In the deepest, darkest corner of Meyer Chiropractic, under sputtering torches there is a device that looks like something from a 14th century castle dungeon. The Rack.
Truth be told, it is in a well lit area, complete with its own 40 inch TV. And, it’s not a torture device, it is Dr. Meyer’s spinal decompression table. Decompression doesn’t cause pain, it relieves it.
How We Use Spinal Decompression in Southlake to Relieve Pain
In between each bone (vertebrae) in your spine there is a disc, the disc is the soft cushion that allows your spine to move. This disc can be inured, causing it to bulge or even herniate. When that happens, a part of the disc will impact on a nerve, causing sharp, shooting pain (such as sciatica). Spinal Decompression therapy is the BEST way to treat a bulging or herniated disc. When you receive treatment, a specific traction is performed on the injured disc. This “Decompresses” it, which diminishes the damage and pulls the disc off of the nerve, alleviating pain.
If you or someone you know is suffering from sciatic, pain shooting down the arm, numbness or tingling, contact our office today to see if we can help you without using shots, drugs or surgery. We offer spinal decompression in Southlake.
How Fast Can I Feel Relief After Spinal Decompression?
Most patients can feel relief in their first time on the spinal decompression table (that we’ll still call the Rack). You can feel longer lasting effects as early as just two weeks with our Southlake spinal decompression therapy.
