Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression gentle passive motions travel up and down the spine to cause mild stretching, which in turn works to restore and/or promote the integrity of the spinal joints and their mobility. This therapy relaxes muscle and helps reduce muscle spasm and invoke an overall relaxation affect for the patient.

Spinal decompression is a therapeutic procedure that aims to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves and intervertebral discs. It is often used to treat conditions related to the spine, such as herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. The primary goal of spinal decompression is to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote the body’s natural healing processes.

The gradual and gentle stretching of the spine creates a negative pressure within the discs, which may help retract herniated or bulging disc material and promote nutrient and oxygen exchange within the discs.
This can reduce pain, improve disc health, and potentially alleviate pressure on spinal nerves.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is considered a low-risk treatment, and many patients find relief from chronic back or neck pain after a series of sessions. However, its effectiveness may vary depending on the specific condition and the individual’s response to the treatment. It is important to consult with a healthcare provider, such as a chiropractor or physical therapist, to determine if spinal decompression is a suitable treatment option for your specific spinal condition. Additionally, always consider other conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, and lifestyle modifications, before opting for surgical decompression.

Descompresión quirúrgica:

Se trata de procedimientos invasivos como laminectomía, discectomía o microdiscectomía.
Un cirujano extrae una porción del hueso vertebral o del material del disco que presiona los nervios espinales.
La descompresión quirúrgica generalmente se considera cuando los métodos no quirúrgicos no han brindado alivio o en casos de compresión grave de la médula espinal.
