Back pain is a fact of life for many Americans. The pain can be caused by herniated discs, compressed nerves and sports injuries. Depending on your back injury, spinal decompression may be able to lower your pain and restore your mobility.
Decreases Pressure on Nerves
Non-surgical spinal decompression increases the spaces between the discs. When the spaces are at their optimal distance, it can relieve the pressure from pinched and compressed nerves, which results in decreased back pain and improved function of the central nervous system.
Heals Herniated Discs
Herniated discs occur when a portion of the disc slips or bulges out of place. This can put pressure on the nerve roots and soft tissues in the back, creating pain, loss of range of motion and muscle weakness. Since the discs are bloodless, they are difficult to heal without medical intervention. When the spaces between the discs are increased, it gives the herniated discs the room they need to retract into their proper positions and refill with fluid.
Herniated discs and compressed nerves can result in sciatica. This is a debilitating condition that causes lower back and leg pain. In severe cases, it can result in weak leg and back muscles, which can decrease your ability to walk. Non-surgical spinal decompression can reduce your pain and improve your mobility so that you can get back to leading an active, healthy lifestyle.
Our chiropractor in Roseville offers non-surgical spinal decompression for patients suffering from herniated discs, sciatica and back pain. Non-surgical spinal decompression is performed on a decompression table. You will be attached to the computer controlled pulley system via a belt and cable. During your decompression session, your spine will be gently stretched in order to increase the spaces between the discs. Sessions last between 20 and 45 minutes.
