Non- Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression involves the use of a specialized table that gently decompresses the spine. This allows the chiropractor to isolate the affected area and treat disc issues with digital precision and proven protocols.
There is usually no pain associated with this treatment. Instead, the decompression technique's gentle pumping to the painful area allows the center of the intervertebral disc (called the nucleus pulposus) to assume its central position in the disc and can assist in healing from a bulging or herniated disc condition. Decompression may also improve disc height.
This technique can help move the disc away from the nerve, reducing inflammation of the nerve root, and eventually any associated pain and inflammation into the leg (if there is any related to your herniated disc).
