If you have moderate to severe back pain or surgery has been recommended, we may be able to help you. Our chiropractor in Glen Ellyn offers spinal decompression to heal various types of back injuries.
Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy
Non-surgical decompression therapy is performed with a decompression table to increase the spaces between the vertebrae, allowing them to move back into their correct place. This is achieved through the use of motorized traction which utilizes a pulley system and varying forces to carefully stretch the spine to relieve pain and heal injuries. This treatment does not involve the use of surgery or invasive procedures, and our chiropractors do not advocate for the use of prescription medications to treat symptoms.
Common Injuries Treated By Spinal Decompression
If you are trying to avoid back surgery or have already undergone an ineffective back surgery, spinal decompression may be right for you. It can successfully reduce pain and improve back function in individuals with arthritis, degenerative joint disease, spinal stenosis, worn spinal joints and spinal nerve roots that are diseased or injured. Non-surgical decompression can also successfully reduce pain and treat sciatica and herniated discs.
ABS Ultra Decompression Table
Our chiropractic clinic utilizes the ABS Ultra Decompression Table. It is a state-of-the-art decompression table that is computer controlled for maximum effectiveness. The computer contains six automatic programs for decompressing the lumber and cervical vertebrae. Individuals undergoing treatment can enjoy comfortable memory foam cushions and a double-wide table.
Benefits of Decompression Therapy
Decompression Treatment with our Chiropractor in Glen Ellyn
Our chiropractor in Glen Ellyn will perform a physical evaluation and ask you about your symptoms to determine if decompression is right for you. If it is, you will be prescribed several sessions over a period of weeks. During each session, our chiropractor will configure the table for your treatment and place a belt attached to a pulley system around your lower body. Decompression treatments last a maximum of 30 minutes. Most individuals find the treatments relaxing and convenient.
If our chiropractor believes that you will not benefit from decompression therapy or that you need additional medical treatment prior to starting decompression therapy, you will be informed of our findings and referred to another doctor or your primary care physician.
Total Body Wellness
Our chiropractor believes in total body wellness. This means that we seek to treat more than just your symptoms but help improve the overall health of your body. To help you achieve better heath and wellness, we may recommend additional treatments, including our 30 day health plan, chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture and massage. For women, we offer comprehensive health and wellness plans that are designed to specifically work with the female body.
