The Many Benefits of Chiropractic Disc Decompression Therapy
Sufferers of herniated or slipped discs know how painful they can be. Even minor misalignments in the spinal column can result in major nerve system problems, leading to everything from sciatic pain to migraine headaches. The pain takes many forms, leaving sufferers in constant fear of what the next day may hold for them in terms of discomfort. For patients who need top-of-the-line treatment for disc-related ailments, disc decompression therapy could be the best option.
If you’ve been a long-term sufferer of spinal disc issues, Posture Works in Denver, CO and San Francisco, CA offers a state-of-the-art solution in disc decompression therapy. Our advanced technology uses computerized traction force to gently separate spinal segments and release pressure on bulging or herniated spinal discs, allowing them to once again re-align for better spine health.
What is disc decompression therapy?
The reason slipped or herniated discs are so painful is because they’re critical to spinal integrity. When a disc slides or ruptures, fluid from the disc damages surrounding nerves. A slipped disc will often cause trouble with balance and stability, in addition to back or neck pain.
Disc decompression therapy involves stretching the spine via a traction mechanism to allow discs to reset. This relieves pressure on the affected discs, allowing nutrients to flow freely through spinal nerves. This therapy is used to both relieve pain and restore mechanical and functional aspects of spinal discs.
Why should I opt for disc decompression therapy?
One worry that many patients have is that the process of stretching the spine will be painful. But far from the images of medieval torture, our patients find the process very relaxing. In fact, many patients find it so soothing that they fall asleep during their sessions!
We’ve also found this therapy to be very effective. Patients who have been suffering for years have reported that disc decompression therapy has helped them immensely. More than just taking our patients’ words, however, we confirm this through looking at X-rays of the spine, which often show strong rejuvenation of disc health. When that happens, positive wellness outcomes can include:
- Alleviation of back, neck, and shoulder pain;
- Reduced feelings of tension and an increase in energy levels;
- More restful sleep;
- Better balance, mobility, and stability.
Perhaps the biggest benefits of this therapy are its relative low cost and low risk when compared to surgery. Disc decompression therapy – or any chiropractic adjustment – is a natural, conservative, non-invasive treatment. We even guide our patients to make lifestyle changes to accompany spinal adjustments, so that you see long-term results.
