Whether you have an occasional backache or wake up a majority of days with back pain, a chiropractor can help. Most often, your back pain stems from an injury or condition dealing with your musculoskeletal system. At Centennial Wellness Center in Las Vegas, NV, we can help using a technique known as spinal decompression.
About Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression is a chiropractic treatment that gently stretches your spine using a machine. Our chiropractor situates you on a table. Then, you're connected to rigging that connects to a mechanism that gently separates your discs and vertebrae.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
When your vertebrae and discs are pulled away from one another, it relieves pressure on the sensitive discs in between the bones. Additionally, spinal decompression allows blood to flow better throughout your back. Your blood consists of nutrients that promote healing. Therefore, we often use spinal decompression to help with back injuries like a herniated disc.
Our chiropractor uses spinal decompression for a variety of conditions, including sciatica. It takes the pressure off the sciatic nerve to reduce your pain. Moreover, it helps alleviate nerve-related symptoms like tingling, numbness, weakness, and burning.
Other possible reasons why we may use spinal decompression include the following:
- Bulging disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
Safety of Spinal Decompression and Other Chiropractic Care
Generally, spinal decompression is safe for most patients. A majority of people don't experience any negative effects after undergoing the procedure. We perform an analysis of your current medical conditions and medical history to assure the procedure is safe for you.
Since it's a natural treatment, it works with your body to promote healing and pain relief. It doesn't put any chemicals into your system that could cause side effects. Unlike narcotic analgesics, the treatment isn't addictive. Therefore, you can stop it anytime you like.
You can go back to work immediately following your procedure. You're not limited to the activities you can perform, either. We just recommend you taking the necessary precautions to refrain from activities that could lead to back injuries. Additionally, you won't have to put yourself at risk of infection and other complications that could arise from a surgical procedure on your back. Finally, we custom tailor a plan to address your back pain and other symptoms, which may be treatments to complement spinal decompression.
