Have you been suffering from back pain, neck pain, or leg pain? Chances are your pain is the result of an injured disc or a pinched nerve in your spine. Dealing with this kind of pain is not easy and most often requires the attention of a medical professional.
If your quality of life has decreased because of chronic pain, contact Heal Physiotherapy & Chiropractic North York in Toronto today to learn more about our services, and how spinal decompression therapy may be able to benefit you.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive, effective treatment option for those suffering from neck, back, arm, leg pain due to injured discs and pinched spinal nerves. It is a therapy that works to “stretch” the spine to relieve pain by changing the force and position of it.
This change can relieve pressure from your spinal discs and in turn, promote movement of nutrient-rich fluids, water, and oxygen into those discs so they can properly heal.
Heal Physiotherapy & Chiropractic North York’s treatment approach with spinal decompression integrates manual “hands-on” techniques with gentle stretching and conditioning to ensure a full recovery and long-lasting results.
How Can Spinal Decompression Help Me?
Patients often experience immediate relief as the decompression process eases the pressure on the affected disc or spinal nerve. The separation that occurs within the spine also creates a vacuum effect, redirecting necessary nutrients, oxygen and fluids into the injured area to accelerate healing.
WebMD states that doctors have used nonsurgical spinal decompression in an attempt to treat:
- Back or neck pain or sciatica, which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
- Bulging or herniated disks or degenerative disk disease
- Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
It’s a good idea to talk to a doctor in Toronto first to see if you’re a candidate for this kind of therapy treatment at Heal Physiotherapy & Chiropractic North York.
