Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive therapy treatment that treats chronic pain and acute pain resulting from a series of ailments such as back pain that’s caused by a pressure exerted by the expansion of spinal discs to the spinal nerves as well as a result of arthritic issues. There are various conditions that require this treatment.
For spinal decompression therapy treatments in Calgary, come to Northgate Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Centre.
The following is an examination of these conditions and implications for a successful decompression treatment:
Herniated disc is a type of condition that benefits from decompression therapy. This condition happens when the spinal disc is compressed thereby putting pressure on the spinal nerves causing pain and numbness/tingling. A decompression treatment relieves pressure from the damaged disc which alleviates irritation to the involved nerves.
A degenerative disc is another condition that benefits from treatment of spinal decompression. Decompression therapy can aid in the reduction of pressure on the degenerated disc which alleviates painful symptoms.
Spinal decompression therapy also aids in the facet joint syndrome. Facet syndrome may be a result of postural issues, activities that overload the joints or from degenerative/arthritic changes. Relieving pressure on the involved joints allows for decreased pain and improved mobility.
