Your spine is one of the most delicate and vital areas of the body. Over time, your spine might suffer from injuries, wear and tear, and much more. If you're experiencing back pain, you might benefit from spinal decompression. At Acosta Chiropractic Inc., our chiropractor in Riverside, CA, can help you find relief from back pain and muscle pain so you can continue with your daily routine free of pain!
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a type of non-surgical therapy that utilizes traction to stretch out the spine. This type of treatment can help relieve back pain, neck pain, and herniated or bulging discs. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine so that pressure on the nerves and discs is relieved. By doing so, the injured area can be given time to heal and the circulation of oxygen-rich blood can be increased. This helps reduce pain and inflammation in the affected area.
What Conditions are Treated With Spinal Decompression?
At Acosta Chiropractic Inc., our chiropractor can use spinal decompression to help treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Low back pain
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Sciatica and related neuralgia
- Discogenic pain
- Degenerative joint disease
- Spinal injuries or other trauma
If you're suffering from any of the conditions above, our team can help provide relief through spinal decompression.
How Does It Work?
Spinal decompression works by creating a negative pressure within an isolated section of the spine. This negative pressure creates a vacuum effect, which helps to reduce the pressure on the nerves and discs. In turn, this expands or opens up the spinal disc to create more space for the circulation of oxygen-rich blood and nutrients.
The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes and is usually done over a series of visits. During treatment, our chiropractor will adjust the tension so that it's just right for your situation. With each adjustment, you should experience increased relief from pain and inflammation.
In addition, we'll conduct a thorough evaluation to ensure that spinal decompression is the best treatment for you. We'll consider your medical history and any other factors before making a recommendation.
