A chiropractor administers spinal decompression therapy to help provide relief and alternative treatments, reducing the need for surgery or addictive pain medications. This chiropractic treatment helps alleviate pressure on the spine, return the spinal column to its natural position, and reduce pressure on nerves and soft tissue. This therapy helps reduce pain and provides accelerated healing after an injury.
Our chiropractors at Marianna Health and Wellness, P.A. in Marianna, FL, are ready to help you with your chiropractic care needs and discuss any questions about spinal decompression.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a chiropractic method to relieve back pain by stretching the spine and removing pressure on muscles, nerves, and soft tissues.
Why See a Chiropractor for Spinal Decompression?
The spine is the primary support for the body and has a series of vertebrae, with spinal discs and ligaments, helping keep the back flexible. Additionally, the spinal column is the nerve pathway that runs down the middle of the spinal column and can be affected when the spine is no longer straight or the bones add pressure to the nerves.
Spinal injuries or wear and tear to the spine can cause pain, especially when compressing and putting pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Decompression can help patients with spinal conditions, including compression, relieve stress, and ease pain.
What Conditions Does Spinal Decompression Treat?
Common reasons patients might seek spinal decompression treatment include bulging discs, degenerative discs, or herniated discs. Additionally, a patient experiencing pain, numbness, or tingling from a pinched nerve can benefit from spinal decompression treatment.
When there is damage to the sciatic nerve, known as sciatica, or spinal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spaces in the spine, spinal decompression can help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with these conditions.
