Tannenbaum Chiropractic: Back and Neck Pain Relieve with Spinal Decompression

Spinal pressure occurs from the moment you wake up and get out of bed until you lie back down to sleep. The spine and surrounding muscles are constantly working, holding up the body, housing the nerves that signal the body’s muscles, and controlling motor functions.

When not addressed, spinal compression can lead to chronic pain, herniated discs, nerve damage, and injury. It is critical to exercise in a way that supports core function and strength so that the spine is supported by muscle control. At the point when spinal compression becomes chronic pain, you may consider medical intervention or even surgery, but spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive alternative.

How Does Spinal Decompression Help?

Spinal decompression works to help alleviate pain, correct disc issues, and improve blood flow to the vital parts of the spine. Through reverse pressure and traction, chiropractors bring relief from pain caused by a variety of spinal issues:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Degenerative discs
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis

3 Ways Spinal Decompression Benefits the Spine

  1. Pain Reduction: Because the low back carries the bulk of your weight and any compression is worsened when you sit for long periods, low back pain is not uncommon (and is exacerbated by carrying extra weight). Compression can cause the different parts of the spine to become aggravated, increasing inflammation. Much of the pain centralized in the low back is due to inflammation surrounding injuries like bulged discs, herniated discs, or spinal misalignment.
  2. Correcting herniation: Constant strain and pressure on the connective tissue between the vertebrae can cause bulging and herniated discs. Disc issues are hard to treat due to their tendency to move toward the position of least resistance and least pain, which is usually the position of the herniation. With negative pressure through spinal decompression, the discs are given the space for realignment as well as for reduction in inflammation.
  3. Improve circulation: Spinal Decompression relieves pressure on the nerves and increases space between the vertebrae. When space increases, blood flow improves, bringing with it nutrients and oxygen that can help the discs heal and inflammation decrease.
