What Is Non-Sugical Spinal Decompression In Medway?

Spinal Decompression is a fantastic treatment option that gives patients relief from a variety of spinal conditions. Contact our Medway chiropractic clinic today to schedule an appointment.

It is a non-invasive type of axial vertebral decompression that utilizes computer technology to gently pull the spine apart taking pressure off the discs, joints, and nerves. It has a built-in feedback sensor that can detect each patient's tolerance, pain levels, and muscular tension, so it knows when to pull more and when to relax in order to achieve optimal results.

To understand how spinal decompression therapy can provide relief for back pain, it is important to understand the basic function of intervertebral discs. Intervertebral discs act as shock absorbers throughout the spine, keeping separation between the neighboring vertebrae or back bones as we walk and move. As we age and with certain activities, these discs began to lose fluid, resulting in less space between the surrounding vertebrae. This loss in space often allows the vertebrae above and below to put increased pressure on local nerves, resulting in pain.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is an affordable, nonsurgical, and safe alternative for neck and back conditions without the use of drugs, needles, or surgery.

  • Facet Joint problems
  • Radiating pain down arms or legs
  • Discogenic pain
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Post-Surgical pain (excluding spinal fusion)

What Is The Treatment Protocol?

Prior to beginning a series of Spinal Decompression, patients will be thoroughly examined by Dr. Taylor and often digital x-rays will be taken. This information helps us to understand the underlining condition of the spine, which spinal discs are compressed, and which treatment protocol will give us best results.

Most often spinal decompression will be combined with chiropractic adjustments, which together, addresses both the spinal misalignment along with the disc health and nerve pressure. This two-prong approach provides the fastest and longest lasting results and is the best conservative protocol you can possibly do to get the spine in as best shape possible.

While each patient’s condition varies, the standard initial protocol for Decompression Therapy is anywhere from 12-24 sessions over 8-12 weeks. Some conditions will require more visits, more frequently; while other conditions require more frequent visits initially then decrease in frequency over time. Each treatment lasts approximately 15 minutes.

On each visit, the patient remains clothed and lies face up comfortably on a motorized table. There is a harness that secures the patient to the decompression table as a pulling type force is applied gently to the spine. There is a series of alternating decompression and relaxation cycles, for an individual treatment time of approximately 15 minutes. The patient typically does not feel pain during or after the decompression visit, although they can feel stretching and lengthening of the spine. As the unit decompresses the spine to the appropriate level, fluids which supply nutrients to the discs are allowed to return. With increased fluid and blood flow to the discs throughout the damaged area of the spine, the discs are allowed the best opportunity to return to their normal shape and form, providing relief to compressed nerves and other surrounding structures. This process is similar to what astronauts experience in space as gravity is reduced.
