Spinal Decompression in West Valley City, Utah
Back pain does not have to become your new normal. If you live in or near West Valley City and are living with back pain, severe or moderate, our team of chiropractors at Peterson Chiropractic provide natural relief. Our chiropractor evaluates your back pain to discover the source. Some of the reasons for back pain that we typically see include sciatica, herniated discs, muscle injuries, spinal abnormalities and spinal misalignments.
How to Relieve Back Pain
Our chiropractors then use a variety of services to eliminate your back pain. These may include gentle adjustments to position your spine and then the use of another technique known as spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is a natural way to lengthen your spine and create more space between each vertebrae. As a result, nerve pain and pressure is reduced, herniated discs are able to return to their natural space and the spine learns to remain in a healthier alignment.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Chiropractic Care
Before you resort to surgery or reach for painkillers to alleviate your back pain, our chiropractors at Peterson Chiropractic would like to show you our non-surgical alternative. Non-surgical spinal decompression is a gentle and natural way to lengthen your spine and eliminate back pain, numbness and tingling that may extend in your arms and legs. Spinal decompression uses a table that moves you through a variety of positions. You are comfortable on the table and our chiropractor monitors the spinal positions as your spine is stretched and relaxed.
Through consistent treatments, your spine remains in the lengthened position. Your muscles are also stretched and relaxed and then are strengthened to support your spinal alignment. Each treatment lasts between 30 and 45 minutes and naturally stretches your spine. Our chiropractors may suggest spinal decompression as part of your complete chiropractic care plan. You may receive spinal decompression in combination with adjustments, physiotherapy and suggestions on ways to reduce back pain while you work and sleep. Spinal decompression is helpful for herniated discs, sciatica, and disrupted spinal nerves. You may be experiencing back pain from a genetic condition, overuse or an injury so our chiropractors determine if spinal decompression is beneficial for your condition.
