It's no secret that back pain is one of the most common reasons that people see a chiropractor. At Chiropractic Wellness Center in Humble, we specialize in providing our patients with relief from back pain through spinal decompression therapy.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, drug-free treatment that can effectively address many forms of back pain, including herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and sciatica. This therapy aims to relieve the pressure on the spine that is causing pain.
How Spinal Decompression Works
During a spinal decompression therapy session, you will lie on a special table. The table will then gently stretch and relax your spine, relieving the pressure causing your pain. This therapy is usually done over a series of sessions and most people report feeling pain relief after just a few treatments.
Conditions That Can Be Treated with Spinal Decompression
As we mentioned, spinal decompression therapy is effective in treating many different types of back pain, including:
When a disc in your spine becomes herniated or ruptured, it can create pressure on the nerves around it and cause pain. Spinal decompression can relieve this pressure and provide back pain relief.
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is a condition that occurs when the discs in your spine begin to break down. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. Spinal decompression can relieve the pressure on the discs and improve your symptoms.
Sciatica is a condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed. This can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the legs. Spinal decompression can relieve the pressure on the sciatic nerve and relieve these symptoms.
How Spinal Decompression Therapy Is Performed
The spinal decompression procedure is simple. You will lie on a comfortable table and the chiropractor will attach special straps around your waist and legs. The table will then gently stretch and relax your spine, relieving the pressure that is causing your pain.
