Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Spinal Decompression for Back Pain in Littleton and Columbine CO

lady smling

Treatment for back pain is often medication and physical therapy. When these treatments fail surgery often becomes the next course of treatment. Research has shown that an estimated 8 million unnecessary back surgeries are performed a year. In fact, nearly 40% of all back surgeries are considered failed back surgeries. The unfortunate thing for many patients in Littleton and Columbine is that they would often benefit from spinal decompression therapy.

A more conservative option available is spinal decompression. Many underlying causes of back pain respond well to this type of treatment. Spinal decompression works using technology to stretch the spine thus reducing pressure on the intervertebral discs and vertebra.

It is common to see chronic low back pain be a result of degenerative disc disease, disc herniation or bulging discs. Other common conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Failed back surgery

Spinal decompression utilizes mechanical traction which allows for specific force and a specific angle for distraction on the disc. By using a computer, we are able to minimize the body’s natural response to fight force. By being able to minimize the body’s natural urge to resist, we are to enhance the amount of nutrients and blood flow that assists the body’s healing process.

It is most common to receive twenty sessions during a course of treatment. When a patient is receiving their first round of treatment, sessions will start at around five visits the first week and gradually decrease to twice a week over a few weeks. Spinal decompression visits last at least 30 minutes.

Spinal decompression is not just a way to treat back pain, but can also be used for acute and chronic neck pain. Patients must be eighteen years or older in order to able to receive therapy. There have not been any safety issues or adverse side effects that have ever been reported. Even though this is the case, the patients as well as the technicians are equipped with an emergency stop. It has been reported by patients that they experienced mild muscles spasms for a short time after treatment.

Overall, the majority of the patients that have received spinal decompression have reported significant improvement in their condition and a better quality of life. There is generally notable improvement after at least 5 treatments.

If you have suffered any recent spinal fractures or had surgical fusion or metal spinal implants than you are not a candidate for this type of treatment. An evaluation will be performed prior to treatment to make sure that you are a qualified patient. Our team at Littleton Chiropractic in Littleton and Columbine is here to help you recover.
