There are many factors that contribute to back pain, from physical injuries to the effects of aging. Since the back is such a complex structure, your pain could stem from many different problems, including alignment issues to disc herniation or degeneration. It’s important to get evaluated in order to determine the nature of your pain since many back issues get worse over time if they are not treated.
We are very experienced with helping patients overcome headaches and migraines. To do this, we start by determining the root cause, which is often due to a misalignment of the spine and weakening of muscles in the neck. Our treatments often include a combination of chiropractic care and physical therapy to help realign your spine and strengthen and retrain the muscles of your neck.
Since sciatica can have both benign and serious causes, it’s important that you seek medical care as soon as possible. Much of the time, however, sciatica does have structural causes. In these instances, we have a great deal of success in helping our patients overcome their sciatic pain through a range of natural and effective therapies.
Spinal decompression is a special treatment that creates negative pressure inside the disc. This causes herniations to be pulled back into place and allows blood and nutrients to flow into the injured area. This facilitates your body’s natural healing process and relieves pain.
Decompression is achieved through a combination of techniques including spinal positioning and a varying degree and intensity of force. It is a completely safe and comfortable procedure.
Spinal decompression is a powerful tool we use to help people overcome their back pain. If you’ve been told you need surgery but you want to avoid such an invasive treatment, or if you’ve had little response to conservative treatments, spinal decompression might be right for you. However, it’s not right for everyone, including those with recent spinal fractures, surgical fusion or metallic hardware, surgically repaired aneurysms, infection of the spine, and/or moderate to severe osteoporosis. Our highly trained medical staff can evaluate your condition and determine the best course of treatment.
Typically patients remain on the spinal disc decompression unit for 30-45 minutes a day, every day for the first two weeks, three times a week for the following two weeks, and two times a week for the final two weeks of treatment. Our medical staff will evaluate your unique condition and create a treatment plan designed to help you overcome your back pain once and for all.
