Spinal Decompression

Back Adjustment

Chronic back or neck pain can make it hard to do even the simplest of tasks. People often experience pain from conditions like bulging or herniated disks in the spine, placing pressure on nerves and other spinal structures. One way to help alleviate some of the discomfort is to add spinal decompression therapy to your individualized treatment program.

Nonsurgical or surgical spinal decompression can reduce the pressure on affected areas and allow you to move with ease. Dr. Fred Silveria can tell you how spinal decompression may facilitate your recovery.

What to Expect from Spinal Decompression

Patients may be eligible for nonsurgical or surgical spinal decompression therapy. Non-surgical spinal decompression involves the use of motorized traction to stretch the spine. This gentle procedure reduces pressure on and may induce retraction of herniated and bulging disks. With less pressure on the area, the body may continue with the healing process.

Surgical spinal decompression is used for those with more serious cases. This alternative may be suggested for those with bony growths or ruptured disks. Types of surgical spinal decompression include Corpectomy, Laminotomy and Diskectomy. Dr. Silveria will clearly explain your surgical options and help you determine which one may work best for you.

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression can complement a range of other therapies, such as massage therapy or acupuncture. This non-invasive therapy is often included as part of an effective treatment plan offering benefits like:

  • Improved oxygen, blood flow and movement of nutrients to an affected area, promoting healing.
  • Reduced pressure on injured disks often causing a retraction of bulging or herniated disks.
  • Decreased pressure on surrounding nerves and structures.
  • Being able to perform daily activities and exercises more easily.
  • Reduced pain in the back or neck.

Individuals may require a series of in-office treatments. Each session may last up to 45 minutes. Patients often experience less discomfort, inflammation and muscle tension soon after a session.

Surgical spinal decompression may be suggested depending on specific conditions and response to other therapies. There are inherent risks to any surgery which Dr. Silveria will explain. A patient may not feel immediate relief after surgery and may have to wait until the healing process is complete to notice a significant difference.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Don't normally write reviews but felt it was necessary in this case. Hurt my lower back and found Dr. Silveria online. Decided to give him a try and was VERY pleased with my visit! Dr. Silveria took the time to go over my x-rays in detail and explained in terms that were easily understandable. Adjustment went well and I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Silveria too all who suffer back pain. And I'm very glad I selected him as I now have a new chiropractor to visit when my back acts up!"

  • "It's been awhile since I've been here, because I have a condition that prevents me from chiropractic care at this time. However, the service has always been consistently awesome. They have these 2 amazing machines I wish I could own. You lay down on your stomach and certain parts of the table raise at different times. I don't know how it works so well, but it loosens things up, and provides some release and relief. Then when you get adjusted, you're always well primed, getting the most out of your visit.

    If price is a concern, talk to them. Dr S. is awesome about coming up with a payment plan and such. Very good group, and I highly recommend."

  • "Dr Silveris is a personal yet professional chiropractor. Before coming to his office I was terrified of chiropractors and skeptical of treatment. After my initial treatment I was sold! I don't visit him weekly as I don't need it, but do go about every month-and-a-half...or before taking a vacation so my body feels great and I can relax! I highly recommend trying his services!"
