Spinal Decompression with our Crofton Chiropractor

Man suffering from back pain

The health team at Capitol Rehab of Crofton uses a combination of natural treatments to alleviate your back and neck pain. If you have suffered an injury and your back pain is recent or if you have been struggling with back pain for years, we invite you to speak with Dr. Shaun McClenney, our chiropractor in Crofton. After a thorough spinal evaluation to discover the source of your discomfort, Dr. McClenney determines whether non-surgical spinal decompression will improve your condition. Some of the conditions of which non-surgical spinal decompression is effective for include:

  • Postural concerns such as years of poor posture, unstable posture or spinal abnormalities such as scoliosis which are causing lower back pain.
  • Sciatica which is a nerve compression in your lower back that appears as lower back pain, limited mobility and tingling sensations in your legs.
  • Herniated or bulging discs between the vertebrae that are interfering with nerve signal flow and can cause pain and muscle weakness.
  • Degenerating disc disease which also affects the discs between the vertebrae as gravity and time press down on the discs.
  • Spinal stenosis in which the vertebrae are shifting out of position and pressing on nerves.

Benefits of Non-surgical Spinal Decompression in Crofton

The goal of non-surgical spinal decompression is to alleviate the pressure on the discs between the vertebrae. This technique also reduces nerve pressure and can help to straighten your spine. You lie on a table and a computerized program, arranged by our chiropractor in Crofton, manipulates your spine through intervals of stretching and relaxing.

The DRS Protocol stands for decompression, reduction, stabilization. We decompress the weight on the discs which open up the space between the vertebrae. This lengthening of the spine is done gently. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes and improves your spine's stabilization which reduces back pain and restores your mobility. As the discs and nerves are freed from pressure, you also have less tingling sensations in your arms and legs.

Non-surgical spinal decompression is not invasive and does not use medications. Instead, it is a natural way to lengthen your spine and reduce your back pain. We may also suggest that you work with our physical therapist following your spinal decompression treatments to learn strengthening and stretching exercises that will keep your back in this lengthened position.
