Whether due to injury, disease, poor posture, bad body mechanics or repetitive stress, all too often people find themselves suffering from bulging discs, herniated discs or degenerating discs – and all the discomfort that comes with them. Disc problems result in pain and discomfort ranging from uncomfortable to downright debilitating. Spinal decompression is designed to help alleviate the pressure on the disc, encouraging healing and relieving pain. At Henderson Wellness Center, we are your resource for spinal decompression in Henderson. We are here to help you get back pain relief, and we are ready to provide the necessary treatments to get you back in good health.
How Spinal Decompression Works to Relieve Pain
As your chiropractic clinic in Henderson, we are interested in treatments that work. We have found that spinal decompression can be used as a sciatica treatment, for herniated discs and to provide general back pain relief.
Spinal decompression, also known as non-surgical decompression therapy, is a non-invasive method for stretching the spine to relieve pressure. The theory behind spinal decompression is that applying gentle but firm traction to stretch the spine will lessen the pressure on the disc, which will allow the disc to return to its normal position while also encouraging blood flow. Not only is space created for the disc to move back towards its original position, circulation is also improved to encourage the body’s own healing processes.
To facilitate the stretching of the spine in a controlled manner, a device is used to give the doctor full control over the speed and range of the movement. The patient is attached to a table with computerized controls. Straps ensure that the patient is secure, while the doctor is able to adjust the stretching to ensure that the necessary space is created in the spine – while still keeping the patient safe and comfortable.
