Spinal Decompression Offered by Our Las Vegas Chiropractor
When you have pain in your back, it may raise concerns about the underlying cause of your discomfort. By addressing the pain with a holistic strategy, you reduce the risk of long-term complications with your back. Dr. Maria A. Giacalone, our Las Vegas chiropractor, offers non-surgical spinal decompression therapy that helps with your symptoms and encourages your back to heal.
What is Spinal Compression?
Compression on the spine impacts your nerves. It may stem from a variety of situations and factors. For example, a herniated or bulging disc may put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves in your spine. The pain you experience stems from the pressure on your nerves. You can get compression along anywhere in your spine. It can occur in your lower back, mid-back, neck or upper back.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a process of reducing the pressure on your spine without using surgical or invasive treatments. In our clinic, we use decompression therapy with chiropractic techniques that reduce the pressure on your spine and encourage your spine back into alignment.
Our treatments stretch and relax your spine to alleviate the pressure. We focus on addressing the cause of your pain without using harsh strategies or treatments.
How Our Chiropractor Performs Spinal Decompression
Dr. Giacalone performs spinal decompression therapy using a motorized table. The table allows our chiropractor to adjust and move your body by moving part of the table. We gently stretch your spine to reduce the pressure on the spine. We then help your back relax before we repeat the stretch.
Spinal decompression therapy is a gentle treatment. It uses a gentle stretch to alleviate the excess compression, or pressure, on your spine. That helps reduce your back pain and allows your body to heal.
Conditions Treated by Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression therapy treats a variety of conditions. It helps with osteoarthritis pain and herniated discs in your back. It also alleviates back pain from lifestyle factors, such as looking at a smartphone or tablet for an extended period. The pressure on your spine may also relate to aging, so the treatment helps alleviate the pressure from a lifetime of moving and working your back. We do not suggest the treatment for pregnant women or for individuals with injuries to the spine and bones in the back. You should discuss any physical health conditions with our chiropractor before we develop a treatment plan for your discomfort.
