If you are looking for a non-surgical medical option to recover from an injury, Spinal Decompression therapy may be the answer you seek. Here at Luke Chiropractic and Sports Injury in Honolulu, we offer Spinal Decompression Therapy as a treatment to get yourself out of pain and into wellness. Read on to find out if Spinal Decompression Therapy is right for you.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a specialized type of rehabilitation therapy that can rehabilitate a misaligned or injured the spine. Spinal Decompression therapy works by stretching out the spine and thereby creating room for the displaced vertebrae to move back into its optimal position. When the spine is stretched, a vacuum is created that naturally moves the vertebrae back in place.

Additionally, when the spine is stretched, there is more room for the passage of essential nutrients and circulation, which in turn aids overall healing.

How is the Spine Stretched in Spinal Decompression Therapy?

When undergoing spinal decompression therapy, a trained chiropractor will gently help the patient stretch with the use of a traction table or similar motorized device which can gently pull vertebrae apart and let them set back together naturally. Your spine is the hub of your nervous system and can be easily damaged or throw out of alignment; it is essential to only receive spinal decompression therapy from a trained chiropractor for this reason.

Spinal decompression therapy is not painful, and most patients report feeling a lessening in pain after each session. How long each treatment session will take depends on the client and the severity of his or her injury, likewise the number of treatment sessions necessary to get back to health also depends on the injury.
