Frequently Asked Questions
What is non-surgical Spinal Decompression?
Spinal Decompression employs a sophisticated approach that gradually lengthens the spine without triggering muscle contractions, ensuring patient comfort throughout the procedure. The technology underpinning this treatment is at the forefront of advancement, with precision-driven computers continuously recalculating and personalizing the therapy to align with each patient's unique spinal curvature.
What can I expect during spinal decompression treatment?
Spinal decompression therapy utilizes a motorized table that carefully stretches and lengthens your spine. This gentle traction creates negative pressure within the discs, potentially reducing pain and alleviating pressure on sensitive nerves.
How does Spinal Decompression help relieve pain?
Between the vertebrae of your spine lie spongy cushions called discs. These gel-like wonders absorb shock and flex with your every move. But time and wear can take their toll, leaving discs vulnerable to damage and degeneration. This, in turn, can bring pain, discomfort, and stiffness that steal your freedom.
When a disc gets hurt, it can bulge or even burst (herniate), pressing on the delicate nerves nestled within your spine. This nerve-pinching can send shooting pains, numbness, tingling, or weakness down your back, legs, arms, or even far-flung corners, depending on where the grumpy nerve lives.
Spinal decompression offers a gentle hand in this tug-of-war. By creating a vacuum-like effect within the disc, it helps ease the pressure on those beleaguered nerves and creates space for the disc to heal. Imagine the table gently stretching and releasing your spine, coaxing the bulging or herniated material back to its rightful place.
This, like magic, can take the pressure off the nerves, melting away pain and other symptoms.
But decompression doesn't stop there. It also acts like a superhero, summoning a flood of oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the injured area, promoting healing and reducing inflammation. In some cases, it might even coax those flattened discs to regain some of their lost height, further easing pressure on the nerves and restoring your spine's happy dance.
So, for many people struggling with back pain caused by disc woes, spinal decompression can be a powerful ally, offering relief without resorting to surgery. It's a chance to reclaim your freedom, one gentle stretch at a time.
What Patients Are Saying
"This was my first visit to American Chiropractic. Everyone was very friendly, from the moment I arrived, to making a future appointment, before I left. Dr Weinzimer was kind, and listened about my areas of concern. He explained how the visit would go, then I went to another room where a hot, moist pack was put over my entire back. After that, he adjusted the areas that had been bothering me. I will be going back for more adjustments. Thank you Dr. Weinzimer and staff for a very good experience. "
