Get Answers to Your Questions about Spinal Decompression
If you suffer from spine or neck pain, Texas Injury Clinic in Fort Worth, TX, offers safe and effective spinal decompression as a treatment option. We are proud to offer the advanced DRX9000™, a revolutionary spinal decompression machine. Read our spinal decompression FAQ to learn more about the treatment process from our team of expert chiropractors.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Decompression therapy relieves back pain by manually or mechanically stretching the spine to relieve pressure. The therapy allows the discs to replenish nutrients, moisture, and oxygen, which often alleviates discomfort. One benefit of using our advanced DRX9000 in particular is that unlike other forms of spinal decompression therapy, there is little to no downtime involved.
During treatment, one of our chiropractors will position you comfortably on a special table before strapping you in place. An advanced computer then begins your personalized program by administering the ideal angle of decompression and incline for a predetermined period of time, which is typically 30 to 45 minutes.
Most of our Fort Worth patients find spinal decompression relaxing. You are welcome to listen to music or nap during the gentle treatment session. However, depending on your needs, you may need multiple treatments to stabilize your spine. A session of decompression therapy may be followed by electrical stimulation and cryotherapy.
What Does Spinal Decompression Treat?
Spinal decompression can treat a wide range of neck- and spine-related injuries and conditions, such as:
- Herniated discs
- Injured spinal nerve roots
- Spinal stenosis
- Worn joints
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lower back pain
After 15 or more treatments, many patients experience complete restoration of spinal function and feel normal again.
What Are Some of the Benefits of Spinal Decompression?
The main benefit of spinal decompression is the opportunity to completely heal from an injury or condition that would otherwise require invasive treatments. By allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach the inner areas of your spine, you can benefit from accelerated healing. After 15 or more treatments, many patients experience complete restoration of spinal function and feel normal again.
Spinal decompression is a gentle and completely customizable treatment that alleviates back pain and allows the back and neck to heal without surgical interference. Many of our patients enjoy the non-invasive nature of spinal decompression. Even patients who come with severe symptoms are able to avoid surgery by undergoing treatments through our DRX9000.
Who Qualifies for Spinal Decompression?
Most patients are good candidates for spinal decompression. During a consultation and exam at our Fort Worth chiropractic clinic, one of our doctors will ensure that you do not have any conditions that could complicate the use of spinal decompression.
However, certain forms of nerve damage or past spinal fusion treatments may require alternative treatments. Our doctors may also recommend other options for patients who are pregnant, have bone fractures in the spine, have been diagnosed with tumors, or who are obese. If you are found to not be a candidate for spinal decompression, our Fort Worth chiropractic clinic offers multiple safe and effective alternative treatment options.
