Spinal Decompression

At Advanced Pain Relief Clinic, our chiropractor in Kitchener and Owen Sound is dedicated to providing patients with natural, non-invasive, and drug-free treatment for any number of injuries and spinal conditions. Our multi-disciplinary practice is made up not only of experienced chiropractors, but massage therapists, nutritionists, kinesiologists, and other professionals. Ultimately, our goal is to help you achieve improved health and wellness without the need for invasive procedures or drugs.

We offer a wide range of services and treatments in our office, including spinal decompression. We often recommend this therapy in conjunction with other services, such as chiropractic techniques or massage therapy.

Conditions Treated With Spinal Decompression Therapy

Specifically, spinal decompression refers to a therapy technique that involves creating negative pressure along the spinal column. This, in turn, helps to relieve pain caused by compressed discs and vertebrae by allowing discs to return to their proper placement along the spinal column and relieving pressure on nerves as well. This, in turn, can provide relief from pain and discomfort. Some of the specific conditions that can be effectively treated with spinal decompression include:

  • herniated or bulging discs
  • sciatic nerve pain (sciatica)
  • degenerative disc disease

This non-surgical treatment is done as a part of our physiotherapy services, but it is often used in conjunction with chiropractic treatment methods as well.

If you suffer from any of these spinal or disc conditions, we recommend scheduling a physiotherapy appointment with our team. This evaluation will help us to determine the best course of treatment for you and whether you're a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy.

What to Expect From Spinal Decompression Therapy

The idea of having your spine decompressed may seem a little daunting, but the procedure is quick and painless. The length of your session can vary depending on how much decompression your spine needs, and in some cases, it may be necessary to have more than one therapy session done for optimal results. During your spinal decompression appointment, you will be strategically placed on a mechanical drop table; this motorized table will then go to work at lengthening your spine gradually and carefully while your progress is monitored by our experienced team.

Many patients report that they feel some relief from pain and symptoms immediately following the appointment, but it may take multiple sessions for you to achieve optimal results. And of course, combining your therapy with other treatment techniques will help to optimize your healing. Before your appointment, our team will take the time to answer any questions you may have to ensure that you're 100% comfortable and confident with the procedure.
