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.

 

 

 

Proper methods are applied when doing chiropractic massage. I make sure you feel the pressure and relief at the same time. Your back and other parts of your body might have been aching lately but you must not worry for too long since I am here to take care of it. You would feel less anxious after the process since you would already feel your body’s much healthier and lighter state.   

 

 

Heat and cold – experts may alternate ice and heat therapy to help patients treat back pain. Ice packs may be used to numb the lower back for ten to fifteen minutes and then switched to a heating pad, hot water bottle, or heat wrap to restore blood flow to the area and promote healing.
