If you’ve been told you have a herniated disc, you’re probably looking for answers. Can spinal decompression help? And what exactly is it? Keep reading to learn more about how this treatment could potentially help heal your herniated disc.
As a general rule, spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that involves stretching the spine to relieve pressure on the affected discs. It can help relieve symptoms of a herniated disc but may not fully heal it. It is often used in combination with other treatments like physical therapy and spinal manipulation.
I’ve been helping patients with herniated discs for years
For years I have been dedicated to helping individuals suffering from herniated discs. As a chiropractor, my passion has been aiding those in need of relief and managing the pain that comes with painful conditions such as herniated discs. One of the treatments I routinely use is spinal decompression and it can be effective in treating herniated discs. Through careful manipulation of the spine and vertebrae to encourage movement, this technique helps patients find relief without invasive operations or heavy medications. Patients with herniated discs should explore the treatment options available, especially spinal decompression!
Spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for herniated discs
In my experience as a chiropractor, I’ve seen many patients benefit from spinal decompression as a safe and effective treatment for herniated discs. This non-invasive option applies gentle stretching to the spine in order to bring needed relief and offers long-term healing results. It works by creating space between the vertebrae, taking pressure off of the discs which can move bulging or herniated disc material back into place. While it does not work for everyone, many people have reported good results with spinal decompression after traditional therapies were unsuccessful. If you’re dealing with a herniated disc, spinal decompression may be an appropriate treatment option that could give you much-needed relief. * 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
I’ve seen firsthand how spinal decompression can heal herniated discs
As a chiropractor, I’ve seen first-hand the healing effects of spinal decompression on herniated discs in patients. Not only can spinal decompression relieve someone’s back pain, but it can also be used to fully heal a herniated disc. Spinal decompression is non-surgical and can be done in a chiropractor’s office. At times, multiple treatments may be needed over a course of several weeks depending on the patient’s unique needs and circumstances. It’s been my experience that with proper care and adherence to an ongoing treatment plan, many people who utilize spinal decompression as an alternative form of therapy are able to find relief from their disc issues and return to living an active lifestyle.
If you’re considering treatment for your herniated disc, I highly recommend spinal decompression
If you’re experiencing lower back pain due to a herniated disc, you are probably looking for relief. Fortunately, spinal decompression can help. This non-invasive treatment uses gentle, controlled distraction, while also increasing the space between your vertebrae and decreasing the load on your spinal discs. It can offer relief from pinched nerves and other issues associated with herniation. Not only is spinal decompression safe and effective, but it can also provide long-term relief for those dealing with herniated discs who want an alternative to medication or surgery. I highly recommend attempting this form of treatment before resorting to more invasive procedures like surgery for your herniated disc.
