What is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression for Herniated Discs?
Pain from herniated discs doesn’t go away on its own. If you suffer from sciatica or chronic back pain, doctors may have told you that invasive spinal decompression surgery was your only option for achieving pain relief.
Before you go under the knife, consider trying non-surgical decompression from an experienced chiropractor in Leesburg.
Is Your Pain from Herniated Discs?
Herniations happen when the jelly-like substance that cushions your delicate spinal vertebrae slide out of place. Because your spinal column houses your central nervous system, herniated, slipped, or bulging disc can create localized or widespread pain across different parts of your back and body.
Common symptoms of a herniated disc may include:
- Sciatica: shooting electric-like pain that radiates from your hip down into your leg
- Tingling or numbness in the affected area
- Muscle spasms which may or may not be painful
- Muscle weakness
- Pain in your arms
Non-surgical decompression gently stretches your spine to relieve built up pressure which creates a healthy environment for nutrients and oxygen to flow so your vertebrae can heal.
