Discs are made of soft cartilage covered by a layer of tough cartilage. This acts as cushioning between your vertebrae. Age, genetics, injury, lifestyle choices, and posture issues can cause the inside part of a disc to protrude outward. When this happens, the body launches an autoimmune response, causing inflammation and pain. Duncan Chiropractic Group utilizes tried-and-tested spinal decompression techniques to relieve pain caused by slipped discs.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
- Pain Relief -spinal decompression reduces pressure on the affected disc, relieving pain and reducing pressure on nerves
- Restore Disc Positioning - the negative pressure caused by spinal decompression allows the leaking material of an affected disc to be suctioned back into the outer layer
- Non-Invasive - no incisions are made, so there is no chance of infection, blood clots, or other complications associated with surgical intervention
A slipped disc typically causes pain in the back, arm, foot, or leg areas. Furthermore, discs often limit motion and cause muscle weakness. In brief, living with an untreated slipped disc is quite difficult. Our chiropractors demonstrate proven success in treating slipped discs.
