How Spinal Decompression Therapy with Your Las Vegas Chiropractor
Our back and spine are involved with virtually every physical move we make. The spine and nervous system are at the very core of who we are. Because of this, back pain can be extremely intrusive and dramatically reduce quality of life. Chronic back pain may make the sufferer feel like there is no relief in sight. All too many turn to prescription painkillers and surgical interventions as a last resort.
Summerlin Chiropractor Offers Expert Spinal Decompression Treatment
However, spinal decompression treatment by your Summerlin chiropractor offers a safe, effective and non-invasive alternative to these more extreme measures. Spinal decompression therapy is a form of chiropractic care that utilizes motorized traction technology to gently stretch out the spine to help address issues with the vertebrae and spinal discs.
The spinal discs are spongy areas of cushioning located between each vertebrae. Spinal decompression therapy changes the position and alignment of the spine to help correct any misalignments in these areas. This assists herniated or bulging discs in retracting and resuming a healthier configuration within the spine.
Relief For Bulging Discs, Ruptured Disc
This in turn takes pressure of the nerves within the spinal column. Since this contact with the nerves in the back is usually the source of back pain, when the discs are restored to their natural place within the vertebrae, back pain is often greatly reduced and in some cases eliminated.
With pressure relieved in the spine and spinal discs functioning more optimally, water, nutrients and oxygen are better able to flow into the discs and throughout the spine. This allows deeper healing and more positive spinal functioning going forward. The discs are rejuvenated, and the effects of degenerative disc disease can be relieved and reversed.
Spinal decompression allows your Las Vegas chiropractor to treat back and extremity issues such as:
- Lower, middle and upper back pain
- Neck pain
- Bulging discs
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Posterior facet syndrome (worn out spinal joints)
- Issues within the spinal nerve roots
What Happens During a Spinal Decompression Treatment?
During a spinal decompression session, the client is fully clothed and lays down on the decompression table. A harness is placed around the trunk and another on the pelvis. A computerized mechanism assists the chiropractor in customizing the spinal decompression treatment to your precise needs. Each session lasts less than an hour, and numerous treatments may be required to yield optimal benefits.
