Advanced Spinal Decompression Chiropractor

Many individuals struggle with chronic back and neck pain. If you’re one of those people, chances are you’ve tried many solutions only to have symptoms return. One method many turn to for relief from symptoms is spinal decompression. 

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment used by some chiropractors to reduce pressure on the discs in the spine to promote healing and alleviate the pain from many conditions, such as:

This is done by using a table or machine to apply controlled stretching to the spine, creating negative pressure within the discs. This process can:

  • Help herniated or bulging discs retract
  • Reduce stress on spinal nerves
  • Enhance the circulation of nutrients and fluids to the spine

All of the above can result in immediate pain relief and improved spinal function. However, a concern with spinal decompression is that it alone cannot address structural problems, such as spinal misalignment or poor posture, that may be causing the spinal compression in the first place. 

A Brief Overview of Spinal Compression

The vertebrae in the spine are separated and cushioned by soft, fluid-filled discs. When these discs experience excessive stress, spinal compression causes pain and discomfort. This pressure is often caused by underlying issues such as spinal misalignment or postural abnormalities that negatively affect the spine’s ability to carry and distribute weight.

Chiropractors use non-invasive methods, like spinal decompression, to alleviate this pressure. Chronic pain recurrence is often linked to underlying issues, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive approach with spinal decompression as a critical component of treatment.

How Can a Spinal Decompression Chiropractor Help?

The best spinal decompression chiropractors can treat underlying causes at the root, typically through treatments designed to restore the spine’s natural curvature, which prevents further spinal compression. 

The PostureWorks Difference
PostureWorks sets itself apart by alleviating immediate pain resulting from spinal compression and identifying and correcting the misalignments and postural issues that give rise to spinal compression in the first place. Our methodology is rooted in a multimodal approach to chiropractic care, with cutting-edge techniques such as Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) as the foundation of our treatment protocols.Our unwavering dedication to this evidence-based approach enables us to target the underlying origins of our patient’s concerns, delivering lasting results even for those grappling with recurrent chronic conditions.

A Proactive Approach to Chiropractic Care

While spinal decompression can yield immediate results, they tend to be short-lived when this technique is used in isolation. The most effective spinal decompression chiropractors incorporate spinal decompression into a comprehensive treatment plan that targets spinal misalignments and postural issues. Doing so enhances the spine’s natural resilience against everyday wear and tear, ensuring longer-lasting relief.

This is done by combining spinal decompression with other treatments as part of a regimen designed to address the individual’s unique needs and restore their natural spinal curvature.
