Episode 116: Back Pain & Decompression Therapy


Chiropractic Fort Worth TX Benefits Of Spinal Decompression

Millions of Americans live with chronic back pain. While some healthcare providers recommend invasive surgeries or prescription drugs to provide relief, our doctors believe that less invasive procedures such as spinal decompression can be more beneficial. Texas Injury Clinic invites you to learn more about the many benefits of spinal decompression therapy in Fort Worth.

Spinal decompression is a mechanical procedure that gently stretches the spine in order to reduce pressure on the spinal discs. By relieving pressure, disrupted discs can naturally retract back into place. Additionally, decompressing the spine allows oxygen, nutrients, and fluids to re-enter the disks, providing additional healing. Patients who undergo spinal decompression may experience the following benefits:

  • Non-invasive Treatment
    Spinal decompression can treat cases of back and neck pain without the need for more invasive procedures. No incisions, needles, or significant manipulation of the spine is required when undergoing spinal decompression. In fact, therapy using the DRX-9000 is so comfortable that most patients are able to take a nap during a treatment session.
  • No Recovery Time
    Spinal surgery can leave patients bed-ridden and in discomfort for weeks on end. Even after undergoing back surgery, there is no guarantee of full relief from back pain.
    • There is little to no recovery time associated with spinal decompression. In fact, once your treatment is completed, you will likely be able to drive yourself home or back to work.
  • Significantly Reduced Pain
    Because spinal decompression addresses the underlying causes of back pain, it is considered a long-term treatment and not a quick fix. This treatment can promote the healing of spinal disc tissue, and when it is coupled with positive lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, the pain-relieving benefits of spinal decompression can be maximized.
  • It Is Safe For All Ages
    Due to its non-invasive nature, spinal decompression is safe for young, middle-aged, or older men and women. If you have questions or concerns about age limitations, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors.
  • No Medication Required
    Prescription drugs are often recommended by doctors to relieve back pain. Medications can be expensive and often come with unwanted side effects.
  • Cost-effective
    Compared to the cost of surgery or years of medication, spinal decompression is a cost-effective alternative. Meanwhile, the non-invasive procedure does not usually require a recovery period, so you most likely will not have to miss work.
  • Promotes Healing and Overall Good Health
    Spinal decompression harnesses the body’s own natural healing processes to relieve pain.

If you are suffering from back pain, we encourage you to explore the option of non-invasive treatment.
