How can spinal decompression help after an injury

Neck or back injuries are incredibly common after a car accident, fall or sports injury and non-invasive, chiropractic spinal decompression offers hope and healing. These injuries often result in a herniated (bulging) disc somewhere along the spine, from the neck to the low back, or sciatica (nerve) pain. Non-invasive spinal decompression from your West Valley City, UT, chiropractor provides a safe and effective solution for spinal injury pain, which often extends to the arms or legs.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Non-surgical spinal decompression can be part of a natural, drug-free injury treatment plan designed for you by Peterson Chiropractic. Invasive, surgical decompression (such as discectomy or laminectomy) is a drastic measure that can leave you with a lifetime need for pain medication. Spinal surgery and/or drug-based back pain solutions should be your very last resort. With proper chiropractic care, using modern methods including gentle, table-based traction, you can avoid enduring dangerous medication side effects. With non-invasive, chiropractic spinal decompression, performed by your expert chiropractor in West Valley City, you can receive long-term pain relief and enjoy greater freedom of movement.

Spinal decompression after an injury involves gentle and precise traction therapy to stretch the spine and relieve pressure from bulging or slipped discsand pinched nerves. This chiropractic treatment allows displaced vertebral discs to move back into proper position, restoring comfortable movement and relieving back, neck, arm or leg pain. Spinal decompression also gradually reestablishes sufficient blood flow, bringing healing oxygen and nutrients to the injured area.
