If you suffer from back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc in your spine, spinal decompression in Daytona Beach can help. While in the past treating disc issues would have required surgery, these days, you have non-surgical options. In most cases, non-surgical spinal decompression can be just as effective as surgical treatment, and you won’t have to worry about recovering from the procedure. At Arciom Chiropractic Clinic in Daytona Beach, Dr. Mary Jo Arciom is proud to offer spinal decompression services. Here’s what you need to know to decide if this type of treatment is right for you.
When you undergo spinal decompression therapy in Daytona Beach, you’ll lie on a decompression machine. The machine is connected to a computer, which analyzes your spine as the machine gently separates the discs. The goals of treatment are to restore optimal spine function and alleviate pain.
The separation creates somewhat of a suction effect, pulling the bulging disc back into place between your vertebrae. This can relieve pressure on the nerves in your spine, relieving pain and enabling smooth movement of fluid throughout the spine. The injured disc can then begin to heal.
For the most part, spinal decompression treatment is not painful. In fact, many patients find it so relaxing that they fall asleep during the procedure. Although you will feel some relief from pain right away, spinal decompression typically requires multiple treatments to be fully successful. For example, you might come in to see Dr. Arciom two or three times per week for up to eight weeks, depending on the severity of your spinal issues.
Dr. Arciom will let you know the recommended treatment schedule for your needs during your initial consultation. She will walk you through the entire process so you know exactly what to expect going forward.
