Most humans spend a lot of time sitting while at their computers and watching TV.
Sitting creates more pounds per square inch on the lumbar spine and its discs than any other activity. This can lead to the spine compressing, wearing down the spinal discs, and degeneration over time. Decompressing the spine makes the spine less susceptible to this degeneration and breakdown which can result in radiating leg pain, numbness, and tingling.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require any medication and is not very time-consuming. Depending on the patient’s condition, it can provide relief after only a couple of sessions. This treatment addresses pain in the spine when it is compressed, which stops blood flow to the affected area, which in turn slows the oxygen to the area and limits the nutrients. Spinal decompression involves making space between the vertebrae, letting the oxygen and nutrients flow unobstructed to the spine and easing general pain, specific pain, and even migraines.
Spinal decompression coupled with chiropractic adjustments benefits patients with common issues like sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome.
