If you are suffering from back pain, neck pain, sciatica or degenerative disc disease, spinal decompression therapy is a revolutionary treatment that can make a significant difference for your pain. This treatment is now available from your Omaha chiropractors at Oakview Medical Building. By addressing the root cause for pain, decompression therapy manages back pain without the need for medication or surgery.
Decompression therapy works by gently tractioning the spine, creating space between the vertebra and relieving spinal compression. During a treatment session, patients lie on a specialized adjustment table. Precise, computerized adjustments traction the spine. This traction action relieves pressure on the nerves for natural pain management. Decompression therapy also delivers nutrient-rich fluids to the inside of damaged discs. These fluids support spinal health. They are essential to counteracting disc degeneration and supporting the body’s natural healing process following
Omaha decompression therapy is effective because this treatment targets the root cause for pain rather than simply “covering up” the pain. For example, if a herniated disc is compressing the sciatic nerve, patients may experience a radiating pain sensation throughout the lower body, including the back, buttocks and legs. As long as this disc continues to place pressure on the sciatic nerve, patients will continue to experience pain. Chiropractic adjustments and decompression therapy relieve this pressure, providing long-lasting pain relief. This is different from medication, which only “numbs” the brain’s perception of pain. When medication wears off, pain returns. In contrast, the benefits of decompression therapy are long-lasting.
Decompression therapy treatment sessions at Oakview Medical Building typically last between 15 and 30 minutes. These sessions are very relaxing; some patients even enjoy a short nap! After a series of 10-12 treatment sessions, patients not only report less pain, but also are able to resume an active lifestyle. Decompression therapy is a natural complement to other back pain relief treatments, including chiropractic adjustments.
If you suffer from back pain that has lasted six or more months, you may be a good candidate for decompression therapy. This treatment is also effective for patients suffering from spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease. If a mechanical misalignment or spinal compression is the cause for your pain, then decompression therapy may be able to help. In order to determine if you are a good candidate for treatment, our Omaha chiropractors require a diagnostic appointment. During this appointment, we will identify the cause and location for your back pain, and determine if decompression treatment can help alleviate this pain.
