Spinal Decompression and Laser Therapy
With Action Spine & Joint in Nashville
Non-surgical options to improve your health and reduce your pain!
Alleviate your pain with effective solutions
Chiropractic is about so much more than ‘cracking bones.’ At Action Spine & Joint, we look at the bigger picture. When traditional chiropractic services will work, that’s our course of action, but some patients need something a little different.
That’s when your choice of chiropractic matters most! You need a doctor who will consider all the treatments available before determining that one treatment plan is best. What works for someone else may not be the thing that gets you back on your feet. We are often able to treat patients with a variety of methods that keep them out of a cold, scary operating room.
When a patient can walk out of our office in less pain than they’ve been in and know with complete confidence that their treatment will work, thereby avoiding the chance of a lengthy surgery and recovery, we call that a great success!
Spinal decompression therapy is one of the many services offered by Dr. Casey Bearden at Action Spine & Joint in Nashville. In our office, we frequently treat patients from many of the surrounding suburbs and communities, including Sylvan Park, Forest Hills, Bellevue and many more!
Creates negative pressure between the vertebrae allowing the bones and discs to retract or reposition themselves gradually and gently. As we carefully stretch the spine, it has a chance to realign itself in an organic way, even reducing the amount of traditional chiropractic treatments you may need.
Choosing Chiropractic Spinal Decompression
In chiropractic spinal decompression, special attention is given to stretch and relax the spine in controlled movements. Patients who choose this service will be fully evaluated to ensure that they are capable of withstanding such a hands-on approach.
Most patients feel relieve from pain during or immediately after a treatment and report no pain from the treatment, so you will need to let us know if you experience discomfort during your procedures, as this could be a sign that, although you are an excellent candidate, spinal decompression may not work well for you.
In this case, Dr. Bearden and the rest of our team will work even harder to develop a treatment plan that will work for your unique needs.
Low Light Laser Therapy
What is LLLT?
Low light laser therapy, sometimes referred to as LLLT, is another spinal treatment that gives us a way to help patients avoid back surgery while effectively treating their back pain. The science behind laser therapy is amazingly simple, yet it is not a practice that is understood and effectively practiced by every Nashville chiropractor.
Some of the other conditions Action Spine & Joint can treat with laser therapy include the following:
- Carpal tunnel
- Plantar fasciitis
- Stress injuries
Positive Effects of Laser Therapy
There are many benefits of LLLT. First, it allows your body to heal naturally at every level. Second, it kicks the body’s ability to produce disease-fighting antibodies into a new gear.
Once you begin your treatment, you’ll enjoy all these benefits. Your condition can improve drastically in a matter of one or just a few visits.
Additional Benefits of Laser Therapy
In addition to optimizing your healing, you will also see the following things happen within your body:
- Boosts metabolism – Laser therapy activates the body’s systems at a cellular level, so normal bodily functions, specifically metabolism, are optimized.
- Improves circulation – Blood vessels widen and are able to carry more blood at a time after an LLLT treatment. You’ll feel better and have more energy as a result. Your digestion and stomach issues may also improve.
- Relieves pain – Regardless of the area that is being treated, you may experience relief from long-term or acute pain during your first laser therapy session.
- Increases clotting – As a treatment for wound care, this is an extremely important benefit. Diabetics and others with autoimmune diseases will enjoy this positive side effect.
A doctor may refer you to laser therapy for any number of reasons. Dr. Casey Bearden has patients from all over the Nashville area and beyond who have wound up in our office because they are resistant or unwilling to treat their condition with medication, when they want to accelerate healing, or when they cannot tolerate more aggressive treatments.
