Spinal Decompression Therapy

Nashville Auto Accident & Sports Injury Pain Relief

If you have been struggling with back pain or neck pain for three months or longer, you may be a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy. This revolutionary treatment uses precise, computerized adjustments to gently traction the spine, relieving compression and nourishing the spinal discs. By creating space between the spinal discs, a herniated or compressed disc is able to return to its proper position in the spine, relieving chronic low back pain, upper back pain and neck pain. Our Nashville chiropractor frequently recommends spinal decompression therapy for auto accident victims, including patients with whiplash injuries, as a safe, effective pain management alternative to medication and invasive surgery.

Helping Auto Accident Patients Heal & Treating Whiplash Injuries

Spinal decompression therapy is beneficial for both neck pain and back pain. Our chiropractor has used this treatment to successfully relieve pain for patients with whiplash injuries, lower back pain, and sciatica. Whiplash, for example, is a common auto accident injury that affects spinal alignment. Spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment because it safely restores correct alignment through gentle traction, protecting and supporting the neck. Depending on your treatment needs, our Nashville injury chiropractor may recommend combining decompression therapy with other complementary treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, for maximum pain relief benefits. If you are looking for injury treatment and pain relief that does not rely on medication or surgery, we encourage you to consider spinal decompression as a treatment option.

During a spinal decompression treatment session, patients lie on our comfortable table that is connected to the computer. The computer will precisely control the table’s movements. While movement may seem small to non-existent, these minor movements are carefully stretching the spine and gently decompressing the vertebra. Each treatment session lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. Most patients find treatment to be extremely relaxing; some even take a short nap! The number of required treatment sessions varies depending on a patient’s need for pain relief and injury rehabilitation. Our goal is to not only relieve your pain, but also correct the root cause. In general, our chiropractor finds that a series of 10 to 12 treatment sessions deliver the longest lasting pain relief benefits for our patients. Since every body is different, we will tailor treatment to meet your specific needs.

If you have recently been in a car accident and are experiencing pain, do not delay treatment! The earlier our auto accident injury chiropractor diagnoses the root cause for your pain, the more we can do to relieve your pain and help your body safely heal following this injury. Without effective treatment, whiplash injuries can lead to months or even years of recurring pain. Spinal decompression therapy is an effective, non-invasive, drug-free technique that treats the root cause for your pain, helping you heal faster and get back to living an active life.
