Spinal decompression therapy in Dayton, TN is a type of motorized traction that helps relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine on a specialized treatment table. This elongation of the muscles takes pressure off the spinal discs, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated discs may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can heal.
Dr. Henry successfully uses gentle spinal decompression therapy in Dayton, TN to treat back or neck pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, compressed or pinched nerves, and compressed spinal joints. These motions are effective because they allow the discs a period of relief from constant pressure, which reduces inflammation and consequently restores optimal nerve function. Lumbar traction, a gentle and safe chiropractic technique, targets the lumbar muscles to reintroduce kinetic activity. The traction unit then comfortably applies traction to the spinal joint, decompressing the disc and reducing pain. Unlike conventional traction that stretches the back only, the traction procedure aids in reconstitution and disc healing, allowing increased circulation to the damaged area. There are numerous chiropractic techniques to relieve pain. Call for an appointment today to receive the treatment that is right for you.
