Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression in Fairfax, VA
If you’re suffering from back pain, numbness and tingling, hip or leg pain, spinal decompression can help reduce — and even resolve — your pain without the need for drugs and surgery.
Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Therapy
Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective way to reduce back pain by stretching the spine using traction. It is noninvasive, performed in-office, and allows you to return to work or daily activities right after treatment.
How Spinal Decompression Helps Back Pain
The discs of your spine act as a cushion between the hard surfaces of your vertebrae. In many instances, back pain is caused by “slipped” or herniated spinal discs. When a disc is herniated or moved out of position, material can bulge outward, causing nerve interference and pain.
The gentle pull of traction in spinal decompression relieves the pressure on the discs of your spine. When the pressure is taken off the discs, bulging or out-of-place discs have space to return to a natural position and shape.
What Other Symptoms Can Be Helped by Spinal Decompression?
While spinal decompression therapy is an effective treatment option for back pain caused by disc abnormalities, it is also effective for neck pain and pinched nerves.
If you’re experiencing numbness and tingling in your arms, fingers, hands, or legs, this may be caused by spinal nerve compression. To correct this, it’s important to relieve pressure on the pinched nerves, which is easily managed with spinal decompression.
Other issues that can be managed with nonsurgical spinal decompression include, among others:
- Back, neck, and sciatica pain
- Degenerative disc disease and herniated discs
- Posterior facet syndrome (worn joints)
- Spinal nerve roots that are injured or damaged
Importantly, spinal decompression can successfully treat these symptoms without resorting to invasive techniques or dangerous medications.
