Vida Chiropractic - Decompression Therapy

Over the years, we’ve delivered countless spinal decompression therapy sessions that has turned around the lives of our clients. Helping people transition out of a life of debilitating spine and neck pain is what motivates and rewards our entire staff. What we find surprising, however, to this very day, is the fact that so few people possess a root understanding of this therapy until they get our facility and enjoy a decompression session for the very first time. We’d like to educate you all today on this still surprisingly unknown and/or understood therapy that can and will change your life.

Decompression Therapy effectively relieves the pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet, and other spinal related syndromes, by reducing the pressure on spinal discs and facet joints through unloading created by distraction and positioning.

It is a highly successful treatment for patients suffering from bulging, herniated, degenerative, or ruptured discs as well as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many failed back surgery cases.

Decompression Therapy begins with a series of sessions typically 3-4 times per week. Each session is approximately 8-12 minutes. During each session, electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, or therapeutic laser may be applied to help relax muscles and promote further healing of injured tissues.

After treatment, your doctor may prescribe specific exercises designed to help you regain proper control and strength of the stabilization muscles which can help create long term benefits.

Clinical studies suggest Decompression Therapy provides a majority of qualified candidates with initial relief within just a few sessions.

This proven, non-surgical approach could help you find the pain relief you need.
