Spinal Decompression & Pain Management

Alleviate neck pain and back pain with ease!

It's 2am in the morning. You can't sleep because you have a headache, your back is killing you and your neck hurts. If you can relate to this scenario and you are experiencing back pain or neck pain combined with a headache, you may want to look into receiving the San Antonio Spinal Decompression treatment from Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition, and Wellness.

Before discussing the San Antonio Spinal Decompression treatment, you must understand where back pain and neck pain derive. Back pain or neck pain Can be caused by a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, or inflammation.

Back Pain

Back pain, neck pain, and headaches don't appear out of the blue. Your back, like any other mechanism in the world, will breakdown over time if it is used in an improper matter repeatedly. In other words, you may have lifted something heavy one time, but that just happens to be the final event in a series of bad lifting events that made the pain more noticeable.

For example, your back is composed of a spinal cord, nerves, bones, discs and muscles. Think of a zipper. If one tooth is out of line, the zipper doesn't function properly. Now think of your spinal cord as the zipper, and the teeth of the zipper as your vertebras (bones).Your back will not function correctly if a vertebra is disturbed. The disc separates each vertebra from one another, while the nerve holds the discs and vertebra together. When the disc slips, it puts pressure on the nerve and causes pain. This pain can radiate into the legs or arms. Some patients do not feel pain, but they will feel numbness or a tingling sensation.

Poor spinal health is often the cause of neck pain, back pain and migraines. The source of the illness varies. It could be from whiplash, a herniated or degenerative disc or spinal stenosis.

Whatever the origin, the pain can be alleviated through treatment that’s holistic and gentle. One such treatment is spinal decompression, which has helped many of our patients enjoy a life free of neck and back pain.

How does Spinal Decompression work?

Spinal decompression is noninvasive therapy in which your compressed vertebrae are stretched back into their correct position. This relives the pressure on your nerves that are the source of neck and back pain, and other discomforts, such as tingling or numbness. Spinal treatment is a core competency of chiropractic care and spinal decompression is one of your chiropractor’s most effective treatment methods. We’ve had patients who were told by other medical practitioners that they’d just have to learn to live with their pain for the rest of their lives, and who prescribed heavy duty prescription drugs as a pain management aid. They found relief here at Dr. Phillips' Chiropractic Spinal Decompression in San Antonio, often through spinal decompression treatment.

Dr. Phillip’s uses state-of-the-art, computer guided in-office spinal decompression that begins when you’re secured safely to the decompression table. He then carefully monitors your progress as you’re taken through a treatment session of repeated decompressions and rest periods. Your spine is subjected to traction that stretches it back into its natural position. The treatment’s gentle and painless, relieving the unhealthy pressure on the injured portions of your spine. Our patients often experience immediate relief from the pain that was caused by their pinched nerves.

The suctioning force of the decompression restores the injured discs to healthy functioning. It fosters improved circulation of oxygen and nutrients to the injured tissues, promoting healing. This lessens inflammation and relieves your low back, upper back and chronic neck pain. Your spinal health restored and your pain relieved, you’ll be able to return to resume your regular lifestyle.

At Dr. Phillips' Spinal Decompression in San Antonio we pride ourselves on helping our patients overcome their pain and the stress it causes, and get back to enjoying their lives.
