We treat patients with a variety of ailments. One of the most common injuries we deal with is back pain in all areas. Some patients struggle with reoccurring back pain while others deal with it on a daily basis. When we see patients with lower-back, mid-back, and upper-back pain, we highly recommend decompression therapy. Decompression therapy is designed to reduce pain and release pressure in the nerves and discs in the back.
Understanding Decompression Therapy
Decompression therapy is referred to as “spinal decompression therapy”, which is a non-surgical process that helps to alleviate the pressure on the nerves and spinal. Using gentle modalities we are able to move the spine back into its correct position, which helps to relieve pain, but also gives your entire body improvement in different areas as your posture improves. The treatment is designed to prevent surgery and has been successful in our Salt Lake Physical Medicine office for hundreds of patients.
How Decompression Therapy Works
Spinal modality treatments are only performed by our licensed and experienced chiropractors. The treatment is safe and effective. When you visit our office for spinal manipulation treatment, we begin with a gentle stretching using a traction table that will take place over the course of 10-12 weeks.
During the decompression process, a small vacuum effect is created inside the spinal discs, and the pressure that would typically be on the nerves is removed. The process will aid in relieving pinched nerves, and will improve organ function. The overall spinal decompression process will help to restore your body back to its natural state, allowing you to feel better and move without pain.
