Herniated discs and spinal arthritis can be major sources of frustration. They not only cause pain, swelling, and discomfort, but can also decrease your overall mobility and functionality. Traditional fixes for these ailments often involve surgeries or laundry lists of prescription drugs. However, there is an all-natural alternative. At ChiroSports USA in Union City and Pleasanton, CA, our expert staff has been using spinal decompression to treat conditions like herniated discs for several years. 

Herniated Discs and Spinal Arthritis 

A herniated disc occurs when the gel-like center of a spinal vertebrae pushes through the outer layer through a tear or rupture. This bulging can press down on the nerves surrounding the spinal column, causing pain and inflammation. The discomfort associated with spinal arthritis is also caused by inflammation, which is why the two conditions can often be treated with similar programs like spinal decompression. 

How Spinal Decompression Works 

Spinal decompression is a completely non-invasive and drug-free process that is used to alleviate the symptoms of herniated discs and arthritis of the spine. Using traction, the affected discs or areas are gently pulled to create more space for the spine to breathe. Pressure is taken off your discs, allowing them to revert back to their proper shape. This procedure will allow your levels of inflammation to decrease, thereby reducing your pain. 

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Many traditional treatments for arthritis of the spine and herniated discs require patients to undergo risky surgeries that necessitate lengthy recovery periods. Spinal decompression is entirely safe and most patients can resume their normal activities right after their first session. In addition, many patients think they need to rely on prescription pain relievers to handle their pain. Spinal decompression treatments allow our patients to achieve pain-free results without resorting to excessive amounts of prescription drugs.
