Spinal decompression is a non-surgical technique that can help relieve pressure on the spinal discs and surrounding nerves. Spinal compression can occur anywhere in the spine but commonly affects your neck (or cervical spine). Signs and symptoms often associated with cervical spinal compression are numbness, tingling, and weakness in your shoulders, arms, or hands. On top of that, pain and discomfort when performing daily tasks or exercising could also occur. Several things, such as spinal stenosis, cervical disc-related issues, or a traumatic spinal injury, can cause spinal compression. Spinal compression injuries can severely impact your quality of life. The good news is that non-invasive treatments can help decompress the spine without drugs or surgery. Non-invasive spinal decompression therapy can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and decrease other symptoms often associated with a spinal compression injury. Most people that suffer from mild to moderate forms of spinal stenosis, disc-related issues, or mild to moderate compression injuries are great candidates for spinal decompression.
Dealing with spinal compression injuries can be scary and debilitating to the person’s everyday life. Surgical intervention is often marketed as the only option for cervical compression injuries. But for most people, it’s not the only option available. Still, it is essential to know and understand that non-surgical treatments such as spinal decompression can help.
