Spinal Decompression & Chiropractic Helpful for Lessening Back Discomfort

Spinal Decompression & Chiropractic Therapy Helps Low Back Pain in Jenks

We work with many back pain patients in our Jenks chiropractic office, and Dr. Bogan and our staff uses an assortment of techniques to help get you out of pain and restore your spine's normal, healthy function. We find spinal decompression to be an effective approach.

Understanding Spinal Decompression Therapy

To help you better understand spinal decompression therapy, think of the discs in your spine like small balloons filled with jello. When you compress them (which occurs due to normal living, sustaining an injury, or other medical conditions), they can protrude, placing pressure on the nerves in your spine. This affects your brain's ability to communicate with tissues in the rest of your body.

If the pressure on the discs becomes too high, they can herniate or bulge. This reduces the padding between your vertebrae and can cause discomfort. The purpose of spinal decompression therapy is to alleviate this pressure to help increase your body's function and also reduce your level of pain.

Could Spinal Decompression Therapy Work for Me?

Spinal decompression therapy relieves disc pressure through the use of a specially designed table that carefully elongates your spinal column through slow and controlled movements. This decreases the pressure placed on your discs. Some studies show an increase in disc height by as much as 1.3 millimeters after just six weeks of spinal decompression therapy.

If you're wondering if spinal decompression therapy could help you feel and move better, simply call our Jenks office and schedule an appointment with Dr. Bogan today. Your optimal health is our number one goal!
