Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression in Westport

What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a treatment in which forces are applied to the spine in order to maximize spinal elongation. In order to accomplish this, the paraspinal muscles, the muscles which protect the spine from injury, are relaxed, enabling your chiropractor to apply spinal decompressive forces to spread the vertebrae of the spine. Spinal decompression can be very effective at relieving pressure on nerves and intervertebral discs, facilitating the movement of spinal fluid. At Westport Chiropractic and Acupuncture, we utilize a lumbar spinal decompression machine to perform the treatment. This is a machine that incorporates high-speed treatment computers that calculate the spinal decompression treatment curve for each individual patient, ensuring that every patient receives the detailed, expert care that they need.

Am I a Candidate for Spinal Decompression?

Before beginning treatment, our Westport chiropractor will provide you with a free consultation and discuss your personal situation, helping you determine what the best course of action is for yourself. Westport Spinal decompression treatments usually last 25-30 minutes, during which you will be reclined on a heavily-padded bed. Each treatment session consists of 18 phases, where decompressive forces alternate between maximum and minimum therapeutic value. During treatment, most patients relax by listening to music, watching a DVD, or even napping.

There are many different conditions that can benefit from spinal decompression treatment, including:

  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet syndrome
