Disc Decompression Therapy

Decompression therapy consists of decompressing the discs in either your low back or neck by using the decompression machine to “pull” or “stretch” your low back or neck and take the pressure off your nerves and discs.  The decompression therapy is gentle and effective.  It lasts about 30 minutes and most people fall asleep while on the therapy.  This is a great treatment if you have one of the following symptoms:

  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Degenerative disc
  • Facet syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Burning, numbness, tingling down your leg or arm

Myofascial and Soft Tissue Therapy

Myofascial and soft tissue treatment includes relieving restrictions, adhesions, or “knots” in muscles and tendons, as well as reducing scar tissue around joints.  There have been several techniques and tools developed to treat myofascial and soft tissues injuries.  Manual treatment consists of locating these adhesions, pinning them down, and stretching the muscle or tendon to reduce the adhesion.  Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) consists of using a special tool to effectively break down the adhesions and restrictions.   Depending on the region or area of the body, your Doctor of Chiropractic will determine whether it is best to use their hands or an instrument to treat your condition.
