The doctors and staff of Got Your Back Total Health specialize in the use of several different back procedures including spinal decompression. The facility serves the residents of Washington, D.C. and Spring Valley, Maryland.
Spinal decompression works by reducing pressure within the disc. It allows nutrients to flood the area in an attempt to provide what is needed for healing. Spinal decompression uses traction to create negative pressure inside the disc. The reduction of pressure allows the herniated portion of the disc to retract or be drawn back into its normal boundaries. The patient lays on a traction table and the body is allowed to stretch as the table is inverted.This type of nonsurgical decompression is used to reduce pressure on various parts of the spine in the hopes to relieve pain in the lower extremities.
Spinal decompression is used when pressure is placed on one or more vertebrae. The pain and discomfort associated with herniated discs and pinched nerves can sometimes be alleviated with the use of spinal decompression therapy. Taking the pressure off of the vertebrae allows them to stretch apart. This gives the disc an opportunity to return to its normal position. The same is true when dealing with a pinched nerve. Stretching the vertebrae will allow the muscles that support the spinal column to relax, relieving pressure on nerves that may be pinned between the muscle and a bone or other connective tissue.
Spinal decompression can be used with many other treatment options, including chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitation programs, deep tissue massage, and physical therapy treatment plans. Once the spinal column has been relaxed through the use of traction, other treatment methods can be employed to help maintain and strengthen the musculoskeletal system. When herniated discs are present, relaxing the spine allows the discs to receive the nutrients they need once the pressure has been relieved. While this may not completely fix the problem, it can dramatically reduce the discomfort that is associated with the condition.
