How Does Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Work?

How Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Can Benefit You

At Holistic Touch Medical Centers in Little Rock, we have seen firsthand just how effective spinal decompression has been for patients suffering from disc-related issues. Spinal decompression is a safe procedure that can be completed without causing any pain or discomfort. Our team is committed to providing patients relief from their herniated or bulging discs to maintain optimal wellness.

How Spinal Decompression Works

First, our chiropractor will ask you to lie on a table for this treatment and connect you to a specialized device. Once connected, the device will pull your spine in opposing directions. The force is gentle, preventing harming the delicate structure of your spine. However, the treatment is enough to separate the vertebrae and discs in your back from one another.

Conditions Treated with Spinal Decompression

Our practitioner may recommend spinal decompression if you have a bulging or herniated disc. With a bulging disc, you have a weakening in the lining of the disc, and the contents push up against it and cause it to bulge and irritate the nearby nerves and soft tissue. The decompression eases pressure on this disc as it heals. On the other hand, a herniated disc occurs when you have a tear in a disc, and the contents of it may seep out and irritate the tissue and nerves surrounding it. Spinal decompression therapy gives the disc space to heal.

Another use for spinal decompression is for people who have sciatica. Symptoms often include pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling in your lower back. The therapy relieves pressure on this portion of your back to alleviate the symptoms and promotes healing.

Health Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression takes the pressure off the sensitive discs in between the vertebrae. This allows damaged discs to heal properly without added pressure. Moreover, this chiropractic treatment doesn't require any medication, which means that you won't have to worry about any side effects. This treatment is non-invasive, so there's no risk of infection. When you opt for this treatment as opposed to medications, it can help alleviate the root cause of your pain or discomfort rather than just temporarily treating the symptoms.
