Our chiropractor, here at Surfside Chiropractic in Myrtle Beach, offers spinal decompression therapy, which is also known as nonsurgical decompression. It is a holistic treatment option that does not involve the use of any medications or invasive procedures.
Nonsurgical decompression therapy can help alleviate back and neck pain. It is performed on a decompression table that uses a pulley system to apply a specific force to certain vertebrae, which creates a negative pressure in the spine and increases the spaces between the vertebrae.
Decompression therapy is primarily used to treat herniated discs, but it can also be used to help alleviate pain caused by pinched nerves and posterior facet syndrome. When decompression therapy is used to treat herniated discs, the spaces around the discs are increased. This gives the disc the space it needs to slowly refill with fluid and retract.
Pinched nerves occur any time a soft tissue or bone puts pressure on a nerve root. This can occur due to a herniated disc, arthritis, sciatica or another inflammatory condition. Gently stretching the spine with nonsurgical decompression can help alleviate the pressure on your nerve roots.
Posterior facet syndrome occurs due to worn spinal joints. Decompression therapy can help alleviate the pressure on the joints and may help reduce the associated stiffness.
Spinal decompression sessions with our Myrtle Beach chiropractor are performed on a specially designed decompression table. A belt is placed around your waist, and your treatment protocol is input into the integrated computer system. The treatment is not painful and usually lasts no more than 45 minutes, and there is no recovery time needed after your appointment.
To schedule an appointment to see if decompression therapy would help alleviate your back pain, contact us at 843-212-7821. We are currently offering free new patient consultations.
