Sherwood Park Spinal Decompression

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a chiropractic therapy aimed to relieve debilitating pain caused by bulging, degenerated, or herniated spinal discs.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a traction-based therapy which gently stretches the spine. Using computer-aided technology, the spine is decompressed from the constant state of gravitational forces, resulting in long-lasting improvements in pain.

In this process, a negative pressure is formed to allow increased nutrient uptake and oxygen circulation in the discs and joints of the spinal cord. This is a pain-free and non-invasive procedure to help with the overall mobility of the neck and back.
 

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression is helpful for treating a wide variety of nerve pain related to the spine, such as sciatica, damaged spinal nerve roots, or worn joints.

Your chiropractor will first assess your condition. Using a special machine, you'll lay on a bed in loose, comfortable clothing with a harness around your pelvis and trunk. 

The chiropractor will gently stretch your spine, using computer-technology for accuracy. The constant state of gravitational forces decompressing your spine will relieve tension and pinching pain.

In this process, a negative pressure is formed to allow increased nutrient uptake and oxygen circulation in the discs and joints of the spinal cord. This is a pain-free and non-invasive procedure to help with the overall mobility of the neck and back.

Our chiropractic clinic is conveniently located on Athabasca Avenue with spinal decompression therapy to help you get moving again. If you’re interested in learning more about how nonsurgical spinal decompression can help you relieve pain for your condition, reach out to our clinic today.

Is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Suitable For Me?

At Refresh Health & Wellness, we're pleased to offer nonsurgical spinal decompression near you! Let's discuss what conditions are appropriate for this specialised chiropractic treatment.

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

  • Herniated/bulging discs

  • Chronic neck and back pain

  • Arthritis

  • Whiplash

  • Neuropathies

  • Numbness/tingling in upper and lower extremities 

Spinal decompression is a highly effective, non-invasive treatment option that focuses on relieving pressure on the intervertebral discs along the spine. By removing tension from gravity, poor posture and muscle tightness, it allows the centre of the disc (nucleus pulposus) to take its natural position.

Spinal decompression therapy aims to restore the correct physiological alignment of the spine and increases blood circulation to the area to allow the body's natural healing process to take its course.
