Spinal Decompression For Back & Neck Pain
Most people have probably heard of spinal decompression but not too many know what it is. If you suffer with chronic back pain or neck pain, it can have a major impact on your lifestyle. No one likes to deal with constant pain or aches. Some people have to resort to surgery in order to minimize the pain or discomfort they experience on a daily basis.
Spinal Decompression Treatments in Littleton
Spinal Decompression has grown in popularity of the years, due to it's effectiveness in relieving back and neck pain. Patients who have experienced bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica and even relapse have seen great success through spinal decompression.
Chiropractors use spinal decompression to painlessly reduce the pressure between the spinal discs. This nonsurgical therapy uses traction to slowly stretch the spine, separating the individual vertebrae. As the spine stretches, it removes the pressure from the discs between your spine, causing a vacuum to develop. This vacuum is what begins the process of healing. Bulging or herniated discs now have the opportunity to retract, which in turn takes the pressure off nerves in the spine. When this happens, water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids can now flow into the vacuum, relieving discomfort and promoting healing.
There are usually a series of decompression treatments needed to continually stretch and reshape the individual discs, depending on the condition or symptoms of the patient. Many people experience a great amount of pain relief during the treatments. The goal of spinal decompression is to reshape the injured discs of the spine so they can once again function normally. Each disc is a gel-like substance that sits between the spinal bones. They are supposed to act as cushions between the vertebrae. Because of this, a series of treatments will help the body to heal naturally, push oxygen and water into the discs, and help your back function properly once again.
