Spinal Decompression in Leesburg

Are pains in your back or neck preventing you from doing what you want to do? Is your sciatica causing unbearable ongoing symptoms? Or has a recent diagnosis highlighted issues with one of your spinal discs?

Whatever your condition or symptoms, pain treatment using spinal decompression at our state-of-the-art clinic in Leesburg may be the answer.

Here’s what the treatment involves and what you can expect from it.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

For hundreds of years, spinal decompression has been a go-to treatment for a wealth of health care professionals, including osteopaths and chiropractors.

It works to create the best possible healing environment for your spinal discs by providing spinal traction. This, in turn, helps alleviate those painful symptoms.

This is why the treatment is recommended for a whole host of patients, from those with facet syndrome or sciatica to those with herniated, degenerated, or bulging discs. Even people who have just undergone surgery or have stenosis may benefit immensely from it.

What Does It Involve?

The treatment involves lying on a specialist table. The lower half of the table moves and this is where your hips are strapped to the table.

The moving part of the table is then moved back and forth to create the traction and relaxation method that’s at the heart of this treatment.

At no point during this procedure should you feel any pain – in fact, you’ll probably find it quite relaxing! However, mild discomfort may be felt by those with severely injured discs. This slight discomfort should disappear when you’ve had a few sessions with us.

Each treatment lasts approximately 45 minutes and you may require several treatments per week, lasting a total of 4 to 6 weeks.

How Does It Work?

Due to the movement of this unique table, it allows us to stretch your spine. This plays an imperative role in how we change the position and force of your spinal discs to reduce the pain you’re experiencing.

In each of your discs, negative pressure is created, so when they retract, the pressure that’s currently being placed on your spinal structure and nerves is released. This also stimulates the movement of oxygen, nutrients, and water into the area to establish a prime healing environment.

Furthermore, to ensure your treatment plan is successful, we’ll tailor it to your unique needs, perhaps complementing it with other chiropractic treatments for maximum results.
