Spinal Decompression

Reap the benefits of spinal decompression therapy in Crestview, FL, after working with Dr. Jessica Schofield of Crestview Chiropractic.

What Benefits Does Spinal Decompression Provide?

Many chiropractic techniques involve stretching and mobilizing the spine. Chiropractors rely heavily on those motions because they facilitate fast and effective recovery. Spinal decompression also involves stretching the spine, which could be what you need to eliminate some nagging conditions.

For those unfamiliar with spinal decompression, it features the chiropractor gently stretching the spine in an effort to generate health benefits for the patient. How does spinal decompression create those health benefits?

Stretching the spine alleviates the pressure on the spinal discs. If you have a condition known as degenerative disc disease, simply easing the pressure off some of your spinal discs can already make a big difference. The pain associated with that condition may start to disappear not long after you begin spinal decompression therapy.

The gentle stretching that takes place during spinal decompression can also have a positive effect on your pinched nerves, such as in cases of sciatica. Because the stretching repositions your spine, it can also free up your trapped nerves. You can expect to experience relief after your pinched nerves are freed by spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression is arguably most helpful for treating herniated discs. The negative pressure created by spinal decompression can allow your herniated disc to retract. It also directs nutrients to the injured part of your body and facilitates faster recovery. Back pain, muscle weakness, numbness, and other symptoms caused by your herniated disc should disappear not long after you undergo spinal decompression.

What Happens During Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy is a fairly straightforward procedure. It begins with the patient lying down on a special table. The chiropractor may ask you to either lie face down or face up.

Once you are in the proper position, the chiropractor will start adjusting the computer program that controls the table. After the adjustments are made, the table will begin moving and stretching your spine. This treatment method is completely painless. You should let your chiropractor know if you experience discomfort during the stretching sessions.

Although treatment sessions utilizing spinal decompression do vary, they tend to last around 20 minutes or so. Given how quick each session usually is, you can continue the rest of your day after treatment. Make sure you come back for additional treatment sessions if your chiropractor recommends it. Doing so will allow you to experience the full effects of spinal decompression.
