Spinal Decompression Treatment
Did you know that nearly 10% of the American population deals with lower back pain at a given moment? That’s almost
31 million people deprived of a pain-free life. While each person’s case is unique, the pain stems from degenerative
conditions or disc issues (herniated or slipped discs).
For those experiencing lumbar pain, this discomfort makes everyday tasks difficult, if not impossible. For those
experiencing spinal pain, decompression treatment over a series of appointments can alleviate your discomfort. By
pairing decompression with chiropractic adjustments, you’ll be back to your old self in no time.
Spinal Decompression in Palm Beach Health Center
Many of our patients benefit from decompression treatment, even those suffering from chronic lower back pain. 9/10
patients who undergo treatment report feeling better after several sessions. However, some see immediate relief from
pain after just one session.
A comprehensive list of conditions spinal decompression helps with:
- Headaches and migraines
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
You’ll be lying down on a mechanized table that will stretch your spine safely and comfortably. Your service provider
will strap you in with several harnesses and provide a kill switch if you need to stop the procedure at any time.
The goal of the treatment is to correct the alignment of discs, which are the areas causing pain and discomfort.
Things to Know Before Setting Your Appointment
How Long Does a Session Last and is it Painful?
Each session will last 10-15 minutes. In total, you’ll be looking at up to 12 sessions. Despite how it may sound, the
treatment is painless and won’t cause your body any stress. You can expect to feel a pulling sensation in your lower
back and feel a slight pressure from the tightened straps around your chest and waist. Be mindful to rest afterward.
You’re likely to feel sore.
What Are the Benefits of Stretching Your Spine?
Our decompression tables are often used before chiropractic adjustments. As the machine works, a space will be
created between each disc. Not only does this create a vacuum that sucks the discs back into place, but the
treatment helps lubricate your discs. This, in turn, will provide an easier and more comfortable adjustment.
Does Insurance cover spinal Decompression?
Some large insurance providers may cover it, while others group it into chiropractic care. At Palm Beach Health
Center, the price of treatment is at a self-pay rate. We do this to make the treatment more accessible for those
that need pain relief can easily receive it.
