Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Comfortable Spinal Treatment
Discs are strong ligaments that hold spinal vertebrae together. A spinal disc consists of an outer, multiple-ringed layer that encases an inner, jelly-like material called the nucleus pulposus. A herniated disc, or disc bulge occurs when the nucleus pulposus breaks through the outer layer and gravitates to the edge, which is embedded with tiny nerve endings. This is why herniated discs can be very painful, especially with certain movements like bending backwards or to one side. If the bulge presses against a spinal nerve root, it can also refer pain and/or numbness down the same side buttock and leg, a condition known as sciatica or lumbar disc radiculopathy.
Our Affordable Treatment is Covered by Many Insurance Plans
Spinal decompression is an easier and more convenient form of treatment for your spine. It can increase the height between your vertebrae to create suction within a disc, drawing the disc back. Our spinal decompression can also allow for increased blood flow to the disc allowing for the development of new cartilage fibers. Blood flow to the discs is an essential part of the healing process. This can allow for the disc to heal without the need for expensive and painful surgery.
Spinal decompression can be used as treatment for many issues, including:
- Lower back pain
- Leg pain
- Herniated discs
- Facet Syndrome
Trauma to your discs can be sustained a number of ways. It can be sudden, like lifting a heavy object, or it can be gradual without an apparent cause. The use of non-surgical spinal decompression virtually pumps nutrients and fluids into the weakened disc, which can allow for the healing process to begin. Our Catonsville chiropractic care office is very familiar with treating many issues with spinal decompression. Schedule an appointment today by calling us at (410) 744-1233!
