Non-Invasive Spinal Decompression with Our Chiropractor in Jupiter, FL
Have you been told you have a herniated disc or bulging disc? Do you get sharp shooting pain radiating down your leg? If so, you may be able to benefit from non-invasive spinal decompression, a service we offer at La Ruffa Chiropractic and Sports Rehab. Our chiropractor in Jupiter has advanced training in this safe, surgery-free, and effective technique that can heal tissues and relieve pain.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression can be done surgically and non-surgically. When it's done surgically, surgeons must operate on your spine to modify or remove structures impinging nerves. These surgeries, like any procedure, carry increased risks of bleeding and other complications, require a lot of downtime, are expensive, and in many cases don't work!
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a technique offered by our Jupiter chiropractor. Here's how it works:
- The patient lies in a comfortable position, usually supine, on a specialized table. This table contains a motorized track and bolsters that applies gentle and intermittent traction (pulling) forces on the patient's spine, followed by periods of relaxation.
- This gentle intermittent traction force creates a negative-pressure effect on spinal disc tissues. This pressure attracts healing fluids, oxygen, nutrient, and immune system molecules into the injured disc to accelerate healing. It also can help realign the disc for better disc and joint positioning. Lastly, mechanical traction can alleviate pressure on any injured nerve roots and can also stimulate healing and soothing anti-inflammation.
The overall result: enhanced pain relief, faster tissue healing, and increased effectiveness of other chiropractic services, including exercises and postural re-training! While optimal results can be expected after about four to six weeks of treatment, many of our patients in Jupiter report better function and decreased pain and stiffness after just a few sessions.
