Benefits of spinal decompression therapy
Spinal decompression therapy is an effective way to get your spine back to its natural working state. It works by gradually stretching the compressed discs in the spine, while providing relief for pain and discomfort. This technique can help relieve pressure on nerves, muscles and ligaments while also improving your range of motion.
Spinal decompression therapy has been used for many years and is now one of the most popular forms of treatment offered by chiropractors. Before you decide to commit to a number of sessions, it’s important to do your research and find out all you can about this type of technique.
One of the best ways to learn more about spinal decompression therapy is from someone who has experienced it. If you’re not sure how many sessions you’d need, ask the chiropractor if they have any patients who can share their experiences with you.
Spinal decompression therapy provides a way for your spine to heal without drugs or surgery. These all-natural treatments will give your body time to gradually repair itself while also providing you pain relief and improved mobility. It’s an effective treatment approach that may help greatly improve your quality of life.
Common Issues That Spinal Decompression Can Benefit
A herniated disc is a very common back problem. This injury and the compression of the spinal cord through the vertebrae can be an extremely dangerous situation. It’s important to treat this condition as soon as possible in order to decompress the spine and avoid permanent nerve damage or paralysis. A lot of patients are told that therapy isn’t going to help them recover from a herniated disc, but it most definitely can with our decompression therapy treatment! This technique uses decompression tables to reduce pain by decompressing the disks in between each vertebrae. If decompression therapy isn’t used immediately after noticing changes in one’s mobility, swelling can occur near the affected area of the spine and cause serious damage.
Pinched nerves are a fairly common ailment that can be experienced by people of all ages, gender and race. Pinched nerves occur when there is too much pressure placed on the spinal nerves by surrounding muscles, bones or other tissues. When an individual experiences pain in their back, it may be due to trapped spinal nerve roots. The individual can usually remain symptom free until they are injured or stressed by a sudden motion or activity. Typically, spinal nerve roots can cause symptoms like shooting pain down the leg (a condition known as sciatica), loss of sensation in the area supplied by one or more spinal nerves and chronic pain where there is no evidence of trauma to explain its onset. When the pinched spinal nerve causes changes in sensation, it’s called a spinal nerve dysfunction. It can be caused by anything that decreases the space available for spinal nerves.
A pinched spinal nerve is most commonly associated with bulging discs or spinal stenosis. These can cause the pressure on the spinal nerves to increase. Other causes could be from disc herniations, tumors in the spinal canal called ‘neurinomas’, trauma (like spinal fractures) and spinal arthrosis. Your spinal nerve roots are responsible for carrying messages between the spine and the different parts of your body. It takes messages from your brain to your body, where they control how you move, feel touch, hear sounds etc.. Unlike other muscles in our bodies these nerves never rest; they continue to carry messages constantly while we’re awake or asleep. If spinal nerve roots become inflamed or irritated, they can cause pain that radiates into all different parts of your body including the arms and legs.
A spinal disc may rupture when it is subject to greater than normal stress conditions. Ruptures can also occur in spinal osteoarthritis, spinal spondylosis, spinal avulsion fractures or Scheuermann’s disease. Ruptured discs are usually associated with back pain but can be asymptomatic. Patients with spinal stenosis, secondary to a herniated disc, may also be present with neurogenic claudication. This can be due to the poor conduction of nerve impulses through the affected neural foramina (nerve root canal). The pathophysiology of these patients is thought by some experts to be caused by poor nutrition within the compressed nerves. This can result in denervation/reinnervation which causes relative motor paralysis and sensory loss and also causes the individuals symptoms.
Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective way to treat back pain
During the procedure, you are placed on an adjustable table while your specialist uses special equipment to gently stretch your spine. This process relieves pressure that results from bulging or herniated discs, pinched nerves or spinal curvature that causes sciatica. This procedure can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatment options. The process ultimately helps you achieve your best possible outcome in terms of relief and movement in your upper body.
