Suppose you have an injured disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or any other issue that affects your nerves or nerves in your back. In that case, spinal decompression may be the best treatment for you. Pain relievers only help you temporarily avoid pain and surgery but can lead to health complications later in life if not properly utilized. That is why our team at Tri-Health Orthopedic & Sports Institute in Cincinnati is committed to providing you with the quality care you need for full, non-invasive relief from your neck or back pain with spinal decompression.
What Is Spinal Decompression
Our chiropractor performs spinal decompression as a non-surgical procedure. It consists of having you lay on a specialized table. We will connect you to a machine that will simultaneously facilitate your back to move in two different directions. As half of your body moves downward and the other half moves upward, the vertebrae in your back are separated. The machine regulates the level of tension you receive to implement the precise decompression needed for your spine.
How Spinal Decompression Helps
The discs in your spine are circular cushions of cartilage filled with fluid that keeps your vertebrae from rubbing against one another. It is not uncommon for trauma to cause a disc to slip out of its protective position. Occasionally, a disc will lose its fluid, making the vertebrae come in direct contact with each other. It is also possible for discs to degenerate or dehydrate, causing them to not function as adequality. If this happens to you, it is essential to immediately see us for treatment.
Spinal decompression gently lengthens your spine so that discs can find their way back into proper alignment. It may take more than one treatment session for the spine to fully realign. Still, spinal decompression can significantly reduce or eliminate chronic back and neck pain caused by pressure on the discs with enough treatment. It can also ensure that blood flows throughout your back more freely, which provides your discs with more blood. As a result, an injured disc will receive the nutrient it needs to heal more optimally and quicker. It can also relieve nerve-related pain.
