Our non-surgical, non-invasive spinal decompression in Minneapolis involves a motorized traction system that gently decompresses the spine. This therapeutic manipulation takes pressure off of nerves and other spinal structures, creating a vacuum phenomenon to bring the disc back into the joint.
The Sigma Adjuster method of chiropractic adjustment is FDA-cleared and used in more than 32 countries. The treatment takes less than 10 minutes using a computerized medical device that eliminates the guesswork of traditional chiropractic care for precise, effective therapy.
Too often, patients fear chiropractic care because they’re afraid they’ll leave worse than when they arrive, or they’re wary because of how aggressive and harsh treatment can look. Triage Wellness Institute offers fear-free treatment either by hand or with the Sigma Adjuster, which allows gentle, precise adjustments that will leave you with less pain and more flexibility.
This treatment uses the latest state-of-the-art technology to interact with the nervous system to maximize both neurological and muscular exercises and relieve pain.
Every Triage Wellness Institute treatment starts with a personal consultation. We’ll discuss all of your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. Your provider will also examine your spine and determine if spinal decompression will deliver pain relief and improved physical function. Then we’ll schedule your treatment session.
Before your spinal decompression appointment, we’ll make sure any questions you may have are answered and that you feel comfortable and confident in your treatment plan. Your specialist will then have you lay down on the motorized traction system, which will gently apply pressure to decompress your spine by bringing your discs back into their proper joints.
Depending on your needs, your appointment could take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. Once your decompression session is over, we will schedule any additional appointments as needed.
Our spinal decompression in Minneapolis does not require any injections or surgery, so you can return to your daily activities as normal.
Many patients can experience up to a year of pain relief following their last treatment session.
Clinical studies show that spinal decompression has proven to be effective in over 75% of patients who received treatment.
Whether it’s our spinal decompression in Minneapolis or any of our other chiropractic services, you can expect nerve and muscle pain relief with gentle, precise treatment sessions.
Yes. While some people are afraid of how aggressive traditional treatment may appear to be, there are actually very few risks with spinal decompression.
You may experience some soreness in the treatment area, but that is expected to subside within a day or so.
Though you may experience some stiffness or soreness, you should not experience any pain during or after treatment. If you do, you should contact your chiropractor immediately, as it may indicate other health issues.
If you are pregnant or have had a previous back injury, any type of spinal implant, or certain medical conditions that may make treatment dangerous, we do not recommend spinal decompression for treatment.
You may need spinal decompression therapy if you are experiencing back or neck pain, sciatica (pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg), bulging or herniated disks, degenerative disk disease, worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome), or injured or diseased spinal nerve roots.
