Spinal decompression refers to a type of non-surgical treatment that can be used to reduce/eliminate pain from a spinal issue or condition. If you live in the Omaha, NE, area and suffer from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or degenerative disc disease, spinal decompression therapy offers a non-invasive treatment option to reduce sciatica back or neck pain. Our chiropractors at Chiropractic Health Clinic can help reduce back and neck pain and sciatica discomfort with spinal decompression and other complementary chiropractic techniques.
How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?
Our Omaha chiropractors gently apply traction to the spine, which creates negative pressure along the spine's discs. The negative pressure allows problematic (bulging/herniated) discs to retract, which then promotes and encourages nutrient-rich fluids that bring healing nutrients like water and oxygen to the discs that have been damaged, potentially reducing pain and allowing the body’s natural healing process to take place. This entire process can be done without the need for surgery for pharmaceutical medication.
Spinal decompression therapy, as an alternative treatment, may be useful for many who suffer from neck and back pain caused by an inflamed or compressed sciatic nerve.
The Potential Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression can help to restore proper order to the spine and also potentially provide these benefits:
- Reduced Nerve Pressure: Misaligned discs tend to press on nerves and cause mild to severe pain.
- Promotion of the Flow of Nutrients: Nourishment is required to repair and strengthen damaged tissue, ultimately reducing related pain and inflammation.
- Stimulates the Healing Process: The healing process requires the flow blood and spina decompression might increase circulation the affected area, potentially allowing for increased mobility and pain relief.
Patients may choose to undergo chiropractic care in order to get natural and non-invasive care. Chiropractic care may help patients to avoid surgery because surgery may risky and come with long recovery times. Chiropractic treatment also does not involve the use of drugs to help provide pain relief. Lastly, treatment from a chiropractor is holistic. This means that a chiropractor will seek to treat the root cause of your problems instead of only treating the symptoms.
