Spinal Decompression

If you’re suffering from chronic pain, Dr. Chung Seo at Tri Health Clinic in Aurora, CO, offers spinal decompression and more to help you achieve optimal natural relief.

Spinal Decompression Therapy for Spinal Health and Pain Relief

Your spinal column plays a foundational role in your general health and well-being. It also plays various roles in supporting your movements, tasks, and even resting throughout your day. Unfortunately, this also makes it something that is easy to injure or damage. Everything from sitting to manual labor can impact your spinal column, so it’s critical that you take good care of it. In this guide, Dr. Seo and the team at Tri Health Clinic in Aurora, CO, share how spinal decompression plays a critical role in this care and the benefits it provides.

Effects of Spinal Compression

The spinal column consists of various parts, which include but aren’t limited to bones, muscles, discs, and nerves. Throughout the day, fatigue, stress, movement, sitting, accidents, and other issues and activities can cause the spine to compress. This puts unnecessary pressure on each of the elements of the spinal column, and can lead to:

  • Spinal misalignment
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Muscle tension and more

And such issues can cause everything from headaches to chronic back and neck pain.

Decompression Therapy

Decompression therapy is a highly effective method of undoing this damage. It involves the patient lying on a specialized table that has an upper and a lower section. A harness is fitted to the patient and the lower section.

A computer causes the lower section to slowly move, gently stretching the spine. As this process takes place, the following occurs:

  • Pressure is removed from the discs, nerves, and other components.
  • Discs and their filling are pulled back into place.
  • Tension is relieved.
  • Negative pressure is created that pulls blood and healing nutrients to the spine and discs, stimulating natural healing.

It’s a very gentle and relaxing procedure that is completely natural and provides lasting results. Typically, it’s combined with other methods such as adjustments, soft tissue techniques, and therapeutic exercise to ensure optimal healing and recovery. A personalized combination of techniques is created according to the individual patient’s needs.
