Chiropractic Care for Your Spine
At Dr. Rod Merritt in Hilliard, we offer various spinal treatments. We offer spinal manipulation, which is the treatment most often associated with chiropractors. We also provide several other spinal treatments, most notably spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is a safe procedure that can be completed with minimal pain. This treatment method is effective for herniated and bulging disks, which are difficult for traditional doctors to treat. Read on to learn more about the spinal decompression that we offer at Atlantic Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Chesapeake.
Spinal Decompression Treatment
Our chiropractor performs spinal decompression treatment using a specially made spinal decompression machine. This machine gently stretches your spine, which improves circulation to the spinal disks. This improved circulation allows the spinal disks to heal properly from any injuries or conditions. Spinal decompression treatment shouldn't take more than 15 to 20 minutes per session. You may need to have multiple spinal decompression therapy sessions to have the maximum amount of relief. Our chiropractor will discuss your spinal decompression treatment plan with you before your first spinal decompression treatment.
Conditions Treated with Spinal Decompression
The primary condition treated with spinal decompression is herniated or bulging disks. Herniated disks occur when the disk bulges out of its space in the spinal column. This can occur due to an injury or misuse over time. The spinal decompression gives these herniated disks the space they need for their circulation, which ensures that this injury has the chance to heal. Traditional medicine generally involves pain killers and perhaps surgery if the condition is severe enough. Some traditional doctors are starting to offer spinal decompression treatment, but chiropractors are experts in this area, as we have trained in spinal medicine. We also have years of experience in providing patients with this treatment.
