Top 5 Questions We Get On Spinal Decompression in Southlake
Spinal decompression is a manual chiropractic technique that Meyer Chiropractic uses to relieve pressure from intervertebral discs within your spine. This holistic treatment creates vacuum-like pressure that improves circulation and restores disc hydration.
Spinal decompression for pain relief involves:
- Manual stretch-and-release techniques
- Reshaping bulging discs
- Relieving pressure near pinched nerves
Your provider aligns your spine to reduce pain and other unpleasant symptoms related to damaged spinal discs.
Manual spinal decompression relieves the following symptoms related to damaged intervertebral discs, which are the soft shock-absorbing discs between vertebrae in your spine:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Other chronic aches and pains
- Pain from degenerative disc disease
- Radiating pain in the legs
Spinal decompression releases pressure near pinched nerves and eases pain caused by bulging, herniated, or degenerative spinal discs.
When you arrive at a spinal decompression appointment, Dr. Meyer goes over your medical history and talks about symptoms you’re having. Your provider places you on a special table, and stabilizes your hips to lock you into position.
He then performs a series of chiropractic adjustments, and stretches and releases each vertebra to ease tension and pain. You’ll leave your appointment feeling refreshed and energized.
A digital X-ray helps determine the extent of your injury. Your provider lets you know if you’re a good candidate for spinal decompression. If you experience back pain due to damaged discs, spinal decompression is likely a good match for you.
You can take several precautions to prevent future disc damage and pain associated with it. For example:
- Get regular chiropractic adjustments
- Avoid improper lifting techniques
- Practice good posture
- Exercise and stretch regularly
- Maintain a healthy body weight
Avoid lifting heavy objects with improper form to prevent unnecessary stress and strain on your back. Regular strengthening exercises help improve posture, and keep your weight within a healthy range to reduce your risk of disc damage.
