Written By Arkansas Physical Health & Rehab on July 29, 2021

Spinal DecompressionLow back pain is a condition that plagues countless people and is responsible for missed days of work, loss of mobility, and decreased quality of life. Some people suffer with lower back pain because they fear that there is no solution except for invasive back surgery, but that is not the case. Relief could be as simple as a visit to the doctors at Arkansas Physical Health & Rehab. Spinal decompression therapy alleviates back pain and helps patients regain function without medications or surgery. The chiropractors at Arkansas Physical Health & Rehab offer spinal decompression in Fayetteville to help patients get the relief they need to get back to enjoying their lives. 

How Chiropractic Spinal Decompression Works

In many cases, low back pain is caused by the compression of nerves in the spine. Often, vertebrae or discs that cushion the vertebrae press down on the nerves, causing persistent low back pain. Other symptoms may accompany the back pain, including tingling that runs down the back of one or both legs and stiffness in the back. 

As the name suggests, spinal decompression helps to remove the pressure on the nerves so that the pain resolves. During treatment, Dr. Blair Masters, Dr. Daryl H. Lancaster, or Dr. Kody Chastain will gently stretch your spine to create space in the area of the compression. This stretching motion eases the pressure on the nerves and allows oxygenated blood and nutrients to flow into the area to help with healing. Your chiropractor may work on your back manually and may use other treatment devices, like a computerized table that helps to achieve a stronger stretch. Typically, multiple spinal decompression sessions are required to get the best possible results. 

Additional Therapies to Promote Healing

At Arkansas Physical Health & Rehab, the chiropractors typically combine spinal decompression with other therapies to promote faster healing and to maximize pain relief. Each patient receives a personalized treatment protocol that is tailored to their specific needs. 

Our chiropractors are trained to provide a wide range of treatments, including laser therapy, acupuncture, and rehabilitation, and they frequently combine these therapies with spinal decompression so that patients get the best outcomes.
