Spinal DecompressionWhen your spine is compressed, symptoms can affect the whole body.
Spinal Decompression Specialists
Back pain and neck pain occur when tension builds up in the affected parts of the spine. Pressure on spinal discs can cause inflammation that makes moving around painful. Better Health by Design offers spinal decompression, which helps relieve tension on the spine. Patients in Cumming, Georgia, with back or neck pain can benefit from this type of noninvasive treatment.
Spinal Compression Q & A
Spinal decompression is a manual treatment that eases pressure on spinal discs, which relieves pain and other symptoms. This type of treatment uses stretching techniques to create negative pressure between discs to help restore them to the right position. Spinal decompression doesn’t involve making any incisions or using medications, which makes it less risky than these other forms of treatment.
Which patients can have spinal decompression?
Spinal decompression can help relieve pain from:
- Spinal injuries
- Bulging discs
Herniated discs and other spinal conditions If you have neck or back pain associated with spinal problems, you can have spinal decompression done as long as you’re a suitable candidate. In fact, this form of treatment is generally safe for many patients. However, if you have concerns or underlying health conditions, such as osteoporosis, you should discuss this with the team at Better Health by Design to make sure you can still have spinal decompression done.
How does spinal decompression work?
When damaged discs or other spinal problems lead to a buildup of tension on nerves in the affected area, this can cause considerable pain and other symptoms to occur. Spinal decompression relieves symptoms by easing tension on these nerves. Stretching the spine during this type of treatment creates negative pressure to develop, which helps reposition the affected discs and promotes the healing process.
How many spinal decompression sessions do patients need?
The number of sessions you need depends on your condition, such as how severe it is and what part of your body it affects. Patients usually notice improvement after undergoing at least a few sessions, although results vary for each patient. You might require more treatment sessions than other patients if you have a more severe injury or an underlying condition that can affect the healing process. Your Better Health by Design provider will let you know roughly how many sessions you might need for optimal improvement.
Why do some chiropractic patients need spinal decompression and adjustments?
If you continue to have chronic pain and disc problems even after having spinal adjustments, you might need spinal decompression. This type of treatment helps correct disc problems for more effective pain relief. For more information on spinal decompression, please contact Better Health by Design to make an appointment.
