Spinal decompression is considered one of the best treatment options for pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, back and neck pain, and many ailments. However, only a few people know it's a viable treatment option and might need to be made aware of the science behind it. We're here to help patients understand the power of spinal decompression and feel their best using this non-invasive technique! Visit The Spine Doc in Birmingham, AL, and read on to discover more about the science behind spinal decompression.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical chiropractic care technique that uses a traction table to stretch the spine. Decompression can help treat several ailments and conditions, including:
- Slipped disc
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Pinched nerves
Spinal decompression works by using a traction force to stretch the spine to reduce pressure on the discs, nerves, and vertebrae to reduce pain. It also encourages improved circulation of fluids and nutrient-rich blood throughout the spinal region, promoting natural healing processes.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
The process begins with your chiropractor positioning you on the traction table. The chiropractor then gently stretches your spine and holds it for a few minutes, creating space between vertebrae and allowing discs to rehydrate and nourish with oxygenated blood.
The patient typically undergoes between 10-20 spinal decompression sessions spread over several weeks. However, this depends on the severity of the condition and how well the patient responds to treatment.
At The Spine Doc, we understand there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to spinal decompression. Instead, our chiropractor tailors your sessions based on individual preferences and provides lifestyle advice to help you recover.
