Spinal Decompression for Herniated Discs
Herniated discs can cause a significant amount of pain and can interfere with your everyday activities. At Keller Family Chiropractic, we understand how disruptive and painful having a herniated disc can be. Dr. Faries performs spinal decompression with our 3D multi-axial system to help patients get nonsurgical and effective herniated disc treatment.
With more than 24 years of spinal decompression experience, Dr. Faries is adept at helping patients get relief from their herniated disc pain so you can go back to doing the things that you love. Here is what you need to know about treating herniated discs with spinal decompression.
What is a herniated disc?
Your spine is made up of a series of bones that are separated by rubbery discs that absorb pressure and help you move. When one of these discs slips out of position, called a herniated disc, it can press on the surrounding nerves, causing pain all over the body, but especially in the neck, back, and legs. Herniated discs can occur for a variety of reasons, from age-related wear and tear on the spine to injury.
How can spinal decompression help?
Spinal decompression is used for herniated disc treatment for two reasons. First, spinal decompression creates negative pressure in the spinal column, effectively creating space for the disc to move back into a healthy position. Second, the decompression allows healing nutrients to flow to the area of the herniated disc, which helps to reduce inflammation.
Together, these outcomes of spinal decompression ease pressure on the nerves in the spine and reduce associated pain.
What is 3D multi-axial spinal decompression?
Dr. Faries uses the Saunders 3D Activetrac system for spinal decompression. This FDA-approved traction table is the most advanced on the market and allows Dr. Faries to decompress the spine in three directions, for more precise targeting, without bulky cables. The table can also be raised and lowered to make it easy for patients to get off and on. This table allows for fast and effective herniated disc treatment, to get you back to feeling like yourself again.
