Amazing Benefits of Decompression Therapy that can Help Your Spine

So many patients gain amazing health benefits from this type of treatment. With decompression therapy as a preventative measure, you can also improve spinal alignment and reduce back pain. See what else spinal decompression therapy can do for your health and wellness at your local chiropractor in CA.

What is Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment that we provide for patients at Zaker Chiropractic. This is a modality of noninvasive therapy dedicated to reducing pain and conditions in the spine. Spinal nerve disorders can be quite painful if left untreated. In addition, you can develop more disabling issues like paralysis, incontinence, and bone spurs.

We offer spinal decompression therapy as a way to treat spinal nerve conditions so you can avoid chronic back pain and long-term issues. This also helps you to avoid spinal decompression surgery, which is invasive and involves removing tissue and bones through surgical methods.

Benefits of Decompression Therapy

When you opt for decompression therapy, the primary benefit is improved spinal nerve functioning. The nerves in the spine keep you active, mobile, and free of injury and pain. If you have pinched nerves in the spine, this can greatly reduce your ability to move your muscles and limbs. Therefore, decompression therapy helps you improve your well-being by ensuring the spine and spinal nerves are free of unintended pressure.

Plus, when you go to the chiropractor for decompression therapy, you can prevent back problems related to spinal health. This adds to your preventative healthcare and reduces the chance you will injure your spine or back in the future. You can complete decompression therapy without any anesthesia, but you may also opt for local anesthesia to help reduce pain when in treatment.

As a result, you can return to work or school without having any downtime after spinal decompression therapy. This is a great relief for patients who want a quick and effective solution for back pain.

Who Needs Decompression Treatments

If you suffer from numbness in the arms or legs or lower back pain, you may know the benefits of decompression therapy. Individuals diagnosed with chronic illnesses, including the following, can also use decompression:
