be occurring to nerves in the area that is being treated. The treatment also helps promote the restoration of nutrient-rich fluids into the tissues, as well as water, and oxygen. It can be performed on the low back, or the neck, in our office.
Decompression is performed by having you lie face down, or face-up, on our decompression tables. Your customized treatment is then entered into our computer-controlled units based on your needs, and the treatment lasts 15-20 minutes. These treatments are oftentimes paired with chiropractic adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, and ice or heat. You may require anywhere from 6-24 of these treatments depending on your condition.
