General Information About Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression is a unique chiropractic treatment. First, our chiropractor will ask you to lie on a table for this treatment and connect you to a specialized device. Once on, the device will pull your spine in opposing directions. The force is gentle to prevent hurting the delicate structure of your spine. However, the treatment is enough to separate the vertebrae and discs in your back from one another.
Health Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression takes the pressure off the sensitive discs in between the vertebrae. This allows damaged or diseased discs an opportunity to heal without added pressure. Moreover, this chiropractic treatment doesn't require any medication, which means that you won't have to worry about any side effects.
This treatment is known to cause few side effects and is safe for most people. Plus, it's non-invasive, so there's no risk of infection. When you opt for this treatment as opposed to medications, you receive a treatment that's known to heal the underlying cause of the condition, rather than just alleviating symptoms.
Conditions Treated with Spinal Decompression
Our chiropractor may recommend spinal decompression if you have a bulging or herniated disc. With a bulging disc, you have a weakening in the lining of the disc, and the contents push up against it and cause it to bulge and irritate the nearby nerves and soft tissue. The decompression eases pressure on this disc as it heals. On the other hand, a herniated disc occurs when you have a tear in a disc, and the contents of it may seep out and irritate the tissue and nerves surrounding it. Spinal decompression therapy gives the disc space to heal.
Another use for spinal decompression is for people who have sciatica. Symptoms often include pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling in your lower back. The therapy relieves pressure on this portion of your back to alleviate the symptoms and promotes healing.
