Help Eliminate Pain with Spinal Decompression
The majority of Americans experience back pain at some point in their lives -- many on a chronic basis. Though it may be caused by poor posture, pain is often the result of an injury to the spine. In fact, spinal injuries are often responsible not only for back pain, but for neck and extremity pain too. Fortunately, spinal decompression can solve complications of compressed vertebrae and restore normal space between the discs and vertebrae.
Disc and nerve compression is a common injury that can occur slowly over time due to chronically poor posture or suddenly due to an accident, such as a car collision. Poor alignment or the sudden impact of a collision can jar the spine out of place, reducing space between the vertebrae. Less space between the vertebrae can put pressure on the discs in the spine, bulging them out of place.
Spinal Decompression: Relief for Back Pain in Sugar Land, Texas
Here at Total Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Sugar Land, we regularly use spinal decompression to restore proper spacing and alignment to the spine. Treatment involves lying on a table that applies gently pulls vertebrae apart in the spine. The back is elongated and pressure alleviated from nerves and discs. Decompression treatment is non-surgical and may provide relief for one or more pinched nerves in just a few sessions.
If you suffer from musculoskeletal pain, we encourage you to schedule a chiropractic evaluation to find out if decompression could be right for you. Signs that you could be suffering from a compressed spine include upper or lower back pain or the symptoms or sciatica, which include pain, numbness or tingling sensations that radiate into the hips, buttocks, and thighs.
