At Spine One Chiropractic in Cherry Hill, Egg Harbor, Northfield, and Atlantic City, you may receive spinal decompression therapy as part of your treatment for an area where you have a bulging or herniated disc. If you are told that you need surgery because of pain due to a disc problem, you may be able to reverse the problem through non-surgical decompression provided by our chiropractors. When the disc space is opened up through spinal decompression, the disc has the chance to heal itself.
What to Expect from Spinal Decompression
Areas of compression in your spine can be treated in several ways. Spinal decompression focuses on opening the area so that nutrient-dense blood can help your disc heal. Spinal decompression doesn't hurt and you may even find some relief after your first session. The treatment may include spinal adjustments to first get your spine into alignment. Once your spine is aligned, traction may be used to stretch out your spine. The chiropractor may use handheld devices to adjust your spine and help your spine stay in alignment.
Healing From a Spinal Compression
When there is an area of spinal compression, you might experience nerve pain or a tingling sensation down one of your arms or legs. This usually means that the compressed area is pressing on a nerve ending and causing inflammation. Once spinal decompression creates a space for your disc to heal, you can expect the symptoms to subside once the area is no longer inflamed. It may take a few weeks or more to see a significant improvement, but your body will start to heal if you receive consistent treatment.
