See Your Chiropractor in Fremont for Spinal Decompression
Nobody should have to live with lower back pain. One of the modalities of treatment for lower back pain your chiropractic doctor in Fremont, NE. Dr. Troy Brainard uses for lower back pain is spinal decompression. Here are a few things the doctor would like you to know about spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression is a form of traction for pain relief.
Traction is the separation of bones, joints, and discs in the back. We provide services that give the joints in your spine more room, resulting in spinal decompression. This can be just what is needed to take the pressure off a pinched nerve that causes chronic pain, or a subtle adjustment that reestablishes good alignment of your spine. Chiropractic offices use traction tables with computer controls for precise pressure at precise angles for precise amounts of time to yield the right amount of spinal decompression for recovery.
Spinal decompression can be especially helpful for sciatica.
Sciatica is a condition caused by compression on the sciatic nerve. This nerve exits the lower spine and travels over the hip and down the leg. This pinched nerve can cause constant pain night and day for months. When people are incapacitated for six months or more, there is only a 50-50 chance that they will ever go back to work again. When people get spinal decompression surgery for sciatica, there is only a 60-40 chance in favor of recovery. Chiropractic spinal decompression for relief of sciatica pain will never make the problem worse, doesn't require any drugs, and is more likely to work for you. A clinical trial in Europe found that spinal decompression was more likely to relieve pain than surgery, resulted in fewer painful days than surgery, less radiating pain, and less severe pain.
Along with spinal decompression, your chiropractor will show you exercises that strengthen your core in ways that keep the problem from ever happening again. It's not likely you will be rid of sciatica for good after just one visit to your chiropractor. But after a few weeks of treatment, sciatica pain and sciatica painkillers may be a thing of your past.
Chiropractic spinal decompression may be what you need after failed back surgery.
People who get back surgery usually have higher expectations than their doctors do. Even after back surgery, they still need pain medication and they still suffer from disability. Don't give up if back surgery hasn't worked for you. See your chiropractor.
Spinal decompression may be a key part of your recovery, along with help in making changes in the way you walk, sit, run, and lift that keep your spine in good alignment. Spinal decompression isn't an immediate cure for lower back problems, but it can be an enormous help.
