Spinal Decompression Provided by Our Chiropractor
Lower Cape Chiropractic in Orleans, MA, and neighboring communities offer spinal decompression as a back pain and neck pain treatment. However, before agreeing to this treatment with our chiropractor, you must know what is happening. Read below to discover more.
How it Works
Our practitioner will situate you on a table during a spinal decompression session. Then, our practitioner will connect you to a device pulling half of your body downward and the other upward. As a result, the vertebrae will separate from the discs, allowing the discs to recover without stress.
We use this particular treatment to help heal herniated discs or relieve pain when you have a bulging one. In addition, we've used it on patients who suffer from sciatica or require other back pain treatments. It allows that specific portion of your back to heal.
Spinal decompression can loosen your stiff muscles when used as a whiplash treatment. Ultimately, this treatment will restore nervous system function in the area. It can often reduce your pain.
Our decompression therapy is safe whether you need neck or back pain treatment. The care isn't known to cause many side effects, which tend to be temporary and fade over time. They may include pain, soreness, or spasms.
Before you receive any chiropractic treatment in our office, our practitioner will thoroughly evaluate your health through a comprehensive medical history report. Our chiropractor will also conduct a physical exam. All of this gives us enough insight to increase the risk of you developing any side effects from the treatment.
Uses of Spinal Decompression
One of the more common uses of spinal decompression is for a herniated disc, which occurs when the contents of the disc seep through an opening in a disc. The contents will then pressure the nearby nerves and soft tissue, leading to pain.
We might use it for a bulging disc, which happens when the spinal disk's contents press on the disc's shell. When this occurs, it's because of the weakness of the shell that may have arisen due to age.
