Spinal Decompression Therapy
Tingling/Numbness or pain shooting down your arms or legs? You may be suffering from a herniated or bulging disc. Spinal decompression therapy is a revolutionary technique that our physicians utilize for a number of conditions. With spinal decompression, our clinic is able to treat herniated and bulging discs where other practitioners fall short by using only manual chiropractic adjusting. Spinal Decompression is a cutting edge technology and puts Functional Health Center of the Carolinas at the forefront of neck and back disc treatment as well as nerve radiculopathy.
Although this treatment is often used to treat back and neck pain caused by conditions such as herniated or bulging discs, it can also be used to treat a wide range of back, neck and even body pain. For example, it can be used to treat conditions such as spinal arthritis and stenosis, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and leg pain amongst many others.
Spinal decompression therapy relaxes the spine through specific positions. The spinal disc is put under “negative pressure,” to pull the herniated disc material back inside through a vacuum effect. Because of the decrease in pressure in the discs, spinal decompression stimulates the blood supply and promotes healing.
