UNDERSTANDING SPINAL DECOMPRESSION IN NAPLES FL
To understand how spinal decompression therapy at Bergtold Chiropractic can provide relief for back pain, it is important to understand the basic function of intervertebral discs. Intervertebral discs act as shock absorbers throughout the spine, keeping separation between the neighboring vertebrae or back bones as we walk and move. As we age and with certain activities, these discs began to lose fluid, resulting in less space between the surrounding vertebrae. This loss in space often allows the vertebrae above and below to put increased pressure on local nerves, resulting in pain.
Spinal decompression tables are designed in a way that allows discs to return to their normal form. Typically, a person suffering from a disc pathology will lie on a specially designed decompression table that focuses on their area of pain. After a soft corset is applied carefully, a computer controlled program will determine the amount of traction or pull necessary to provide the intervertebral discs with the relief they need. As the unit tractions the spine to the appropriate level, fluids which supply nutrients to the discs are allowed to return. With increased fluid in the discs throughout the damaged area of the spine, the discs are allowed to return to their normal shape and form, providing relief to compressed nerves and other surrounding structures. This process is similar to what astronauts experience in space as gravity is reduced. While it has usually taken a significant amount of time to cause damage to the discs, the time required to return them to their normal form and function is quicker.
If you are suffering from back pain, we encourage you to explore the option of non-invasive treatment.
