Spinal Decompression in New Buffalo
If you have experienced chronic back or neck pain in New Buffalo, you know how debilitating the pain can be, and how it can affect every part of your life. An injury to the neck or back can result in pain, weakness and impairment in mobility. Back pain is one of the most significant medical problems today, and back, neck, and disc issues lead many people to pursue back surgery. Back surgery is a serious, invasive procedure that involves risk, side effects, a long recovery time, and can limit range and mobility for a lifetime. If you are considering surgery, or have persistent back or neck problems, spinal decompression may be for you. Are you suffering from any of the following?
- Joint Pain
- Pinched Nerves
- Bulging Discs
- Herniated Discs
- Degenerative Discs
- Spinal Stenosis
- Limited Range of Motion
- Radiating Pain
- Numbness/Tingling of Extremities
Spinal decompression can be beneficial for all of these symptoms, and is a non-invasive, non surgical option to back and neck pain.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal Decompression works by alleviating the pressure on the spinal cord, nerves and discs. Gentle movement of the spine can improve blood flow to affected areas and restore nutrient exchange to areas that have been under pressure. Your spine is constantly under pressure from gravity, and this pressure compresses the spinal discs and can lead to back and neck problems. Spinal decompression uses traction to gently stretch and decompress the spine and alleviate the pressure.
Spinal decompression produces big results, but the procedure is non-invasive and gentle. The patient will lay on a spinal decompression table and gentle traction will be applied to the spine. This creates a vacuum-like pressure in the spinal area that can suck protruding disc matter back into alignment, and stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the damaged area, which promotes healing. Most sessions are only about 20 minutes long, and you can work with the chiropractor to determine the right number and frequency of sessions for you.
Patients are increasingly turning to spinal decompression as an alternative therapy that can ease symptoms and encourage healing. Some of the benefits that are seen with spinal decompression include:
- Reduction of Symptoms: Spinal decompression can relieve the pain, numbness, and weakness that are the symptoms of spinal pressure.
- Improved Lifestyle: If you have limited mobility that affects your ability to work or play, spinal decompression can increase your mobility and restore blood and oxygen flow to damaged areas.
- Improved Flexibility: The stretching of the spine during spinal decompression improves flexibility and movement.
- Improved Mobility: Spinal decompression can allow you to walk and exercise again without pain. There is a period of rest and recuperation, but many patients regain painless mobility.
- Avoid Surgery: Many patients who have considered an extensive back or neck surgery are able to forego this expensive and invasive process after being treated with spinal decompression.
