Decompression Therapy Reviews
"I was referred to the Q Factor Chiropractic with Dr Cantrelle in Dallas for chronic back pain and numbness in my lower extremities by another patient. What makes this clinic stand out is the mix of physical therapy using various modalities and chiropractic adjustments. The clinic offers muscle stims, decompression therapy, and adjustments to the back which relieves the majority of the symptoms rather quickly. The program requires you to come in three days a week gradually decreasing visits as your healing resolves your complaints. He has exercise machines for physical therapy and very easy low impact exercises to strengthen the back which serve to hold the adjustments in place and facilitate the healing process. He also provides a massage therapist, and water therapy. The staff and Dr Cantrelle are very patient centric and I never had to wait to be seen. They are very pleasant and humorous. They enjoy what they do."- S.H. / Facebook / May 04, 2019
CANDIDATES FOR DECOMPRESSION THERAPY
The goal of decompression therapy is to relieve spinal pain caused by a herniated disc or another issue, which is accomplished by using a traction table to stretch the spine. This stretching allows the spine to correct any bulges or herniated discs. If you have back pain due to a herniated disc or related issue and have not found relief with other treatments, our team at Q Factor Chiropractic can help you determine if this treatment could be the solution you're looking for. After a thorough consultation in which we assess your current health and medical history, we will craft a personalized treatment program for you. Decompression therapy is often performed periodically throughout a year or so or until the proper result has been achieved.
What to Expect After Decompression Therapy
Q Factor Chiropractic provides detailed guidance through every step of your treatment plan, as well as how to keep your long-term outcomes after decompression therapy. Depending on the severity of your injury or health issue, you may need to rest for a few days and keep physical activity to a minimum such as walking or light stretching. You can also benefit from regularly scheduled massage sessions and chiropractic adjustments to maintain the improvements and correct any alignment issues.
Decompression Therapy FAQ
What does it feel like when your spine is compressed?
Some common symptoms of a compressed spine include:
- Pain and/or stiffness in the neck, back, and lower back
- Burning pain that can spread or shoot to the arms, buttocks, or legs (sciatica)
- Weakness in the legs, arms, or hands
How does decompression therapy work?
Spinal decompression therapy works to reduce pain and stiffness by using negative intradiscal pressure to relieve pressure on compressed discs, pinched nerves, and slipped or herniated discs without the need for surgery. It includes stretching the spine on a traction table to elongate the spine and relieve pressure.
How many decompression therapy sessions will I need?
The number of decompression therapy sessions you’ll need will depend on your unique condition and issues. Most patients will need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. During your consultation at Q Factor Chiropractic, a member of our team will give you an evaluation, talk to you about your medical history, and then be able to create a personalized treatment plan for you.
