Having a herniated disc can make it difficult for you to do everyday activities. The back pain caused by this ruptured disc can limit your movements, and you might also experience other symptoms, such as pain in your leg or arm, weakness and tingling. While surgery is an option to relieve pain, it can cause serious complications. For a non-invasive form of treatment, consider having nonsurgical spinal decompression done.
Spinal decompression is a type of chiropractic service that involves stretching your spine in order to ease pressure on your injured disc. This stretching process results in negative pressure on the affected discs, which helps relieve symptoms of herniated discs. Spinal decompression helps reduce swelling in these discs, which eases inflammation in surrounding nerves. This process also helps promote healing in the injured disc by ensuring that nutrients can reach it.
During spinal decompression, you will be lying on a table with a harness around you to hold you in place. Our Clermont chiropractor carefully adjusts settings during the decompression process to gently stretch your spine. This is a noninvasive process that should not cause you to feel any discomfort. Depending on your condition, we might recommend having decompression done several times over a certain period of time. We might also recommend having other treatments done to enhance the effects of decompression, such as spinal adjustments.
If you are coping with ongoing pain from a herniated disc, please contact our Clermont chiropractor for an appointment. We will evaluate your spinal disc problem and recommend treatment for pain relief. We serve patients in Clermont and the surrounding areas, including Davenport, Oakland, Montverde, Minneola, Kissimmee, Groveland, Mascotte, Windermere, Four Corners, Leesburg and Winter Garden, FL.
