Spinal Decompression in Victoria

casual man with back painWhen you have an injury to your spine, it can feel like your entire life is affected. Sometimes, natural aging factors or standing for long periods of time for work can cause degenerative changes that result in disc herniation or protrusion. The spine can become compressed in these instances, leading to inflammation and pain. That’s where spinal decompression therapy comes in.


Types of Spinal Decompression Therapy

At Aria Health and Wellness Clinic, we offer two types of traction therapy: multi-vector and decompression. Our multi-vector traction therapy is designed to correct postural issues and change the spine in multiple directions. The goal is to alleviate tension in the joints, ligaments, nerves, and muscles in the neck and upper back area.

On the other hand, our decompression therapy uses specialized tables that can pull in the y-axis (lengthwise) to decompress the spine. This creates more space between the vertebrae, which can help alleviate compression of the discs and reduce inflammation. The pressure used during decompression is individualized per person based on their history, MRI or X-ray reports, and injury.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy provides many benefits to patients. Stretching and lengthening the spine helps alleviate the pain associated with herniated or bulging discs. It also creates more space for nerves to breathe and reduces inflammation, leading to faster healing times. Patients report feeling less pain and greater mobility after spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal decompression can also help with other conditions, such as stenosis, which is a build-up or choking of the spinal canal. Spinal decompression therapy can reduce inflammation and promote healing by flushing fresh blood and nutrients into the area.

Crafting a Customized Care Plan to Meet Your Goals

At our practice, we know that every patient is unique, which is why we offer personalized care plans that are tailored to each patient’s needs. We work with patients to determine which type of spinal decompression therapy best suits their injury.
