At Committed to Health Chiropractic Center, Dr. Paul Hyland uses spinal decompression therapy in Creve Coeur, MO to treat patients with persistent neck and back pain. Using this cutting-edge treatment, our team can help people who want lasting relief from chronic disk pressure and pain without medication or invasive surgery.
Understanding Spinal Decompression
At its core, spinal decompression therapy is a procedure used for generations by chiropractors to gently stretch your spine to take pressure off disks or nerves.
However, technology today makes it possible to use a motorized traction therapy table to make the necessary adjustments to your spine. The table is connected to a computer which is controlled by chiropractors like Dr. Hyland.
What to Expect
When you start receiving regular decompression therapy treatments in Creve Coeur, MO at Committed to Health Chiropractic Center, it will start to slowly alleviate pressure on the discs between your vertebrae. When the pressure begins to ease up, it will increase blood flow to your spine while simultaneously restoring oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids to the discs.
In most cases, you'll need about three treatments a week for a month, depending on the level of your discomfort or any other medical factors that are contributing to your pain.
Contingent upon how well you respond to treatment, you should start to feel pain relief in as little as six sessions. If necessary, our team might recommend a fitness program to help stabilize back muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Is the Treatment Right for Me?
If you suffer from issues such as spinal stenosis, a herniated disc, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, or back and neck pain from sports activities or work-related issues, you're a good candidate for spinal decompression.
However, you may not be a good candidate if your pain is the result of a failed back surgery or a broken vertebrae. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Hyland or your primary care doctor to see if you're a good candidate.
