Spinal Decompression Therapy
Dr. Bache has treated many, many patients in Reisterstown, MD who are suffering from back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or other musculoskeletal problems. One of the techniques we utilize in our clinic to help our patients is spinal decompression treatments.
Non-surgical spinal decompression allows your back to recover by restoring the healthy functioning of the discs in your back, helping them to return to their normal, healthy condition.
How does spinal decompression help your spinal column heal?
Your spine is made up of bones called vertebrae, and these are separated by sturdy, fibrous, flexible discs. The vertebral discs enable your spine to flex, bend, and twist and also act as shock absorbing between the spinal vertebrae.
If your lower back is damaged or if you have long-term pain, the individual areas of your spine can become immobile, tight, and restricted. This stiffness of the spine results in a lot of pressure on the squishy disks that support the spine.
This limitation and stress can result in pressure or swelling of the vertebral nerve fibers that pass from your spinal cord to the rest of your body. If these major nerves become irritated or pinched, it can cause pain in the back, sciatica, or even numbness and tingling in your hip and legs.
The key is to rebuild the healthy function of your discs and restore flexibility and movement in your spine, and that's what spinal decompression therapy does. It works by stretching your spinal column and minimizing the stress on your discs.
