Are you looking for spinal decompression in Huntington Beach (Orange County)? Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently by stretching the spine through the use of a mechanical traction device. This machine takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
Spinal decompression is used to treat:
- Back pain
- Sciatica (radiating nerve pain)
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Degenerative disk disease
- Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
The practice is promoted as safe and effective without the normal risks associated with invasive procedures such as injections, anesthesia or surgery. Spinal decompression sessions generally last 25 minutes. A complete program targeting the function of the stabilization ligaments, tendons and muscles is a vital part of Spinal Decompression. Exercise and adjunctive therapies such as heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, and cold therapy can assist in rehabilitation of these structures. Our goal is to not only help heal the disc, but to also enhance muscular control and support of the back and neck. Clinical results of this procedure have been effective in over 75% of the patients treated and most patients find long-term relief or effective management of their pain when they complete the entire program of treatments utilizing the Spinal Decompression.
