Who Needs Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy has become a popular treatment option for people suffering from various spinal problems. Lakes Chiropractic in Brainerd provides non-surgical, non-invasive therapy designed to relieve pressure on the spinal discs and nerves and promote healing. But who needs spinal decompression therapy? Let's take a closer look.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

First, it's important to understand what spinal decompression therapy is and how it works. This therapy involves the use of a specially designed table that gently stretches the spine, creating negative pressure that promotes the retraction or repositioning of herniated or bulging discs. The therapy also helps to promote the flow of oxygen, water, and nutrients to the affected area, which can speed up the healing process.

Who Can Benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

So, who can benefit from spinal decompression therapy? Our skilled practitioners at Lakes Chiropractic typically recommend it for people suffering from conditions like herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. These conditions can cause chronic pain, limited mobility, and other symptoms that can significantly impact a person's quality of life.

Spinal decompression therapy is also ideal for people who want to avoid surgery or have already tried other treatment options without success. Surgery can be costly, invasive, and come with a long recovery time. Spinal decompression therapy, on the other hand, is non-invasive, relatively painless, and requires no downtime.

Additionally, spinal decompression therapy is a safe treatment option for most people. It is a low-risk therapy that has few side effects. Your Lakes Chiropractic specialist can explain more about this therapy and if it could be right for you. Spinal decompression therapy typically requires multiple 20- to 45-minute sessions. The number of sessions you need depends on your condition and response to treatment.
