DRS Protocol™ Blog

Many people that live with pain ask, “Is spinal decompression therapy effective?” Spine decompression therapy, combined with rehabilitation, helps re-educate muscles, ligaments, and tendons, so the discs are protected in a healthier environment in the spine. Many patients have actually stated that they look forward to the treatment, as it is usually quite comfortable and well-tolerated, with the added benefit of treating and relieving their pain.

Is spinal decompression therapy effective, you ask? Non-invasive spine decompression therapy is safe and effective without the usual risks associated with injections, anesthesia, or surgery. Each session of treatment is generally comprised of a series of 15 one-minute alternating decompression and relaxation cycles. Treatment slowly and gently stretches the area of the spine while decompressing the discs. This technique often allows for pressure to be relieved from the nerve root and promotes repositioning of the bulging or herniated disc. The frequency the number of sessions prescribed will vary with each patient, taking into account the type of injury to the body, and the severity of the pain.

To find out if you are a candidate for spine decompression therapy, find a chiropractor who specializes in back pain with the goal of treating the root cause of the pain, not just the symptoms. Using advanced computer technology, a mechanical traction device controls the force and angle of disc distraction, reducing the body’s natural tendency to resist an external force. This enhanced control allows non-surgical spinal decompression tables to apply a traction force to the discs of the spinal column to reduce the pressure between each disc.

Our doctors at McKim Chiropractic want to recommend the DRS Protocol™, a non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, for qualifying patients for relief of pain associated with spinal and disc problems. This technique provides outstanding and predictable results, providing relief from pain for many patients whose conditions would have traditionally made them candidates for surgery or other invasive treatments.

Ask our doctors of chiropractic at McKim Chiropractic for a consultation and examination to determine if spine decompression therapy is right for you.
