The spine is the superhighway of the nervous system, and the source in one way or another of almost all chronic pain. Every sensation we experience below the neck travels through the spine, but this string of soft tissue and vertebrae can also become its own source of considerable pain if the nerves are stressed in some way. Herniated or bulging disks, sciatica, joint pain and back pain are all associated with pinched nerves and misaligned vertebra. The best solution is known as spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression is a mainstay of modern chiropractic, administered by an experienced chiropractor and aided by cutting edge technology. In a typical treatment session, the patient lies flat and fully dressed on a mechanized table. Harnesses are attached, and a computerized algorithm determines and mediates the amount of negative pressure used to manipulate the spine via a process known as negative pressure. Gentle motorized traction stretches the spine and realigns the disks, relieving you of the agonizing soreness and structural restrictions associated with chronic pain.
Spinal decompression is highly recommended for patients who are seeking to relieve back pain without undergoing an expensive and invasive course of surgery. If you have suffered with chronic discomfort, tingling or other localized symptoms and want to try something far more gentle and effective than a scalpel, please contact our Albany spinal decompression offices today.
