At Shadowood Chiropractic Center, our chiropractor is committed to naturally managing pain and enhancing our patient’s overall health. While chiropractic care is the core foundation of our practice, we offer many complementary therapies, including spinal decompression in Boca Raton, for enhanced pain management. Spinal decompression therapy is a cutting-edge technique that relieves compression in the spine, which naturally relieves our patients’ pain.
Spinal decompression is an advanced, non-surgical treatment technique used for relieving pain associated with sciatica, herniated discs, ruptured and bulging discs, and spinal stenosis. It is also effective for helping patients who struggle with pain following failed back surgery.
During treatment, patients lie on the decompression table. Comfortable pads support the body as patients are gently strapped to the table. Utilizing a sophisticated computerized system, precise movements to the table will gently traction the spine, decompressing the vertebrae. These slow, precise movements place negative pressure on the spinal discs, which allows these discs to return to their proper alignment. While the movements may seem imperceptible during the treatment session, over time these small changes will add up to significant pain relief.
In addition to decompressing the spine, our computerized treatment system also promotes the flow of nutrient-rich fluids inside a damaged disc. This gentle pumping action helps to counteract the effects of disc degeneration and is an important part of the healing process.
Each treatment session is typically 15 to 30 minutes. Treatments are relaxing and gentle. Depending on a patient’s specific pain management needs, some individuals achieve long-lasting relief after just a few sessions, while others may need several weeks of therapy. Spinal decompression therapy and chiropractic adjustments complement one another. Our patients find that together, these treatments provide enhanced pain relief.
Our chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella recommends spinal decompression therapy because it is a patient-proven treatment that effectively relieves chronic back pain without the need for surgery or medication. While prescription painkillers can provide immediate relief for acute pain, these medications are not a long-term pain management solution. Medication only dulls the brain’s ability to perceive pain; once a medication wears off, the pain will return. Decompression therapy and chiropractic adjustments both address the underlying mechanical misalignment that is responsible for pain. This approach not only relieves pain, but also supports the body’s internal healing process.
Spinal decompression therapy is a revolutionary treatment that helps Boca Raton back pain patients live a full, active life. Together with chiropractic care, decompression therapy provides enhanced pain relief and supports a patient’s whole body health during the injury recovery process.
If you are new to spinal decompression in Boca Raton, it’s natural to have questions about this treatment process. Dr. DellaBella is happy to answer any of these questions and discuss whether spinal decompression treatment is the right choice for your pain management needs.
