How Does Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Work

How Does Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Work?

Finding treatment for severe back pain can be an uphill battle. At Wellness Chiropractic Center in Watertown, we conduct non-surgical spinal decompression therapy to reposition your spine and heal issues such as herniated disks, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. Make an appointment with us to start your healing journey.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

For people who suffer severe back conditions, massage therapy, spinal adjustment, and physical therapy cannot entirely relieve their pain. Our chiropractor, Dr. Brad Wehking, a beneficiary of spinal decompression, recommends spinal decompression therapy for such people. But what exactly is spinal decompression, and how does it work?

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical procedure used to treat pain related to spine disorders. When you visit Wellness Chiropractic Center in Watertown for spinal decompression therapy, you will be taken into one of our chiropractic units. There, our chiropractor will use traction to create negative pressure in specific parts of your spine.

He will gauge your muscle tension and spinal position through the computer and sensor, interchanging between relaxation and distraction to create spaces between your spinal disks (gel-like cushions amid your spine bones). As a result, herniated and bulging disks retract back to their natural position.

The spaces created by spinal decompression also allows blood and nutrients to flow efficiently. This increased circulation prevents inflammation, thus enhancing your healing process. If you have a back problem, you can visit us at Wellness Chiropractor Center in Watertown for proper diagnosis and effective treatment.

How Many Sessions Do I Need to Get Well?

Each person reacts to injuries uniquely. Some patients may feel better after the first session, while others may take several treatment sessions. When you visit our chiropractic center, our chiropractor will conduct a thorough diagnosis of your condition, then create a treatment for you in line with your individual needs. We try to give you the minimum number of treatment sessions, not neglecting the healing process since we understand a lot of movement can also be uncomfortable for your back.

  • Herniated and Bulging Disks
