Prodigy Chiro Care & Spinal Rehab Is Offering Spinal Decompression Treatment In Marina Del Rey
Prodigy Chiro Care & Spinal Rehab, a chiropractic clinic with locations in Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Culver City, and Brentwood, is offering the best non-surgical treatment for spinal decompression Marina Del Rey has to offer.
Spinal decompression is the technique of relieving the pressure on the spine to promote the movement of nutrients to the disks, the gel-like cushions between the bones of the spinal cord so that they can heal. Bulging and herniated discs put undue pressure on the nerves and other spinal structures, leading to intrusive pain, biting, and numbness in the body’s extremities. The theory behind spinal decompression asserts that by creating negative pressure in the spinal disks, the default force and position of the spine are restored.
During spinal decompression, the spine is gently stretched using specialized equipment called a decompression table. The patient lies down on the decompression table and is bound to it with a harness around their pelvis. A trained medical professional then controls the table and puts it through the motions depending on the patient’s needs. This session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. Doctors generally recommended around 25 treatments over the course of a couple of months for the procedure to yield its full benefits. The doctor may also prescribe medication such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to go along with the clinical spinal decompression treatment. The doctor may also recommend pairing the treatments with physical therapy, exercise, periods of rest, chiropractic adjustments, and acupuncture. Spinal decompression is one of the treatments that will be recommended by the professionals at Prodigy Chiro Care & Spinal Rehab to those looking for the best custom chiropractic treatment plans Marina Del Rey has to offer.
Prodigy Chiro Care & Spinal Rehab uses the Hill Laboratories Air Flex table that comes with an Auto-Flex feature to add more versatility to the decompression. The table has both manual and computer automated modes to give the doctor precise control over the treatment. The table has an Auto-Flex Control Panel with a wide range of functions such as Start/Stop, Emergency Stop, Cycle, Speed, and Stroke Depth Controls. The control panel allows the doctors at Prodigy Chiro Care & Spinal Rehab to set the exact speed and the number of treatment cycles. They also have complete control while the table is in motion to change the amount of flexion at any time. The Auto-Flex Control Panel is hinged for easy readability and allows the doctors to set the treatment time, traction poundage, and the rest and pull time.
The table also comes with an Auto-Distraction feature that adds programmable automatic decompression traction to the Hill Air-Flex. With ankle straps attached to the patient, the doctors can administer long-axis traction at specific poundage. The lower end of the table cycles in and out according to the parameters that the professionals enter into the control panel while the patient is secured to the table. During treatment, the table can also be locked in a lateral and/or flexion position.
Spinal decompression can be used to treat conditions such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, degenerative disk disease, worn spinal joints, injured or diseased spinal nerve roots, disc herniation, disc bulge, sacral iliac binding, lumbosacral compression, for providing flexion, decompression for the spinal stenosis regions, joint mobility, and nerve impingement. Some patients who suffer from conditions such as fractures, tumors, abdominal aortic aneurysm, advanced osteoporosis, and metal implants in the spine are recommended to not undergo spinal decompression treatment.
Apart from spinal decompression, the clinic also offers a range of other chiropractic services to patients suffering from back pain, neck pain, headaches, injuries sustained during auto accidents, injuries sustained during sporting activities, and those injured at their workplace. The clinic is headed by Dr. Carlos Rodriguez D.C. who has over 14 years of experience in his field.
