CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR YOUR SPINE
At Advanced Pain Relief Clinic in Kitchener and Owen Sound, we offer spinal manipulation, which is the treatment most often associated with chiropractors. We also provide several other spinal treatments, most notably spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is a safe procedure that can be completed with minimal pain. This treatment method is effective for herniated and bulging discs, which are difficult for traditional doctors to treat. Read on to learn more about the spinal decompression that we offer at our Tacoma office.
Spinal Decompression Treatment
Our chiropractor performs spinal decompression treatment, which consists of the patient lying down on a specialized table. Once positioned, our chiropractor will connect you to a motorized device. The device will move one half of your body one way while the other side moves in the opposing direction. As a result, your spine gently stretches, improving hydration of the spinal discs. This improved hydration allows the spinal discs to heal properly from any injuries or conditions. Additionally, spinal decompression plays a role in optimizing circulation. Your blood then carries the nutrients necessary for healing to your back more efficiently.
Conditions Treated with Spinal Decompression
The primary condition treated with spinal decompression is herniated or bulging discs. Herniated discs occur when the disc bulges out of its space in the spinal column. This can occur due to an injury or misuse over time. The spinal decompression gives these herniated discs the space they need for their circulation, which ensures that this injury has the chance to heal. Traditional medicine generally involves pain killers and perhaps surgery if the condition is severe enough.
Some traditional doctors are starting to offer spinal decompression treatment, but chiropractors are experts in this area, as we have trained in spinal medicine. We also have years of experience in providing patients with this treatment. Different injuries require different treatments, and even if you are a good candidate for spinal decompression, you may need other therapies or follow-up sessions. That’s why our team is here to ensure you receive every aspect of health care that helps your body perform at its optimal level.
