How Spinal Decompression Works to Relieve Pain
As your chiropractic clinic in Miami, 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, but 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.
