Dr. Kauffman has worked with many patients in Loveland, OH who are struggling with back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or other musculoskeletal problems. One of the procedures we use in our office to help our patients is spinal decompression treatments.
Non-surgical spinal decompression helps your back to improve by restoring the healthy function of the discs in your spinal column, enabling them to return to their normal, healthy state.
How does non-surgical spinal decompression help your spinal column recover?
Your spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae, and these are separated by sturdy, fibrous, flexible discs. The vertebral discs enable your spine to flex, bend, and twist and also act as shock absorbing between the spinal vertebrae.
If your back is damaged or if you have persistent symptoms, the individual areas of your spine can become immobile, limited, and restricted. This rigidity of the spinal column results in a large amount of pressure on the padded disks that cushion the spine.
This restriction and tension can result in pressure or swelling of the vertebral nerve fibers that travel from your spinal cord to the rest of your body. If these nerves become irritated or constricted, it can cause pain in the back, sciatica, or even numbness and tingling in your hip and legs.
The trick is to restore the healthy function of your discs and restore overall flexibility and movement in your spine, and that's what spinal decompression therapy does. Spinal decompression works by stretching your spine and decreasing the pressure on your discs.
The therapy is extremely safe and Dr. Kauffman will make certain that you’re comfortable during the procedure.
