Herniated discs can cause severe back pain, as well as leg pain, tingling and numbness. So what is a non-invasive painless way to treat the patient with a disc problem? Enter decompression therapy. This is a technique that we utilize at Kauffman Chiropractic that helps open the disc space and allows the disc to heal.
How does a disc heal? By imbibition. Imbibition is the process in which fluid enters the disc and allows healing to occur. However, this process only occurs with motion and pumping of the fluid in and out of the disc, which is where decompression therapy excels. The pressure inside the disc changes with the action of the decompression unit, allowing fluid flow and healing to occur.
If you are interested in decompression therapy, please come in for a free consultation. Cincinnati chiropractor Dr. Kauffman will speak with you and determine if decompression might be the right treatment to help heal your disc problem.
