Is Spinal Decompression in Vacaville Painful?

Chiropractic Vacaville CA Is Spinal Decompression Painful

If you have not heard of spinal decompression in Vacaville, it is a type of treatment that uses motorized traction to relieve back pain. The traction device will gently stretch your pain and change its force and position. When you're already experiencing pain during treatment, even a slight stretch can be uncomfortable. However, spinal decompression can be an effective alternative to surgery and other types of painful treatment.

Most patients have reported that they're starting to feel better as soon as the treatment begins, while there are also those who require several visits to experience relief.

What does spinal decompression in Vacaville consist of?

Before you even accept to undergo the treatment, you must have a thorough understanding of how the appointment will go. Each session usually runs for about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the severity of your condition and your response to the treatment. You remain fully clothed during the treatment and you will be asked to lie down on the decompression table. Depending on the clinic, the process will either be motorized or just by simply using the hands of the practitioner.

What do patients say about spinal decompression?

The majority of patients report that they've experienced no pain during the treatment and apart from being able to unwind physically, they also take the time to relax mentally. Spinal decompression is safe wherein the gentle traction targets the problem area/s of the neck or lower back and will return the spinal discs back to their proper alignment and function. No excessive pressure is used in realigning the discs.

There is a small percentage of patients who reported that they've felt a slight discomfort during therapy. However, these cases are relatively small and the reason behind that happening isn't something too serious. It could be due to too little or too much pressure, the treatment session went on for too long, improper position on the decompression table or they've experienced a traction reaction-short muscle spasm after treatment. Whatever the case may be, these cases are rare and don't make spinal decompression a dangerous form of treatment.

What can you do to improve your spinal decompression experience?

To provide yourself with the best experience during your spinal decompression therapy, here are some tips that you can follow:

  • Be honest and thorough about your medical history during the initial consultation and exam.
  • Establish open communication during the session and don't be ashamed if you start feeling pain.
  • Don't be tense! Just relax and enjoy the safe treatment procedure as it returns your spine to its normal function and purpose.
