Natural Healing and Relief With Spinal Decompression

If back or neck pain plays a role in your life, you might expect or have been told that surgery is the only way to get rid of it. That can be scary, as surgical procedures always come with risk – and there’s the recovery time to consider. Yet, pain has a way of making you desperate for relief – no matter what form it might come in.

Before resigning yourself to an invasive procedure, it’s important to know that there’s a much more natural way to send pain packing: spinal decompression therapy with Dr. Gengler at ChiroWorks in Colorado Springs, CO.

Spinal Decompression: What It Is and How It Works

It can be difficult to think about – or really care about – when you’re in pain, but back and neck pain typically stems from an issue in the musculoskeletal system. And that issue often comes from the spine being compressed.

Compressed simply means that pressure has squeezed or flattened something. In this case, we’re referring to the various spinal components being compressed.

When you first wake up, crawl out of bed, and stretch, you might notice that you feel a bit taller. As the day goes on, life, work, or stress weigh on you, and you might notice a physical difference in your height. That’s because the pressure of your day can actually compress your spine.

In some cases, regularly stretching and resting can relieve that pressure. However, in many cases, it requires more. For example, if you’ve been in an accident, the pressure of that accident can cause a spinal disc to tear and spill out on your nerves. Or constantly sitting at work with bad posture can pull the spine out of alignment, compressing nerves, muscles, and more. Situations like these can cause chronic neck and back pain and need more than daily stretches.

Spinal decompression is very effective as it literally releases spinal compression. You lie on a segmented table that gently moves and stretches the spine. This movement creates a type of vacuuming effect that pulls herniated or bulging discs back in, relieving pressure from nerves and muscles.
