What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves,
sciatica, and arm pain or leg pain can often be attributed to your spine
asserting pressure on your discs. Poor posture, bad body mechanics,
repetitive stress and acute injury can cause your vertebrae to compress
your discs or to slip out of alignment which then applies pressure to your
Compressed discs lead to two major problems: a bulge or herniation pressing
on a nerve; and brittleness of the disc. The problem is often perpetuated
because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients to itself which
is needed to heal.
Traditional corrective treatments include surgery or chiropractic
adjustment. Spinal Decompression Therapy is an alternative FDA approved
treatment option that has shown very good results.
Spinal Decompression Treatment is non-invasive and provides gentle
decompression of the disc through the use of a decompression table. You are
strapped to the table so that as it moves it applies a distraction force to
the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). A computer controls
the distraction force which is applied in between periods of relaxation.
This gently pulls the spine apart elongating it and creating a small vacuum
between the vertebrae which pulls the disc back into shape.
Much like a repetitive stress injury the decompression works in very minute
increments. But over time that adds up and lets the disc reshape itself,
heal and get the proper flow of nutrients going to fight off brittleness
and future injuries.
