When you have a back or neck injury, damaged discs in your lower, mid or upper spine can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. This can lead to pain that does not go away, even with medication or other conventional treatment methods. Our Orlando chiropractor can help you find pain relief with non-surgical spinal decompression.
Non-surgical spinal decompression helps take pressure off of affected nerves, which relieves pain, tingling and other symptoms. This form of treatment involves the use of a decompression table that is allows our chiropractor to gently stretch your spine. These stretching movements place spinal discs under negative pressure, resulting in an effect that works much like a vacuum. This negative pressure helps relieve pressure on affected nerves. In the case of bulging discs, it also helps push disc material back to its normal place inside these discs for proper healing.
At Lions Chiropractic & Injury, we offer spinal decompression for those who have bulging discs, herniated discs, sciatica and other spinal injuries. This treatment has been shown to provide more effective pain relief for these conditions than physical therapy, traction and spinal manipulation. We use a Kennedy Neural-Flex Decompression Table, which features a computerized head, to achieve these results. The Kennedy Neural-Flex Table allows patients to be moved to different positions for more precise treatment.
Our spinal decompression method is typically a relaxing experience for many patients. Although it does offer effective results, we might also recommend other forms of treatment, such as chiropractic adjustments or muscle stimulation, depending on the severity of your condition.
If you have a back or neck injury that causes ongoing pain, contact our Orlando chiropractor at 407-277-0046 to schedule an appointment or to learn more about spinal decompression.
