Spinal decompression is a group of chiropractic therapy methods that non-invasively alleviate built-up pressure along the spine. Each therapy works well and is even better when combined with other decompression therapies.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
The spinal column is woven with vertebrae, discs, ligaments, nerves, and soft connective tissues. When these components compress with time and activity, spinal factors get twisted and pinched, causing pain.
When our chiropractor administers spinal decompression therapy, the vertebrae, discs, and other components begin to separate slightly and gently release pressure, free pinched nerves, increase critical blood flow, and relieve pain. Soon, you will feel relaxed and more at ease. These are the chiropractic therapies that fall under spinal decompression:
- Heat therapy
- Cold therapy
- Electrical nerve stimulation
- Ultrasound therapy
- Spinal manipulation
- Stretching and strengthening exercises
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
This non-surgical approach involves gently stretching the spine to create a negative pressure within the discs, promoting the retraction of herniated or bulging material and facilitating the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the affected area. Further health benefits that spinal decompression improves include the following:
- Bulging discs
- Degenerative discs
- Pinched nerves
- Spinal stenosis
- Injured nerve roots
- Mobility and function
Chiropractic Conditions and Spinal Decompression Therapy
Nearly all chiropractic care conditions may benefit from spinal decompression. Soft connective tissues are responsible for the largest part of what causes pain. The relief is almost instantaneous when spinal decompression releases pressure and grip on those soft tissues. To give you an idea, these are a few chiropractic conditions aided by spinal decompression:
- Jumper’s knee
- Tennis elbow
- Heel spurs
- Calcified fibroblasts
- Myofascial trigger points
