Spinal Decompression in Park City, UT
No matter what you find yourself doing all day, daily activities can easily lead to back pain in one way or another, especially if you already have back problems. Certain events and jobs put you more at risk for a back injury, such as heavy lifting or strenuous activities. Fortunately, our chiropractor at Green Apple Wellness Center, serving Park City and the nearby regions, offers spinal decompression therapy to help. Our spinal decompression therapy can ensure natural relief from your pain or discomfort.
Spinal decompression is a chiropractic treatment that consists of our practitioner asking you to lie on a table. Our chiropractor then connects you to a rigging system, which then attaches to a machine. Once on, this machine will pull the rigging. As a result, half of your body will gently move upward while the other half moves downward. This motion will move the vertebrae for proper realignment of discs and the musculoskeletal system.
This particular treatment may be used by itself or along with other chiropractic treatments, such as spinal manipulation paired with the activator technique to enhance it.
Our chiropractor may recommend you receive this treatment for pain relief if you have general back pain. We may recommend this treatment if you have fibromyalgia and back pain, since it's associated with helping patients with cervical spinal stenosis, an issue that's common with patients who have fibromyalgia.
Additionally, our chiropractor may recommend you undergo spinal decompression therapy if you have sciatica. This is a condition caused by damage or pressure on your sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in your body that extends from your lower back, through your buttocks, and down each leg. With this condition, you may feel pain, burning, numbness, or tingling anywhere along the path of your sciatic nerve.
Our chiropractor also uses spinal decompression to help treat herniated discs. This particular issue happens when you have a tear in a disc, and the contents may start to seep from the disc and irritate the surrounding nerves and soft tissue. Our practitioner might recommend spinal decompression if you have a bulging disc. This condition occurs when the contents of your disc push on the shell of your disc and cause it to bulge. It's less likely to cause pain and other symptoms than a herniated disc.
