How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works spinal decompression therapy denver

Your spine is made up of multiple vertebrae cushioned by spongy discs. These discs contain a fluid, and when they become injured, this fluid can bulge outward or leak out, resulting in what is known as a bulging disc or a herniated disc. The bulging or leaking material puts pressure on the spinal nerves, resulting in pain, numbness, weakness, etc.

During spinal decompression therapy, the spine is gently stretched to create a vacuum that draws the material back inside the discs. When the material is drawn back into the disc, pressure on the nerves is relieved, resulting in significantly decreased symptoms. The decompression also causes negative pressure that encourages the flow of nutrients and oxygen back into the disc, creating an improved environment for healing.

Denver Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy is not painful. It’s completely natural, and it’s appropriate for many patients who suffer from bulging or herniated discs. Most patients only experience a pulling sensation during treatment, and many begin to experience relief after just a few sessions. If you think spinal decompression may be right for you, talk to your chiropractor.
