Dr. Keith has treated many, many patients in who are enduring back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or other musculoskeletal problems. One of the techniques we use in our office to help our patients is spinal decompression treatments.
Spinal decompression helps your back to improve by restoring the natural functioning of the discs in your back, helping them to get back to their normal, healthy condition.
How does non-surgical spinal decompression help your spinal column recover?
Your spine is made up of bones called vertebrae, and these are separated by resilient, fibrous, flexible discs. The vertebral discs allow your spine to flex, bend, and twist and also serve as shock absorbing between the spinal vertebrae.
If your lower back is injured or if you have persistent symptoms, the individual areas of your spine can become immobile, tight, and restricted. This stiffness of the spinal column creates a lot of stress on the padded disks that support the spine.
This limitation and tension can result in pressure or inflammation of the vertebral nerve fibers that travel from your spinal cord to the rest of your body. If these nerves become inflamed or pinched, it can cause pain in the back, sciatica, or even numbness and tingling in your hip and leg.
The answer is to restore the healthy function of your discs and restore flexibility and mobility in your spine, and that's what spinal decompression therapy does. Spinal decompression works by stretching your spine and reducing the pressure on your discs.
The treatment method is completely safe and Dr. Keith will make certain that you’re comfortable during the treatment.
