Back pain is a common issue that plagues both men and women across America. Some patients experience only minor pain, while others suffer from severe pain that interferes with their daily lives. Fortunately, the answer to back pain doesn’t always have to be surgery or painkillers. Instead, our chiropractic care offers natural and non-invasive relief, among other benefits. At Health on Earth Wellness Center LLC, our team provides effective relief to reduce back pain and prevent it from reoccurring in the future through spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression is a natural treatment that doesn’t involve medications or invasive procedures. This treatment requires no incision and no recovery time. Plus, there’s no risk for pain or infection.
With this treatment, our chiropractors can move the vertebrae in your back slightly enough to separate the discs in your back from the vertebrae. The process is relatively simple. You just have to lie on our specialized table. After we connect you to the device, it will gently pull on your spine in opposite directions. This reduces tension in the spine by realigning the vertebrae, causing the discs to no longer irritate the back.
Conditions Treated through Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression reduces inflammation and increases the healing process. Since you won’t have any obstruction, blood flow can more easily get through your spine and deliver the nutrients necessary for healing. Our chiropractors may recommend spinal decompression if you have general back pain. It’s also beneficial for patients suffering from bulging or herniated discs.
Our chiropractors often recommend this treatment for sciatica, a condition caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve or damage to it. As a result, patients experience burning, numbness, tingling, or pain in one portion or throughout the path of the sciatic nerve. In most cases, this issue will only affect one-half of your body. This means you may have symptoms that extend from your lower back and down one leg.
Our chiropractors advise patients to undergo spinal decompression for fibromyalgia. Specifically, we will recommend it if tests show you have cervical spinal stenosis along with your fibromyalgia. Spinal decompression could also be useful if you have degenerative disc disease. This is an issue that occurs when discs start to wear out over time due to age.
