The Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Many people are suffering from back pain. Whether it’s chronic, temporary or otherwise; back pain can stop you in your tracks with unbearable pain. But for most of us, back pain is something that builds up gradually. Perhaps it never becomes acute, but it always remains a factor in how we live and move. For many years now, spinal decompression has been a popular and accepted treatment for not only back pain but for many problems related to age and activity.
Over time, the pressure exerted by gravity on the disks of the spine compresses these disks so that blood cannot circulate through them properly. The compression can also put pressure on nerves in the spine causing loss of feeling, tingling, and pain. With spinal decompression, we allow that pressure to be alleviated, opening up compressed tissues so that nutrient-rich blood can enter these tissues and repair them.
Knowing this, we would like to present five powerful benefits of spinal decompression.
5 Key Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression has been an accepted chiropractic treatment for many years now. Here at Diamond State Chiropractic in Newark, DE, we have been using this practice to help our patients to improve their overall health and to recover from illness and injury more quickly. Here are five reasons we stand by this treatment.
1. It is Effective
The body’s ability to self-repair and self-restore is remarkable. More often than not, it is something we do wrong that gets in the way of the body’s healing function. With decompression, the chiropractor removes the blockage of proper blood flow in the affected area, allowing the body to do its healing work.
2. It is Safe
With no invasive procedure and no risky medications, spinal decompression is among the safest and most natural treatments available.
3. It is Painless
By temporarily reversing the normal effects of gravity on the spine, we use spinal decompression to let the body heal itself naturally. Only in cases where an injury is present would we refrain from using this treatment. Even in many cases where spinal injury is present, very gentle decompression, on a shallow incline for longer periods of time, can do wonders.
4. It is Inexpensive
This therapy is very inexpensive to perform. Only a few precautionary measures must be taken in cases where the patient may have a fracture. Otherwise, it’s almost as simple as lying down.
5. Few to No Side Effects
As mentioned, only very delicate or injured patients need to use this treatment with caution. Outside of those cases, anyone can easily and safely benefit from spinal decompression.
