Dr. Bogan has worked with many, many patients in Tulsa, OK who are struggling with back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or other musculoskeletal problems. One of the techniques we utilize in our office to help our patients is spinal decompression treatments.
Spinal decompression allows your back to improve by restoring the healthy functioning of the discs in your spine, allowing them to return to their normal, healthy condition.
How does spinal decompression help your spinal column recover?
Your spine is made up of bones called vertebrae, and these are separated by tough, fibrous, flexible discs. The discs enable your spine to flex, bend, and twist and also serve as shock absorbing between the vertebrae.
If your back is damaged or if you have chronic symptoms, the individual areas of your back can become immobile, tight, and restricted. This stiffness of the spine produces a lot of force on the soft disks that cushion the spine.
This restriction and pressure can result in pressure or inflammation of the spinal nerve fibers that travel from your spinal cord to the rest of your body. If these major nerves become inflamed or constricted, it can cause pain in the back, sciatica, or even numbness and prickling in your hip and leg.
The trick is to rebuild the normal function of your discs and restore overall flexibility and movement in your spine, and that's what spinal decompression therapy does. Spinal decompression works by stretching your spine and eliminating the stress on your discs.
