If you’ve been diagnosed with spinal disorders such as bulging or herniated discs, you know that the symptoms include pain, weakness, numbness and tingling. Pain related to spinal decompression is caused by pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots along the spinal region. The spinal nerve openings can become narrowed as a result of a variety of factors including bulging disks, bone growths, and loose ligaments.
Chiropractic Care vs. Traditional Medicine for Treatment of Spinal Disorders
- Traditional Medicine: If you’ve consulted your primary care physician or an orthopedist about spinal decompression, you may have been urged to undergo surgical treatment. Some common surgeries for spinal decompression include discectomy, laminectomy, corpectomy and foraminotomy. Each of these procedures involves the surgical removal of sections of the bones in your spine. Surgical remedies can be invasive and dangerous.
- Chiropractic Treatment: Treatment for pain associated with spinal injuries or disorders doesn’t need to be invasive. Chiropractors are well-educated in the causation of back pain, as well as other joint pain and nerve pain. Dr. M. Scott White’s treatment is non-invasive and frequently painless. Chiropractors employ manual or mechanized manipulation of the body to release pressure that causes pain in certain areas. With the manipulation of the muscles and other soft tissue, the pressure is alleviated. Discs become repositioned, oxygen and other fluids flow freely. Gradually, discs are freed from nerve endings, alleviating nerve pain. Through consistent treatment and attention, mobility begins again and pain ceases.
Chiropractic Spinal Decompression
Chiropractic care using spinal decompression is often sought for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders such as bulging and herniated discs and other disc inflammation problems. It can also be used to treat pinched nerves, lower back pain, and migraines. Dr. White uses non-invasive laser therapies to treat damaged nerve cells. MLS laser therapy and deep tissue laser therapies are two treatments used at our center to provide permanent relief for nerve pain.
