Chiropractic care that utilizes spinal decompression is highly successful in treating a multitude of spinal injuries and ailments. It is beneficial for individuals with bulging, herniated and compressed discs, or patients who are suffering spinal injuries after a car accident. This non-invasive treatment option can also successfully alleviate the pain caused by sciatica.
Here at Michaux Family Chiropractic, we provide spinal decompression and traction services along with chiropractic adjustments.
Spinal decompression is used in chiropractic care to gently lengthen the spine and reduce the symptoms of bulging and herniated discs. Additionally, decompression of the spine can treat sciatica, back and neck pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, and radiculopathy.
During the decompression session, the patient is placed on a specially designed chiropractic table that can be adjusted along multiple axes. With the help of the table, the spaces between the vertebrae are increased. This takes the pressure off of bulging and herniated discs and allows them to move back into their proper positions.
Spinal decompression reduces back and extremity pain, numbness and burning sensations due to pinched and irritated nerves, muscle weakness, limited movement issues and back and extremity weakness.
Many individuals with back pain turn to decompression to avoid back surgery, and it is successful in eliminating the need for surgery for many of our back pain patients. Because there is no surgery involved when chiropractic care is used to decompress the spine, recovery time is significantly shortened. The need for pain killers and steroid injections is eliminated, and with multiple sessions, the bulging and herniated disks begin to heal and remain in place, which provides long term pain relief and increases the spine’s range of motion.
Would you ever consider seeing a chiropractor to decompress your spine and relieve your back pain?
