San Antonio Chiropractor Offers Spinal Decompression For Back Pain



SAN ANTONIO, Texas (September 20, 2010) - Dr. Donald Phillips is offering an affordable and painless treatment for people who suffer from back pain due to injury or stress.

According to Dr. Phillips, spinal decompression treatments are usually completely painless and he reports that some of his patients actually fall asleep during the procedure.

Whether back pain is the result of sciatica (pressure on the sciatic nerve), a sports injury or work related accident, people may want to consider spinal decompression as one of their treatment options.

One of the benefits of spinal decompression treatment is that it does not involve painful surgery, or require the use of potentially addictive pain killers.

According to Dr. Phillips spinal decompression can cost just a fraction of what other surgical methods or back pain regiments cost.

He adds that the average patient usually requires between 12 and 20 spinal decompression treatments administered over a period of a few weeks to make major improvements in his/her condition.

But people will need to consult with their physician to determine the exact length of their spinal decompression treatment.

Dr Phillips recommends that it is vital to also address the issue of core strengthening and conditioning along with spinal decompression for long lasting and successful results.

Core strengthening exercises tailored to a specific back injury will help to ensure long term back pain relief.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

When a person undergoes spinal decompression treatment he/she is strapped to a table that reclines while a strap gently pulls on a belt around the waste.

A computer controls the tension on the belt and the movement of the table while targeting the pain.

Spinal decompression therapy works by giving injured discs room to heal. With increased spaces between the vertebrae decompression therapy creates discs that are relieved of pressure and are able to “breathe” so to speak.

More Benefits of Spinal decompression include:

Back Pain Relief – Increased spacing between the vertebrae may help to alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Improved Circulation – increased spacing of you vertebrae allows for better blood flow to help with spinal healing and facilitate pain relief

Relieves joints – relieving pressure on the spine will also serve to relaxed attached joints.

Lengthens muscles and ligaments - spinal decompression helps to counteract the effect that gravity has on your muscles and ligaments.
