Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a therapeutic technique that involves separating the vertebrae using mild pressure. This can be accomplished with an inversion table or with special equipment that can be used in Image1a chiropractor's office. During a spinal decompression session, the vertebrae are gently moved apart allowing the small disc in between them to gradually slide back into its original position. When used with chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy, this type of treatment can be extremely effective at relieving the pain and discomfort associated with pinched nerves, herniated discs, and other injuries associated with slip and falls or auto accidents. Spinal decompression treatment with Evergreen’s DRX9000 Spinal Decompression assists with relieving chronic back pain, neck pain, and leg pain. The DRX9000 stretches and re-positions your spine as an effective form of treatment.

When is Spinal Decompression Most Effective?

Spinal decompression is most effective when it can be used in conjunction with other treatment methods. It is effective when used on its own, but when used with chiropractic adjustments, the additional exercises can help to strengthen the affected tissues and help them to remain in their proper position. The use of spinal decompression is effective when it helps to relieve the pressure on the discs and intercostal muscles that help to support the vertebrae and spinal column. By relieving the pressure and allowing the bones and discs to return to their normal position, blood flow is re-established to the area, providing much-needed oxygen and nutrients the tissues need to heal. At Evergreen Wellness, Dr. Russell utilizes the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression table to gently stretch the spine and alleviate back pain, neck pain, and leg pain.

What are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression?

The benefits associated with spinal decompression involve restoring the proper position to the vertebrae and discs of the spine. Once the bones and disc are back to their proper place, any inflammation that was created is allowed to dissipate. When two vertebrae are pressed together, circulation to the area can be cut off causing damage to the tissues. Once the pressure is released, blood flow is re-established and the healing can begin. When the vertebrae are returned to their normal position, it can also allow for more mobility and greater flexibility. Another benefit of spinal decompression is that once the pressure is relieved, there is a greater possibility that the vertebrae will remain in their natural place and will heal correctly. With Dr. Russell’s use of the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression, there are no risks that would be associated with surgery, infection, injections, anesthesia, or other harmful medications and treatments.Image2
