Chiropractic is a non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach. Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to detect and correct problems in the spine, often before the patient is even aware they exist.
What is Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a term that describes the relief of pressure on one or many pinched nerves or neural impingement of the spinal cord. Spinal decompression can be achieved through surgical or non-surgical methods and is used to treat conditions that result in chronic back pain such as:
- Disc Bulge
- Disc Herniation
- Spinal Stenosis
- Isthmic and Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that has the ability to relieve back pain for patients. Spinal decompression is the act of gently stretching the spine that ultimately changes the position of the spine. The reason we want to re position the spine is because the spine in its current position is what is causing the back pain to begin with. Once we alleviate the spinal discs of of pressure, the bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off your nerves and other structures found in your spine. By creating negative pressure in the discs and alleviating the pressure, this promotes movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can finally begin to heal.
