Can Spinal Decompression Help My Chronic Pain?

Could Spinal Decompression Help My Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain of the back and neck region is a common ailment affecting millions of Americans today. It lowers your productivity, makes daily chores almost impossible, and can wreak havoc on your social life. It gets worse because there is no cure for chronic back pain, it can only be managed. But what is the best way to get relief from the debilitating pain?

Most people do not know, but spinal decompression from a chiropractor is one of the most effective and safest ways to alleviate your suffering. What is spinal decompression and why is it an ideal treatment option for chronic pain.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment method which involves stretching the spine to create space between the vertebrae which releases pressure and tension in the spine. The increased space in between the vertebrae and reduced pressure relieves the nerves in the area and allows bulging discs to return to their normal positions, thus reducing pain and discomfort.  When the disc is decompressed it creates a negative pressure inside the disc and a positive pressure outside the disc which in turn creates a suctioning of the disc materials. 

Decompression of the spine encourages the circulation of nutrients into the disc area, thus promoting natural healing of any affected disc.  The procedure is a painless, quick and effective treatment method for people who have bulging discs, sciatica, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.

Requires No Medication 

A chiropractor does not work with medications, so rest assured this procedure will not leave you with a long prescription list of pain-relievers. Thus, you will save money that would have gone into buying expensive meds that do not guarantee relief while also facing potential harmful side effects.

It Is Safe

Decompression of the spine is completely safe for every individual regardless of their age or gender. Not only is it painless, but an experienced chiropractor will also perform the procedure without you feeling any pressure.

Fast Procedure and Recovery Time

The procedure takes only about 30-45 minutes, making it one of the quickest way to get relief from your back pain. Spinal decompression is fast and the recovery time is non-existent.
