How does Spinal Decompression work?
Decompression is a spinal treatment that relieves pressure that has built up between discs and nerves by creating a negative pressure within the disc. This negative intra-disc pressure creates a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back inside. This allows the disc to heal by producing new cells and tissue and increasing disc height. Light therapy may be used in conjunction to a spinal decompression treatment. It helps address painful muscle spasms and injured tissues. This FDA cleared device is used to painlessly penetrate deep into the muscles to accelerate energy production resulting in faster repair and increased pain reduction.
In order for the procedure to provide long lasting results, the treatment protocol is typically a minimal of 20-24 visits for a low back case and 10-14 visits for a neck case. Ideally, your spinal decompression therapy care plan can be completed within 6-12 weeks with Progressive’s Chiropractor, Dr. Melissa Arnold and staff. Each 30-60 minute session may consist of a gentle chiropractic adjustment, light therapy, cold laser, heat or ice therapy and/or electro therapy in addition to the highly-specialized, digital spinal decompression table that will apply a specific gentle stretch on the involved discs.
