We Can Treat Your Acute or Chronic Back Pain
Anyone who suffers from back pain knows how debilitating it can be. Sharp pains emanating from your spine can make it difficult to twist in your chair, turn your neck, or even get out of the bed in the morning. But Effective Integrative Healthcare can help. We have three convenient locations in Maryland – in Lanham, Crofton, and Millersville – where we can provide expert treatment of your ailments. In addition to comprehensive chiropractic care and functional medicine solutions, we provide inversion therapy to alleviate back discomfort. This form of treatment utilizes an inversion table to help realign your spine, reduce pressure on your nerves, and improve your blood flow. Though inversion tables are available for in-home use, it is critical to undergo inversion therapy under professional guidance, so call us today to learn more.
Understanding How Inversion Therapy Works
Inversion therapy is a technique that involves suspending an individual upside down to relieve back pain by stretching and decompressing the spinal column. By reversing the effects of gravity, this treatment eases pressure on the back and provides traction for the spine. However, it is important to seek the assistance of a professional for the best results. Our team will evaluate your condition to ensure you are a prime candidate for inversion therapy. Persons with high blood pressure or heart disease may have complications from such an approach. After a consultation, we will be able to advise you on the proper progression, length, and duration settings for your therapy to minimize the risk of injury and achieve optimal results.
What to Expect During Inversion Therapy
During inversion therapy at Effective Integrative Healthcare, our professionals will facilitate regimented sessions on the inversion table to help you experience relief. In many instances, you will only spend one minute at a time on the inversion table. At regular intervals, we will resume inversion therapy at various progressions. We may also extend the time you spend in an upside-down position. Typically, our patients experience immediate relief. However, in the days after treatment, pain may return. For that reason, consistency is key. We will outline an inversion therapy treatment plan specific to your condition to help ensure long-term results that persist even between sessions.
