Spinal decompression is pressure relief for your spine
Our spines are always under pressure- you simply can’t escape the downward force of gravity. But as we grow older, our spines become less resistant to the omnipresence of compression and we start to feel its effects more acutely- generalized back pain, sciatica, herniated discs and degnerative spinal conditions are all linked to the effects of spinal compression. One of the best responses we have for addressing spinal compression is providing your back with the opposite sensation: decompression. At Basco Chiropractic, we utilize the DRX9000 to provide effective, non-invasive relief of pressure to the anatomical structures of your spine.
How spinal decompression with the DRX9000 works
This instrument-assisted technique gently and methodically opens up space between the vertebrae, reducing pressure on the intravertebral discs. Reducing intradiscal pressure allows for retration of bulging disc material and therapeutic pain relief. Decompression also promotes circulation to an injurious region, allowing for healing oxygen and nutrients to reach a region that was previously at the mercy of pressure and pain.
What to expect during your decompression treatment with the DRX9000
The most common result is a therapuetic stretching of the region which is causing you pain. A typical session lasts between 20 and 45 minutes and side effects include a feeling of soreness akin to the undertaking of any new workout or stretching program. This feeling is allayed by applying ice to the region after the decompression session.
