Patients often visit a chiropractor in Ronkonkoma in order to treat conditions and ailments without undergoing surgery. At Connetquot Chiropractic, we offer a wide variety of services to help treat our patients and restore them to full health and mobility, all the while avoiding painful and expensive surgery. Some of the services we offer include chiropractic care, ligament laxity analysis, corrective exercise, lifestyle advice, nutritional counseling, postural screenings and more. One procedure performed by our therapists is spinal decompression therapy, a non-surgical, non-invasive decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy involves stretching the spine using motorized traction, changing the force and position of the spine while relieving built up pressure. Patients often lie on their stomach in order to receive this treatment. The therapy session lasts for approximately 30-45 minutes. Treatment plans vary by severity of the case but often require 20-30 treatments over a 5-7 week period. Spinal decompression therapy is used to treat the following conditions:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Bulging disks
- Herniated disks
- Posterior facet syndrome
- Injured/diseased spinal nerve roots
Spinal decompression, however, is not recommended for everyone suffering from back pain. For those who have fractures, tumors, abdominal aortic aneurysm, advanced osteoporosis, metal implants in the spine, or are pregnant should avoid spinal decompression therapy. A chiropractor in Ronkonkoma at Connetquot Chiropractic can let you know if this treatment option is right for you.
Should spinal decompression therapy not function properly to alleviate pain and other symptoms, surgical spinal decompression may be suggested as a last resort for bulging/ruptured disks, bony growths, and other spinal issues in order to fully address and correct the issue. One of our chiropractors will be able to determine this. In most cases, spinal decompression therapy is enough to reduce your overall condition.
