SALT LAKE CITY SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC BACK PAIN AFTER AN ACCIDENT
Back pain is a common problem for people who were injured in car accidents, slip-and-falls, or other types of personal injury accidents. Decompression therapy is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that can provide you with long-term relief.
It has been used to treat several types of injuries that commonly occur after car accidents, including:
- Damaged nerve roots
- Herniated (slipped) discs
- Damaged joints
- Neck and back pain
- Posterior facet syndrome
Spinal decompression is one of the treatments offered by the skilled chiropractors at P.I. HELP in Salt Lake City. Call us today at (801) 383-2483 for immediate medical assistance after an accident.
WHAT HAPPENS IN SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY?
The purpose of spinal decompression is to stretch the spine in order to take pressure off the spinal discs. Spinal discs are rubbery pieces of cartilage that separate each vertebra. These discs absorb shocks to the spine and prevent them from rubbing up against each other.
Spinal decompression does not require any incisions or medication. You remain fully clothed during the treatment while a doctor places two harnesses on your back. You then lie down on a motorized table that will be moved around to stretch the spine as needed. After several decompression treatments, your spine should be stronger and blood flow throughout the body should improve.
START YOUR RECOVERY TODAY
You should seek medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident, even if you do not feel any pain right away. Injuries do not always manifest painful symptoms when they first occur; it can take days or weeks for symptoms to begin. This is why you will want to have a medical professional examine you for hidden injuries so that you can begin treatment as soon as possible. At P.I. HELP, we offer free transportation to and from our clinics, so contact us today to get started on your recovery.
