A person suffering from chronic pain, regardless of the cause, has a diminished quality of life. They live with limited movement and the inability to focus effectively. Often, their pain is blanketed by the use of medications that can cause side unwanted effects, and because the pain is constant, patients often develop intolerances to or dependencies on the medications that lead to addiction. For many, the cause of their discomfort is spine-related. Some problems include back or neck pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, worn spinal joins, or injured spinal nerve roots.
At Southside Chiropractic & Car Accident Injury Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, we offer Spinal Decompression Therapy and Cold Laser Therapy, two non-surgical, medication-free therapies to relieve our patients from their chronic pain.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a safe procedure that, if done properly, causes little pain and in fact, some patients even report that it feels good. Occasionally, patients feel some discomfort following spinal decompression therapy as a result of the healing process that takes place in their bodies.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical procedure in which the patient, fully clothed, wears a harness that is attached to a computerized table. While lying in a resting position, the table actually gently stretches the spine, opening up the joints and allowing them to flood with valuable nutrients that rehydrate and heals them. The 15 to 20-minute treatment applies cycles of decompression that last from 3 to 5 minutes each and is continued through future sessions.
