decompression therapy

A herniated disc is likely to heal itself given the proper time and attention. At American Canyon Chiropractor, we want to offer you every tool in our power to treat your injury before surgery is considered. The DRX9000 provides spinal decompression therapy that actually works to reverse the bulging of a herniated disc. The basic idea of decompression therapy is to use a motorized device or traction table to gently stretch the spine, relieving pressure on the nerves, thereby relieving pain.

The goal here is to create an optimal healing environment for a herniated disc. As the bones of the spine are slowly separated, a negative-pressure vacuum is created between them, and fluid from the surrounding tissues is sucked into the disc, reconstituting its structure and establishing greater disc space between the bones. The herniated portion of the disc is sucked back inwards and the disc is remodeled.

Spinal decompression in and of itself is a beneficial treatment that can drastically improve your suffering from herniated disc. But its efficacy can only be increased by a holistic back care lifestyle. This includes a focus on correctly supported resting positions, exercise and attention to body mechanics. Give our office in American Canyon a call at (707) 864-2223 to schedule an appointment and start healing yourself today.
