Spinal Decompression Therapy
To better understand the how Spinal Decompression can help alleviate Back Pain and Disc-related pain, a brief overview of how your spine works is a helpful place to start.
You spine is composed of a column of vertebrae (bones) along with ligaments and spinal discs (think cushions) that keep it flexible. In the middle of this construction, your spinal column provides a nerve pathway.
A spine injury, or degeneration over time, can cause both locationally acute and radiated pain. Bulging Discs (when the disk is pushed out of alignment with the structure), Degenerative Discs (when the discs begin to wear out over time), Herniated Discs (where part of the disk impacts a nerve), Sciatica (damage to the sciatic nerve, often resulting in pain down the back of the leg), and Spinal Stenosis (the narrowing of spaces in the spine due to a number of potential factors) are some of the most common ailments that can benefit from Spinal Decompression therapy.
Spinal Decompression aims to relieve and remediate these conditions through the use of a mechanical traction device that gently ‘stretches’ your spine so that pressure is relieved and, in some cases, elements are able to reposition themselves into their proper places. By decompressing the spine, I effectively aim to relieve pressure on the neural elements of your spine, which reduces pain and, over time, can restore your quality of life and ability to resume an active lifestyle. As spinal conditions are complex by nature, this therapy is not for everyone. However, it has proved very effective for many of my patients so if you are experiencing back pain of any type, please contact me to begin the process of assessing your unique situation and viability for this treatment protocol.
