Spinal Decompression Therapy
Dr. Green has helped many, many patients in Bonita Springs, FL who are suffering from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or other musculoskeletal problems. One of the devices we use in our clinic to help our patients is spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression allows your back to recover by restoring the healthy function of the discs in your back, enabling them to return to their normal, healthy state.
How does spinal decompression help your spine recover?
Your spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae, and these are separated by sturdy, fibrous, flexible discs. The vertebral discs permit your spine to flex, bend, and twist and also work as shock absorbing between the spinal vertebrae.
If your lower back is damaged or if you have long-term pain, certain segments of your spine can become immobile, limited, and restricted. This stiffness of the spine results in tremendous pressure on the soft disks that cushion the spine.
This limitation and stress can result in pressure or inflammation of the vertebral nerves that pass 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 rebuild the normal function of your discs and increase flexibility and movement in your spine, and that's what spinal decompression therapy does. Spinal decompression works by stretching your spine and minimizing the pressure on your discs.
