Clermont chiropractor Dr. Kurtis Michaux has helped hundreds of patients in the 34711 area overcome low back pain, sciatica, and herniated disc pain through non-surgical spinal decompression treatments. This FDA-approved back pain solution has revolutionized the way we treat back pain by enabling internal healing within the spine, particularly within the intervertebral discs that can sometimes become damaged over time, or through an injury. In this blog, we explain how decompression works and how patients can benefit from this comfortable treatment.
Many people have compared spinal decompression to traction treatments, but decompression is far more targeted. Traction and decompression both work by reversing the force of gravity on the spine, using it to stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the discs. Through a series of gentle stretches and releases the damaged, herniated disc that may be causing low back pain or sciatica, is relieved.
Usually, Dr. Michaux recommends decompression in conjunction with other chiropractic therapies for the most comprehensive healing. Combining spinal adjustments to correct postural alignment with decompression, nutritional counseling, therapeutic exercise and other physiotherapy modalities can give patients who have been in pain for a long time a new lease on life.
