Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression

Decompression

The spine is made up of vertebrae with discs that allow for movement. Because there are nerves that run throughout this column, the sponge-like discs are designed to protect both nerves and vertebrae from becoming exposed to jolts, accidents, and other everyday causes. Regular activity can also wear out the spine, causing the discs to seep out of alignment. This can cause the nerves to be exposed causing pain to the back, neck and hips and making movement difficult.

Spinal decompression is a therapy that gently pulls the affected area, increasing the space between the vertebrae. If you have ever experienced back pain, it is common to lean toward the area that hurts, instead of pulling away. This only intensifies the pressure against the nerves, making the problem even worse. Blood flow is limited and the discs become even thinner from pressure.

Spinal Decompression

With spinal decompression, the discs are allowed free movement to slide back into place, or at minimum, have the opportunity to increase blood flow needed to begin the healing process. Proper alignment has also been seen to occur as the spine is guided back to its original stance. The body is amazing in its ability to heal itself when placed under the right circumstances. The procedure is simple and not painful as the spine is stretched at just the right angle, weight and time, relieving pressure from the painful area. Blood flow is allowed to increase, nutrients are replenished, and cellular waste is allowed to be expelled.

A technically advanced type of spinal traction, known as spinal decompression, enables the spine to begin a healing process without invasive surgery or habit forming drugs. With more and more of the population entering retirement, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and Sciatica, are becoming a huge problem. Years of strain on the back, old injuries and improper posture, are driving individuals to clinics in search of pain relief. While it is only natural to want pain to dissipate instantly, the gradual technique of spinal decompression is the natural way to alleviate pain, begin healing, and provide a healthy spine for many years to come.
