What Does the Treatment Involve?
This is a type of therapy that is often used to treat disc pain in the back and neck that can lead to symptoms of sciatica and carpal tunnel. The discs in your spine are decompressed so that the excess pressure that has built up is relieved. This can then take the pressure away from the nerves in the spine. Some conditions that you might have that may or may not benefit from spinal decompression at our Bradenton office include spinal stenosis and foraminal stenosis caused by advanced arthritic changes in the spine.
Is the Outcome Good?
Most of the time, the benefits of spinal decompression in Bradenton outweigh any kind of risks that are associated with the procedure. Success rates are usually high with this procedure as it’s not as invasive as surgery. However, you can consult with our doctor about concerns that you might have and the overall process to determine if you would be a good candidate or if there are other therapy options that you might want to try first.
When Could I See Results?
Since each person is different, there’s no definite length of time set aside for seeing results from the therapy. However, most people tend to see relief within weeks after starting the treatment. For spinal decompression to be effective, we usually perform it at a frequency of three times per week for four to six weeks. Although the goal is for long-term success, there are situations that might require you to visit the office on a regular basis for future appointments so that you can continue to get the relief that you need.
