Spinal decompression therapy is an effective way to improve the function of your spine, and reduce pain caused by areas of compression. At Proficient Chiropractic we provide treatment for residents of St. Louis, MO, Overland, MO, and the surrounding areas. If you are struggling with pain, inflammation, or mobility, it's time to see how a chiropractor can help. When you are told that you are going to need a surgical intervention, chiropractic can offer you a less invasive approach to healing. If you are seeing other treatment providers for the same condition, chiropractic care can be an excellent complementary therapy for you to utilize. Treatment can ease pain, correct spinal misalignment, and help you move easier.
Understanding How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works
Your back may be in pain because you have a bulging or herniated disc, causing your nerves to become compressed. When this occurs, you can be dealing with a pinched nerve that might be difficult to treat with medication. Spinal decompression therapy addresses the function of your spine, opening the space between your compressed vertebrae. Once your disc has the space it requires, your disc has a better chance of healing from a bulge or herniation. You may be taught stretches that you can do at home to help keep the space between your vertebrae open. Decompression techniques are useful at managing the pain caused by compressed nerves and can be used regularly as a treatment option.
How Spinal Decompression Can Help
When you work with a chiropractor for pain relief, spinal decompression may only be part of the treatment you receive. If you are told that you need to have surgery, trying a chiropractor can help you avoid surgery in the first place. Chiropractic adjustments, corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, and stretching may all help ease the strain in a compressed area of your spine so that it is able to heal. Once the area is no longer compressed, pain can calm down. You can restore mobility without pain medication when you work with a chiropractor on our team to get your spine in alignment.
