Searching for a spinal decompression chiropractor near you? Chronic Care of Richmond’s chiropractic care services offers nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy as an alternative to traditional medicine methods that rely on medication to mask the pain, or surgery that requires significant recovery time.

Is Spinal Decompression Right For Me?

Spinal decompression may be the right choice if you experience:

  • Chronic back or neck pain
  • Sciatic pain
  • Bulging or herniated disks
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Injured or damaged spinal nerves
  • Spinal stenosis
  • And more...

The best way to determine if you’re a candidate and can benefit from chiropractic spinal decompression therapy is to visit a specialist like those at Chronic Care of Richmond.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive procedure designed to reduce pressure in the spine, increase blood flow between the spinal disks and encourage the body’s natural healing process.

Lasting lower back pain can take over your life, and finding relief can take over one’s thoughts. Gently stretching the spine with spinal decompression changes the force and position of the spine, taking the pressure off the spinal disks.

Spinal disks are the gel-like cushions between the vertebrae in your spine. When compressed, any bulging disks are aggravated by the lack of space to expand or move back into position.

Taking the pressure off of spinal disks by visiting a decompression chiropractor can help promote the body to heal by encouraging the proper flow of water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids in the body. For bulging disks, it creates negative pressure to give the disks space to retract into place.

During spinal decompression, a patient will typically be fitted with a harness and lay face down or up on a specially designed, computer-controlled table. The chiropractor will be able to tailor and fit the table and appointment to meet your specific needs.

A visit to a decompression chiropractor usually lasts no longer than 30 minutes. For the treatment to be most effective, patients should expect to have several return visits.

A spinal decompression appointment can help relieve symptoms originating from the nerves or spinal cord, like:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness

Benefits of Spinal Decompression for Pain

Spinal decompression is a gentle and non-invasive procedure that requires little to no recovery time. As an alternative to traditional pain relief methods, some individuals may wonder how beneficial it can be.

By stimulating the body to encourage healing itself, spinal decompression therapy can be beneficial to those looking to avoid surgery or pain medication.

In addition to relieving chronic back pain, spinal decompression can help with:

  • Improved Posture

    Many back pain issues begin with poor posture or incorrect lifting that misaligns the spine. A series of chiropractic spinal decompression appointments can dramatically assist with improving posture and setting a solid foundation to avoid future issues.

  • Instant Relief

    Since spinal decompression stretches and helps to align the spine, many patients can see - and feel - results after just one appointment. Taking the pressure off the spine can provide instant relief, but long-term results will require more than one appointment.

Finding a chiropractor near you and receiving spinal decompression therapy is greatly beneficial to anyone who needs instant relief without a long recovery.

Does Spinal Decompression Really Work?

Spinal decompression therapy is a well-studied form of treatment with a positive success rate. The general consensus is a success rate of between 71-81%, with many patients reporting a significant reduction in pain by the end of their treatments.

Today’s spinal decompression therapy sessions at Chronic Care of Richmond use cutting-edge technology and professional equipment to provide increased mobility and range of motion. It is a safe and researched treatment with proven benefits. Those with bulging disks or other back pain can find relief through methods other than surgery. Chronic Care of Richmond often combines spinal decompression with other therapies to provide a whole-body treatment meant to provide lasting results and treat the source of pain.

Recovery From Spinal Decompression

With traditional medicine and surgery, the recovery process is always a concern. Surgery carries the risk of infection, poor results and long recovery periods. Prescription pain medications, typically prescribed post-surgery, are habit-forming and carry the risk of addiction.

As an alternative, visiting a spinal decompression chiropractor provides a natural alternative that doesn’t require any recovery time - and can give instant results. Nonsurgical decompression therapy is non-invasive, which means you’ll be able to walk out the door right after your appointment.
