Alameda Chiropractor | Spinal Decompression Available in Our Alameda Location!
Symmetry Health Center is excited to announce the addition of Decompression Therapy to our Alameda location! We have had incredible success in our Oakland location utilizing this one-of-a-kind technology. In conjunction with our specialized chiropractic care, decompression therapy has provided many of our patients long-awaited relief. We are thrilled to finally expand this wonderful service to both of our East Bay locations!
Decompression works by producing a controlled pull in specified regions allowing proper motion to be restored to the compromised spinal joints. After a thorough analysis with one of our chiropractors, decompression may be recommended to the patient. It has shown great success with conditions such as disc herniations, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, spinal stenosis, and radiating nerve pain. These conditions can create debilitating pain that may not exhibit symptomatic improvement through other conservative treatment routes. Often those seeking decompression therapy have already had a lack of results from physical therapy, exercise therapy, and traditional chiropractic care. Decompression proves to be a very effective tool in certain cases and is an alternative treatment option that should be explored prior to more invasive options, such as surgical intervention.
Decompression is usually recommended for a series of visits. Each session lasts approximately 10 minutes and produces an axial pull that often feels quite good to the patient. It allows the injured spinal joints to be gently stretched and the pressure removed from the discs in between. This can assist in the retraction of disc bulges and herniations. Additionally, it is very therapeutic for the body because it allows for water, essential nutrients, and oxygen to be pumped back into the compressed disc space which are all vital for healthy, fully functioning spinal joints. The nerve roots exit at the disc which is why if there is added compression to this region, the nerves may be negatively affected. For these reasons decompression has proven to be a valuable tool when when rehabilitating certain versions of back pain.
We utilize a top of the line DTS Decompression table that allows for specified weight, time, and body-region settings in order to personalize each treatment to your specific condition and body type. Unlike some decompression units the DTS has the ability to perform both lumbar and cervical decompression. This treatment is not solely for those suffering from low back pain, but neck pain as well!
Symmetry Health Center is one of the few facilities in the East Bay that offers Chiropractor prescribed and monitored decompression therapy. At Symmetry, helping our patients to achieve a pain-free state is the first step of many to achieving optimal health. Now that we have this incredible service at our Oakland and Alameda locations we are even more equipped to serve the needs of our East Bay community.
