Spinal Decompression Evaluation in Irvine
When you have a disc-related condition that puts excessive pressure on your spine, chronic pain and stiffness can occur. Decompressing the spine through noninvasive methods helps ease this pressure and makes it possible for damaged discs to heal. At the Pain Management Center of Irvine, we offer safe and effective spinal decompression therapy (DTS) for spinal problems.
How Decompression Works at Pain Management Center of Irvine
This type of treatment works by stretching your spine with the assistance of the latest technology from Chattanooga, a leading developer of decompression technology and machinery. This FDA-approved equipment gently lengthens your spine in order to create decompression, which helps ease pressure on the affected discs and repositions disc material if you have a bulging or herniated disc. This decreased pressure in the affected discs allows nutrients to reach them to help them heal. It also improves blood flow to damaged discs.
Before recommending this type of treatment, we will perform a thorough evaluation of your condition. If we find that you have a herniated disc, a degenerated disc or another spinal problem that responds favorably to decompression, we will recommend this form of treatment. During each treatment session, you can expect to lie on a motorized table that alternately stretches and relaxes your spine for about 15 to 20 minutes. This form of treatment is not painful and does not involve any type of invasive technique. Keep in mind that we might recommend coming back for multiple sessions over a period of time depending on your condition. More severe spinal problems generally require a higher number of treatment sessions in order to work effectively.
Types of Spinal Decompression
Decompression therapy can be used to target affected discs in the upper or lower part of the spine. Lumbar decompression, which is used on the lower part of the spine, can help relieve lower back pain and pain that moves down the leg on one side of your body due to sciatica. Cervical decompression focuses on the upper part of the spine to relieve upper back or neck pain. It can be difficult to find chiropractic care facilities that offer cervical decompression, but our chiropractor does offer it.
Whether you need cervical or lumbar decompression, you can count on receiving safe, high-quality care. We will go over the details of how this treatment works and how much relief you can expect to experience. We might also recommend other forms of treatment to go along with decompression. These other types of treatments typically complement the effects of decompression, which helps lower the risk of having upper or lower back pain occur again.
