SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There are many patients who have suffered a herniated disc and experience significant discomfort and reduced range of movement as a result. Spinal decompression is a gentle therapy that can reduce pressure on herniated or fractured discs and exposed nerves and encourage healing of the area, reports Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness. Spinal decompression therapy can be effectively used in the treatment of bulging and herniated discs, as well as a number of the conditions affecting the health and stability of the spine. A San Antonio chiropractor can review all non-invasive treatment options for effective pain relief at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness.
A spinal disc is a gel-like cushion that absorbs force and provides flexibility in the spinal column. Spinal discs are found between the vertebrae and support proper function. A herniated disc is essentially a torn disc that can no longer perform its function as necessary and may cause discomfort for the patient. In a recent study it is used to describe displacement of disc material. Furthermore, in this study, 60 percent of surgical candidates who received chiropractic care reported positive outcomes.
Spinal decompression will slowly stretch the spinal column and take pressure off of an affected herniated disc. The injured disc has a chance to retract and necessary healing processes can occur at the site of the injury. A majority of surgical candidates can return to normal activities without the need for drugs or surgery.
“Individuals with failed surgeries and those using pain killers to manage a herniated disc can often find relief with non-invasive spinal decompression,” said Dr. Donald Phillips, DC. “As an experienced chiropractor and wellness provider, I have seen spinal decompression therapy provide effective pain relief and assist in the healing processes of those with herniated discs. Patients would do well to consider nonsurgical spinal decompression, a comfortable and gentle therapy with no down-time, before undergoing more invasive procedures or dangerous opiates for pain management. The use of other services, including massage therapy and physiotherapy may also be part of an individualized program to help patients with a disc herniation.”
