Spinal Decompression Therapy at Weiss Chiropractic

Spinal Decompression Therapy

If you're suffering from neck/back pain, weakness in your limbs, or odd neurological misfires in your hands or feet, you may be dealing with compression of the nerve tissue in and around the spinal column. Impinged nerves cannot send signals properly, and a variety of conditions can put the pinch of these sensitive tissues, including herniated or bulging discs. But these days you don't have to face the risks and recuperation times of major surgery to combat this problem -- because here at Weiss Chiropractic, we can restore normal nerve function through non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal Issues That Pinch Nerve Tissue

Every sensation and motor command that passes through your body is relayed between the brain and the spinal cord. The spinal cord branches out in all the many serves that serve your physical functions via a series of major nerve roots. these nerve roots extend through narrow spaces between the vertebrae, while the spinal cord itself is contained with a relatively narrow canal in the spinal column. With nerves, vertebrae, and discs coexisting in such close proximity, it's little wonder that even small alignment problems can mean big trouble for your nervous system. When the spinal cord or its nerve roots become pinched, you may experience pain in your neck or back, tingling or numbness in the extremities, and loss of motor control. Common causes of such nerve impingement include:

  • Bulging discs which have flattened out due to loss of internal hydration (a problem which can also put painful stress on the vertebral joints)
  • A herniated disc whose outer casing has ruptured, allowing inflammatory material to spill out onto nearby nerve tissue
  • Narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis) due to age-related degenerative conditions
  • A form of vertebral displacement called spondylolisthesis
  • An acute injury that shifts spinal components out of place
  • Longtime postural and alignment issues which push vertebral components into nerve roots

You may experience pain and neurological symptoms in your upper extremities due to cervical nerve impingement (a situation known as cervical radiculopathy), or you may experience them in your legs, feet, and lower back if the impingement affects your sciatic nerve roots (the familiar complaint called sciatica).

Our Non-Surgical Approach to Spinal Decompression

Surgical spinal decompression typically involves removing spinal materials or fusing vertebral structures together. If that sounds too extreme for you, visit Weiss Chiropractic for non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. Our chiropractor in Golden, Dr. Weiss, can determine why and where your nerve impingement is occurring. A mechanized treatment table then applies small, precise degree of flexion-distraction force to that region. The pulling-apart force creates enough negative pressure between vertebrae to pull bulging or herniated discs away from nerve tissue.
