How Spinal Decompression Works

 

It is important to treat spinal compression early to prevent the condition from worsening and reducing mobility. Decompressing the spine can improve pain and promote healing of affected musculoskeletal tissues near the spine. Treatment is performed using a traction technique to gently stretch, decompress, and align the spine. Traction takes the pressure off the spinal or intervertebral discs causing bulging or herniated discs to retract.

 

 

When properly done, spinal decompression helps relieve pain, reduce inflammation, increase oxygen and blood flow, and improve mobility. It can also help avoid the need for surgery. Chiropractic care aims to treat the underlying cause of the condition to provide long-lasting relief rather than treating the symptoms—as is the case when pain medications are prescribed.

 

 

 

 

How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?

 

There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.

 

When vertebrae shift out of place, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow, our nerves, our immune system, and our minds cannot function at their highest peak.
