Spinal Decompression Therapy In Gresham OR
Decompression Therapy can help you.
The pain or numbness and tingling that you are experiencing in your legs and feet or arms and hands could be the result of pinched nerves in your lower back caused by arthritis and poor disc spacing.
You may have heard of the term osteoarthritis or degeneration and may have even been given this diagnosis by your doctor. The terms simply mean wear and tear or deterioration of a joint. One of those joints in the lower back consists of two vertebrae and a disc made of cartilage. The disc provides cushion and space between the vertebrae. Your spinal nerve’s exit on each side of these deteriorated discs, travel through your pelvis, down your legs, and end at your feet.
Spinal Decompression therapy is a gentle treatment that pulls the lumbar or cervical spine apart and back together over the period of a 15-20 minute treatment. During this progression the pulling and closing of the spine will cause a sponge like effect on the disc allowing water and nutrients to imbibe the cartilage. Over the course of a treatment plan recommended by the doctor this effect will allow for disc healing and increase the height of the disc, essentially reducing pressure off of the spinal nerves.
