Chiropractic Exeter NH Spinal Decompression

Are you looking for spinal decompression in Exeter NH? You don't have to live in debilitating pain. Whether you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, radiating pain into the arms or legs, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs, spinal stenosis, and post-operative complications, as well as syndromes of the lumbar and cervical spine, Spinal Decompression may be for you.

Understanding Spinal Decompression in Exeter NH

Chiropractor Exeter NH Marc Steiner and Randi Steiner Spinal Decompression

This gentle, non-surgical procedure can provide lower back and neck pain relief, and sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art procedure for, bulging, herniated, or degenerative disc disease in the neck and lumbar regions.

The gentle distractive forces of the Spinal Decompression create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning, to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduate to a peak over a period of several minutes.

What Does a Treatment Plan Look Like?

Only cases with a high likelihood of success are accepted. To determine if Spinal Decompression Therapy is an option each patient will need the following:

  • A complete case history review
  • A thorough clinical spinal examination
  • Recent Digital X-ray and/or MRI

Most spinal decompression therapy plans consist of 12-24 visits over four to eight weeks.

If patients are also under chiropractic care, spinal decompression therapy and adjustments are performed on the same visit. Ideally, treatments are spaced at least 48 hours apart.

Upon successful completion of a spinal decompression treatment protocol, patients will have the option to continue on a maintenance program moving forward.
