Spinal decompression is a treatment alternative offered by a chiropractor. It gives you an option to surgery when chronic back pain is taking a toll on you. This treatment is beneficial in relieving pressure that can build up on your vertebrae if your spine is out of alignment. If your discs are bulging or have slipped out of the proper position, it can cause a great deal of pain. They may apply pressure to your nerves. Spinal decompression shifts your vertebrae, allowing discs to move back into place. Most importantly, portions of your spine will no longer feel like they are being crushed. It will allow your blood to circulate freely to your discs and vertebrae. When your treatment is over, you will have more ease in movement. It may take a series of treatments for the best results.
When is Spinal Decompression Recommended?
If you have had a fall or some type of trauma to your back that caused your vertebrae to become compressed, it can be quite painful. Spinal decompression could provide you with a source of relief. If you have discs that are herniated, this is a good way to make your back more comfortable. Sciatica is another condition that can be treated with spinal decompression. It occurs when a disc or vertebrae applies pressure to the sciatic nerve. This can cause serious pain in your back and down your leg. You may even find yourself dealing with tingling and numbness. Spinal decompression can help you to deal with sciatica effectively. Consider spinal decompression if the joints in your back are deteriorating.
All too often, people jump to surgery for back pain when there are non-invasive options. Spinal decompression is a simple and gentle procedure that could benefit you. When it is combined with other treatments, it can really work to improve your quality of life.
