Therefore, there are a few important points about spinal decompression that everyone should know.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a treatment option employed by many medical professionals to help those that are suffering from different types of back pain. In this treatment procedure, a small amount of traction is placed on the back at both the top and bottom of the spine. This traction is used to stretch the vertebrae of the back ever so slightly. The goal of this treatment is to alleviate nerves that might be compressed by the vertebrae as they leave the spine. This treatment is also used to make more room for vertebrae that might be pressing on each other. In some cases, more than one treatment session is required.
Why is it Important to be Treated Immediately?
When someone visits a chiropractor, he or she will often recommend that spinal decompression be performed immediately. The goal of this timing is to prevent this pain from getting any worse. Often, nerves are damaged by vertebral compression issues. The faster this compression can be removed, the quicker someone will recover. This can prevent nerves from sustaining any further damage.
Also, this treatment timing is important for stopping inflammation. Often, inflammation is present and it is damaging the surfaces of bones and joints. This inflammation needs to be alleviated before any further damage is done. Therefore, a trained chiropractor will recommend that this treatment take place as quickly as possible.
