Treat Chronic Pain with Spinal Decompression in Victoria, BC
If you live with severe or chronic neck and low back pain, and are looking for a painless, drug-free, non-invasive treatment, Spinal Decompression may be for you.
Integrated with massage therapy, physiotherapy, chiropractic and other complementary healthcare techniques, Spinal Decompression can help alleviate pain caused by the following conditions:
Pinched nerves in the neck or low back
Post-surgical low back pain
Partially ruptured disc
Arthritis Pain in Neck and Back
Reducing pressure on the spinal discs and joints
Spinal Decompression provides relief to people living with severe back and neck pain by gently reducing the pressure within the spinal discs – the cushions that protect your spinal vertebrae and the joints that rub together with movement.
A “slipped” or herniated, bulging disc can cause intense, disabling pain by pressing against the spinal nerves.
Spinal Decompression: Computer Precision
With Spinal Decompression, spinal vertebrae are slowly and gently separated using a computer-controlled Spinal Decompression table.
As the vertebrae are separated, pressure is slowly reduced within the disc until a vacuum is formed. This vacuum “sucks” the gelatinous center of the disc back inside.
This reduces the disc bulge or herniation and the pressure on the nerve, in turn reducing pain and lack of mobility.
Short, 20-Minute Sessions
Spinal Decompression sessions typically last for about 20 minutes. Most people feel pain relief with as few as 6-12 treatments (left untreated, it can take three to six months or longer to recover from a herniated disc).
It is important to remember that decreasing or subsiding pain does not infer that your discs and spine are healed, so it’s critical that patients stick with the treatment protocol prescribed by their practitioners in order to achieve the full value of the decompression Therapy.
