Acute and chronic back pain can be debilitating and severely lower someone's quality of life. Back pain associated with spinal issues and herniated discs is especially painful, and there are limited options when it comes to treatment.
Fortunately, Hanes Total Health Care Center in Chillicothe, OH, can help treat back pain using natural and non-invasive techniques. One of the most effective treatments is spinal decompression therapy. We offer spinal decompression as well as other chiropractic treatments for fast and effective relief.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a method of gently stretching the spine using a traction table and state-of-the-art chiropractic technology. Spinal decompression can help treat a variety of ailments, including:
- Herniated discs
- Back pain
- Neck pain
During a spinal decompression session, the patient lies down on a traction table. Using computer technology, our chiropractors know exactly how to adjust the table and the duration of the session in order to stretch the spine and alleviate pressure on the affected discs.
How Long Are Spinal Decompression Sessions?
Spinal decompression sessions last anywhere between 30 minutes to 45 minutes. The length of time changes from patient to patient, and everyone will require a different number of treatment sessions. You might only need spinal decompression treatment for one to two months, while other people might take as long as three months.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractors can determine if spinal decompression is right for you during your first consultation. After assessing the causes and severity of your pain, our team will create a treatment plan that may include spinal decompression. Patients with osteoarthritis, certain tumors, prior spinal injuries, spinal implants, or a history of aneurysms may not be good candidates for spinal decompression. Our chiropractors will be able to help you determine what other treatments are available to reduce pain. We also offer treatment options for back pain like:
- Manual adjustments
- Spinal adjustments
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Massage therapy
- Trigger point therapy
- Soundwave therapy
- Electrical stimulation
- Heat and cold therapy
- Physical therapy
- Dry needling
Regardless of the cause of your pain, our chiropractors will work to provide a treatment plan that helps you get back to living your best life.
