Your Paris, IL Chiropractor Explains Spinal Decompression
If you suffer from back pain, with or without tingling and/or numbness in your hands, feet, arms, or legs, it can really negatively impact your quality of life. Sometimes, back pain can also cause your arms and/or legs to be muscularly weak. It makes it difficult to do anything and to enjoy yourself as you should and want to. If you are looking for relief, and are not ready to talk about the possibility of surgery yet, you might want to consider spinal decompression. It is a, non-invasive treatment that has helped many people become pain-free without surgery.
As with most things, the sooner you treat back pain and its cause, the easier it is to treat it, and even cure it completely. If you are looking for more natural ways to treat back pain, it is worth visiting a chiropractor and talking about your options. Most chiropractors offer a variety of healing therapies, and one of them may be right for you. Spinal decompression is one of these. At Hancock Chiropractic Center, we are pleased to offer the Terre Haute, IN and Paris, IL community with cutting edge non-surgical, non-invasive spinal decompression therapy that is designed to help you heal.
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Hancock Chiropractic Center is one of the few chiropractic offices in the Terre Haute, IN and Paris, IL area to offer high tech spinal decompression therapy administered by trained, experienced professionals. When the spine is misaligned, it can put pressure on nearby nerves, causing pain, tingling, numbness, and muscular weakness in the back and one or more of the extremities. Spinal decompression therapy takes care of this misalignment with gentle, non-invasive ease.
Common Conditions Treated by Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression uses a gentle form of traction, working on the principle of flexion/distraction. Using the traction device, a small amount of force is used to pull on the area with the misalignment. This opens up space between the vertebrae. If you have any herniated disks or ones that are bulging out of position, this pulling can open up enough space for the affected disk or disks to fall back into place, relieving any pressure on the nerves near them, relieving pain, and healing the other symptoms associated with misaligned vertebrae.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Once the affected vertebrae are back in their proper position, they will be infused with spinal fluid, which restores your correct height, and relieves stress on the other spinal joints. With regular treatments over a specified period of time, and complemented by exercises done at home, the spine can be realigned and strengthened so it does not go out of alignment again.
