What Spinal Decompression is Used to
Areas of your spine can become compressed because of an injury to a disc, arthritis, or vertebrae out of alignment. If your spine is not in alignment or herniated disc material is leaking out, this can cause areas where nerve endings are getting pinched. This can result in pain, poor range of motion in your joints, and tingling sensations. Spinal decompression techniques can ease the strain on your body, and reduce the impact a bulging disc has on your health.
Spinal Decompression Techniques
Spinal decompression techniques used by a chiropractor in Voorhees, NJ, are designed to open up the space where you have a compression in order to reduce pressure. This can include spinal adjustments to get the spine in alignment, gentle stretching on a motorized table to open up the space, and strengthening exercises to help keep your spine aligned. You may learn exercises to do at home so that you strengthen your core muscles slowly. When your core muscles are strong, you will have an easier time keeping the components of your spine in place. Supportive therapies such as massage, ultrasound, hot or cold therapy and electrical muscle stimulation may also be used in the process.
