When the spinal cord is squeezed or compressed, it can lead to pain and other symptoms that may interfere with movement and everyday functions. Marron Wellness Center offers patients an opportunity to receive non-surgical spinal decompression in Shrewsbury. Our chiropractor, Dr. David Marron, specializes in this safe, painless technique designed to help correct problems with the spinal discs and musculoskeletal imbalances caused by injury to the spinal cord.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Non-surgical decompression therapy targets the spinal column to relieve acute or chronic pain caused by pressure on the spinal cord. It involves the use of motorized traction which stretches the spine and assists with healing of the affected discs, nerves, or connective tissue as well as prevents loss of mobility.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Compression?
Anything that puts pressure on the spinal cord can cause compression. A ruptured disc from an auto accident or sports injury, degenerative conditions such as arthritis, bone fragment, tumor, or swelling from spinal cord injury are common causes. The compression can occur in the neck, upper back, or lower back spine.
Who Can Benefit from Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression in Shrewsbury can be very beneficial to anyone who is experiencing a painful or debilitating spinal injury or a condition that is not improving with rest, medication, or even after surgery. They include the following common symptomatic conditions:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Leg pain due to sciatica
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Loss of sensation or coordination
- Injured or irritated spinal nerve roots
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness
Diagnosing Your Condition
Spinal decompression is not right for everyone. Therefore, Dr. Marron will perform an in-depth clinical evaluation and diagnostic image screenings to properly diagnose your condition. We will then decide if this treatment is suitable for you based on the findings.
How Our Chiropractor Performs Spinal Decompression in Shrewsbury
Spinal decompression is performed while the patient is lying on a special chiropractic table that delivers gentle traction motion to the spine. The chiropractor can monitor the amount of pressure being used to stretch and lengthen the spine at intervals. To achieve the best results, your treatment may include a series of 30-40 minute sessions over several weeks.
Decompressing the spine increases the space between the backbones thus allowing bulging or herniated discs to move back in position. Leg, neck, and back pain improves as a result. Releasing the affected nerves also alleviates sciatica symptoms, reduce inflammation, and restore nervous system functions. We may incorporate physical therapy, acupuncture, and K-Laser therapy into your treatment plan to optimize the results.
