Have you been suffering with back pain or a bulging disc for longer than you can remember? Have you tried multiple different types of treatment without much success? Are you looking for an alternative to surgery that might help you finally find permanent relief? St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center has recently added a decompression table to our available safe and non-invasive treatment options for bulging discs and severe back pain. We recognize that traditional chiropractic adjustments, PT and massage therapy, while highly effective, cannot always alleviate more serious back issues, like a bulging disc. This new technology adds a significant new non-invasive therapeutic option.
Spinal Decompression Treatment For Bulging Discs
Bulging discs are very common, especially as we age. They can happen when one of the discs that sit between your vertebrae is compressed by the vertebrae and bulges out into your spinal column. This can happen after an acute injury such as a sports injury or car accident or from normal wear and tear of the spine over time. A bulging disc is extremely painful, and often compresses nerves that cause sciatic pain all the way down your leg. This can cause you to have trouble walking, exercising, and can lead to herniation of the disc and/or permanent nerve damage. If left untreated a bulging disc can eventually rupture.
Spinal Decompression Therapy In St Paul MN
The staff at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center have used chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and other non-invasive treatments to help clients find relief from bulging discs. Recently, however, we have added a new and innovative treatment option to our toolkit. Our decompression table allows us to carefully and gradually stretch your spinal column to lessen the pressure and relieve the pain. This table is computerized and can be adjusted to meet your exact needs. In addition to relieving the pressure on your discs, this treatment also improves the blood and oxygen flow throughout your spine, which promotes ongoing, long-term healing. For those who are candidates for our new decompression table, we recommend between 10-20 thirty-minute sessions with our chiropractor. While you may feel immediate relief, it will be important to continue therapy to prevent future problems.
