In fact, it is estimated that chronic back, neck, and leg pain is responsible for $100 billion in lost productivity in the United States each year. This debilitating pain is often a result of a degenerative condition such as sciatica, osteoarthritis, or spinal stenosis. However, the cause may be related to the way you sit, stand, and lift heavy object.

Thankfully, you can turn to the experts at Back on Track Chiropractic and Wellness
Centre for help. We can help you pinpoint the cause of your pain and, if necessary, treat it with spinal decompression therapy.

How Can Decompression Therapy Help You?

Fortunately, decompression therapy can help people who suffer from chronic pain, regardless of its underlying cause. Decompression therapy relaxes the muscles in your back, which reduces the pressure on the intervertebral discs and nerves near your spinal cord. This pressure lengthens your spine, enabling nutrients and oxygen to be easily transported through your spinal fluid.

Best of all, no surgery is involved in the process, and you are likely to experience immediate relief. Some patients are slightly sore after their treatment session.

Customized Precision

As a patient, it’s important to know that any procedure is customized to your individual needs. To ensure that you’re receiving the accurate amount of pressure for your body, we use computer technology to assess the amount of pressure that we’re applying so that we can make adjustments in real time. We’ve helped thousands of patients overcome their chronic pain through the use of this innovative technology.

What Patients Can Expect During Their Treatment

Patients report little discomfort during the treatment. In fact, during the treatment sessions, some patients even take naps. Also, if you’d like to remain awake, there are DVDs and soothing music available.

Although the length of your treatment session depends on the reasons behind your pain, they typically last about 30 minutes. Similarly, some people need only a few treatment sessions and others need several. To give our patients the best results, we apply different levels of decompressive force a total of about 18 times over the course of your treatment.
