Koukles Chiropractic Clinic offers spinal decompression as a safe alternative for chronic back and neck pain. Our Sterling Heights, MI utilizes state of the art equipment to provide spinal decompression to our patients.
Non-surgical spinal decompression can help relieve pain and restore more natural function. It also treats these symptoms by gently stretching the spine which changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal discs by creating negative pressure in the discs. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient- rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.
Doctors have used nonsurgical spinal decompression to treat:
Back or neck pain
Weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
Bulging or herniated discs or degenerative disk disease
Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome)
Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
Sessions last anywhere from 15-45 minutes depending on the condition and needs of each patient. It is recommended to have a treatment plan of 4 to 8 weeks to reach long term results, although some patients do decide to receive single treatments as desired. Dr. Koukles and Dr. Pohlen will monitor their patients throughout their treatment to ensure progress is being achieved.
