We offer comprehensive spinal decompression therapy services to our clients to help relieve back or leg pain, injured spinal nerve roots, worn spinal joints, or degenerative disk disease. Through a series of activities, we stretch the spine, changing the force and position of the way it affects your spinal disks. This aids in the healing process and can increase your range of mobility.
Spinal Decompression Therapy in Springfield
Having access to the best spinal decompression therapy in Springfield gives you an advantage. Our patients receive advanced non-surgical treatment in our new state-of-the-art facility. Treatment can last up to 45 minutes, along with a regimen of 20 to 28 customized treatments over a period of five to seven weeks. Our chiropractors assess each patient to determine the best course of action. Prior to this treatment, one of the following types of treatment may be recommended for the best outcome:
- Cold or heat therapy
- Electrical stimulation
Who Does Not Qualify For Spinal Decompression Therapy?
There are instances where the team at Meek Integrative Health Center will not recommend spinal decompression therapy. Individuals who are pregnant, have fractures, tumors, advanced osteoporosis, metal implants in the spine, or an abdominal aortic aneurysm are not viable candidates for this type of treatment.
What Happens During This Treatment?
To administer this type of treatment, the chiropractor will fit you with two harnesses: one around the pelvis, and one around the trunk of the body. Depending on how the treatment is being given, you may be required to lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. You will feel a stretch in the spine, but the process is not painful. If pain is experienced during or after the treatment, this may not be a good method of treatment to continue.
You may be required to drink up to a half-gallon of water per day, and perform exercises at home to increase mobility and strength.
