Our Process

hq-process

Atlanta Decompression offers our patients the opportunity to improve their disc health without the need for invasive surgery or medication by using a method called spinal decompression therapy and our personalized back pain recovery process.

This process can be used to help treat any symptoms related to:

  • Neck/Back Pain
  • Numbness/Tingling in the Arms or Legs
  • Sciatica and Spinal Stenosis
  • Failed Surgery

 

1 Correct & Heal Disc

After the doctors have performed a careful examination to determine the source of the problem, the program can begin. Spinal Decompression Therapy works by comfortably tractioning the spine. This removes pressure from the affected discs and helps return them to their original shape and natural position. The therapy also provides a healthy fluid exchange to help nourish and heal the discs.

Pain and inflammation management are both important when treating the spine. While spinal decompression therapy is a typically a very comfortable procedure, a patient's pain dissipates gradually over a series of treatments.

Because the treatment is isolated to the spine, there is less risk of injury to the hips, ankles, and other areas of the spine as compared to other traction therapies.

2 Exercise Therapy

Strengthening musculoskeletal weakness is also a vital part of the decompression process, as this may have contributed to the injury in the first place.

To accomplish this, our team uses core stabilization exercises and unique isometric training. This strengthens the core and distributes weight more evenly across the spine, which maintains and builds on the gains made during spinal decompression therapy.

The doctors at Atlanta Decompression will assess your unique condition and tailor a personalized exercise program appropriate for your individual needs.

3 Nutritional Support

Proper nutrition is incredibly important to the recovery process. Getting the right vitamins and minerals can go a long way in helping your body to heal. It can also help you manage chronic symptoms by repairing and maintaining healthy tissue.

We may provide nutritional advice during your personalized program. We make available the proper supplementation to decrease pain, manage inflammation, and promote healing in the damaged tissues of the spine.

Our team also develops a nutritional plan to not only accelerate tissue repair but to also maintain healthy bone and joint function.

4 Massage Therapy

During the process of spinal decompression, it’s important not to ignore the soft tissues. In order to promote recovery of the spinal muscles, our team of massage therapists and doctors are ready to administer a series of therapeutic massages.

Aside from feeling great, massage therapy helps the body repair soft tissue. It promotes a higher state of mental and physical relaxation. Massage also relieves stress, encourages relaxation, and improves core flexibility. It’s even been known to help the body fend off disease through detoxification of waste and toxins.
