Our Redwood City Chiropractor Explains How Spinal Complications Develop

The spine plays a central role in your physical and emotional wellbeing. Every vertebra in the spinal column is separated by a thin, soft gel, which is called an intervertebral disc. These intervertebral discs absorb pressure in the body to keep you healthy and prevent pain during activities of daily life. Without these, your bones would rub together creating an incredible amount of pain.

Age, injury, or accident can damage or degrade the intervertebral discs, reducing the protective barrier between discs and placing discs under compression. When the discs are bunched up, they will rub together.

Since we use natural methods to create space, stretching and realigning the spine, we can reduce the pressure and pain you feel, create more space, and keep back problems at bay for good.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

A new treatment for back pain, spinal decompression therapy offer gentle yet effective treatment for many types of back pain. If you suffer from one of the following conditions, spinal decompression may be a good choice for you:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Compressed Disc/Spine
  • Sciatica
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Extremity pain (upper and lower)

In this treatment method, we use a computer-aided traction system and a special table. We place you on the table, then adjust the computer to deliver gentle, precise, and exact hydraulic stretching. These adjustments slowly stretch the ligaments and the spine, creating more space in your back, neck, or other areas.

As we do this, herniated discs will be able to slide back into place and you will feel relief from your pain. During treatment, healing fluids, oxygen, and nutrients flow also into the spinal tissue, bringing relief from pain and inflammation.

Many individuals who have tried injections, medication, and even surgery to find short term relief have come away from these conventional treatment methods still suffering. We have been able to help people who have not found relief in other ways with spinal decompression therapy. If you are ready to enjoy a healthy spine and end back pain, call us. We would be happy to evaluate whether you are a good fit for this treatment method and answer any questions you have during a new patient consultation.
