Here at Rush Chiropractic, one of the best services we provide is Spinal Decompression. But what is Spinal Decompression, you might ask? Well, Spinal Decompression Therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain.
The goal of decompression therapy is to apply steady, gentle distraction to the affected vertebrae, increasing the space between them. This produces several benefits:
- It takes the pressure off of the discs, bone structures, and nerves in the area. This increases the flow of blood and nutrients to the discs and promotes healing.
- With increased space, a bulging disc may flow back into the space between the vertebrae where it belongs.
- Misaligned joints may see an improvement in alignment, giving them greater mobility.
- There is now increased space for spinal nerves to flow from the spine to other parts of the body.
Spinal decompression devices use the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other appropriately trained health professionals for many years.
Both traction and decompression therapy are applied with the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.
We hope this has convinced you to al least try this invigorating treatment so that all the stress from work you’ve accumulated over the years can be lifted literally from your back!
