Spinal Decompression Therapy in Chicago

herniated disc treatment

ReAlign Chiropractic, PC understands that there is nothing pleasant about chronic back or neck pain. Those who suffer from this type of long-term pain often find that every area of their lives is impacted by the pain. This pain limits activities, such as sports, work, and even your ability to tend to daily chores around the house.

Additionally, when suffering from chronic pain like this, you will often have difficulty concentrating on anything other than the pain you’re in at the moment. Do these things sound familiar? If so, you are in the right place.

At ReAlign Chiropractic, PC, we offer spinal decompression therapy as an alternative to risky, painful surgeries with extensive recovery periods. Spinal decompression is a non-surgical spinal treatment that utilizes motorized traction to relieve neck and back pain.

How does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression works by gently stretching your spine. The process of stretching the spine relieves the pressure on your spinal disks, the gel-like cushions that are located between the bones in the spine. The purpose of the therapy is to encourage the bulging or herniated disks to retract so that the pressure on the nerves and other spinal structures is relieved. Once that happens, the movement of water, oxygen, and other fluids filled with nutrients return to the disks so the healing process begins.

At ReAlign Chiropractic, PC, our chiropractor has used spinal decompression therapy to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
  • Back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Sciatica

  • Bulging disks

  • Herniated disks

  • Degenerative disk disease

  • Worn spinal joints

  • Injured/Diseased spinal nerve roots

This type of treatment may be used alone or in conjunction with other types of treatments designed to maximize efficiency and results. Our chiropractor will work with you to create a unique treatment plan designed to meet your specific pain management and relief needs.

What to Expect from a Spinal Decompression Appointment

You will remain fully clothed throughout your spinal decompression appointment. One of our helpful assistants will help to arrange a harness around your pelvis and your trunk. You will lay face-up on a special treatment table in a private room. The assistant will then operate the table according to the protocol prescribed by your chiropractor via the computer.

Other treatments that may be used in conjunction with your spinal decompression in an effort to bolster the effects of the treatment include cold therapy and electrical stimulation.

You don’t have to keep suffering in silence. Nor do you need to go under the knife in order to find real, lasting, relief from your pain. We can help you create a plan of action that is designed to get you back on your feet without surgical intervention.
