Spinal Decompression

back neck pain HelensvaleSpinal Decompression is one of the latest phrases you hear of for the treatment of back or neck pain.

What Exactly Is Spinal Decompression?

It works on the idea that the discs between the vertebrae absorb and distribute shock or forces and can become damaged due to these stresses.

A decompression table allows a practitioner to target de-compressive traction at a specific location, with a set force for a predetermined time to help use negative pressure to reduce and release the effect of a disc bulge. Although this can be a wonderful technique, the question of why the disc bulge occurred in the first place still needs to be answered and also treated.

Some businesses advertise spinal decompression as an alternative to traditional therapies, at Family Health Professionals Helensvale, it’s not. Spinal decompression is a long-standing Chiropractic technique that is best used in conjunction with other corrective procedures.

Our Difference

Many Chiropractors have used de-compressive therapy for well over half a century. However, at Family Health Professionals Helensvale we also analyse the function of the pelvis, hips, muscle imbalances, and gait or posture disturbances. If the original mechanical cause is not addressed and is still present the risk of the decompressed disc becoming irritated again is inevitable.

At Family Health Professionals Helensvale we are one of only a few clinics with a spinal decompression table that allows us to integrate this technique into a treatment plan when you have suffered a disc bulge.
