Spinal Decompression

Have you ever stopped to consider how much your back and specifically your spine must deal with on a day-to-day basis? In many ways, the spine is the foundation for your entire body. Not only does it support the head, it provides support for your muscles and is the origin of all your nerves. It’s easy for the spine to incur overuse injuries or end up knocked out of correct alignment. Herniated discs and similar conditions are common. Fortunately, a chiropractor can use spinal decompression to treat your issues and provide relief. If you live in or near Mason, OH, and need spinal decompression, contact Dr. Matt Slater at the Mason Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Center.

How Spinal Decompression Works

Spinal decompression is an advanced treatment technique that uses specialized tools to slowly and gently stretch out the spine. You’ll be fastened to a decompression machine, which will then apply steady but gentle force in opposite directions to your back.

The staff at our Mason, OH, chiropractic center will use advanced computer systems to analyze your back and spine. From there, it’s possible to pin down the right level of force and the best way to apply it.

Then, under Dr. Slater’s supervision, the machine will gently and slowly stretch out the spine. You’ll be able to quickly communicate with the staff if you have any questions or experience any pain. While issues are exceedingly rare, it’s possible to adjust treatment to ensure maximum comfort while still achieving excellent results. 

Conditions Treated with Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression can help with many conditions and injuries. It’s a favored treatment method for dealing with herniated and bulging discs. If you’re suffering from a herniated or bulging disc, it means the soft gel-like interior of the disc has bulged outward and may be putting pressure on something else.

Spinal decompression is also effective for dealing with pressure on nerves. With sciatica, for example, your vertebrae or other spinal components may be putting pressure on the root of the sciatic nerve, producing numbness and/or shooting pain in the leg. Other nerves can come under pressure as well.

Spinal decompression relieves pressure. With herniated discs, this relief may encourage the bulging soft tissues to move pain into proper alignment, taking pressure off the nerve roots. If you’re suffering from sciatica or a herniated disc and live near Mason, OH, spinal decompression at the Mason Chiropractic and Rehabilitation Center could provide relief.
