Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Effective for Personal Injury, Car Accident Injury, and Herniated Discs

Have you endured pain from Personal Injury, Car Accident Injury, Sports Injury, Herniated Discs, Sciatica or problems related to your age or overall health? Our non-surgery spinal decompression chiropractic therapy can ease your pain. Dr. Jon Mills has been using the technique as an effective alternative to surgery in Colleyville, Texas since 2003. Each visit begins with a consultation, evaluation and examination to determine the cause of your pain and the most effective method to correct it, at which time Dr. Jon Mills, member of the American Chiropractic Association, can determine if decompression will work for you.

Spinal decompression chiropractic therapy is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that is used to provide back pain relief and to nurture patients with disc injuries and other spinal aliments. Dr. Mills’s FDA approved decompression table is used to target specific parts of the spine – mainly the compressed disc – and restore health to the spine. The table carefully moves and applies pressure in varying degrees, allowing the spine to elongate and create space between the vertebrae.

Why use Spinal Decompression Chiropractic Therapy for Pain Management?

Spinal disc problems sustained as a result of an automobile accident or similar incident can cause tremendous back and neck pain and discomfort. Herniated discs, bulging discs, pinched nerves, sciatica and degenerative disc disease can all be linked to the pressure placed on your discs due to injury or misalignment. The stretching allows herniated discs to shift back into their proper placement between the vertebrae. In addition to being restored to their proper positioning, the discs are also restored with fresh supplies of oxygen, water and essential fluids which enhance their ability to heal.

Patients with compressed discs can suffer from several problems. In some cases, the bulging portion presses on a nerve and causes pain – either in the back or neck, or extending down the arms or legs. Discs can also become brittle, leading to further pain and damage. A compressed disc is also unable to get a good flow of nutrients, which can severely restrict the healing process.

Spinal decompression treatment can alleviate pressure and allow your body to begin to heal itself. As your disc returns to normal, your back and neck pain will ease as well. This treatment is non-invasive, pain-free, and very safe.

FDA approved Decompression Traction System (DTS) treatment may provide the relief for which you are searching. DTS is a safe, non-surgical chiropractic treatment to help in the management of serious low back and leg; as well as neck and arm pain.
Clinical results indicate that an average of eighty-six percent of patients treated achieve relief, particularly those suffering from common causes of neck and low back pain. Many of the common causes of low back pain may be related to a form of compression within the spine. Decompression is a direct, intuitive remedy and unlike other treatments, it can focus its effect at the source of the pain.

DTS has the ability to immobilize the upper and lower portions of the body, and then gently apply a controlled therapeutic traction. This chiropractic treatment is directed at relieving pressure on structures that may be the cause of pain. The system helps relieve pain through decompression of the lumbar or cervical discs and joints, which are unloaded through distraction and positioning. This cyclical, painless stretching reduces pressure and promotes blood and fluid flow. This in turn, improves the healing process naturally. Patients are given a thorough exam and diagnosis as to their suitability and prognosis. Some conditions and patients are not candidates. The doctor will make that determination for you.
