Chiropractic adjustments are a common way chiropractors improve the alignment of your spine, but this is not the only form of treatment available when you see a chiropractor. At New Health Solutions in Zelienople, PA, Dr. Mark Fleming will assess the alignment of your spine, and identify ways to optimize your spinal alignment. Spinal decompression techniques are used when you have areas of compression that are causing pain or a disc herniation. If you have a bulging disc, decompression strategies help by opening up the space between vertebrae.

Understanding Spinal Decompression Techniques

You may have been told that you need to have surgery for a bulging or ruptured disc, but it is possible to try less invasive care with spinal decompression strategies used by a chiropractor. These techniques will help to stretch the area of your spine that is compressed, providing room for the disc to move back into its normal place. If the disc is no longer being compressed, it is possible that the herniation repairs itself. Supportive therapies, such as strengthening your muscles, are used to help your spine stay in position once you have had an adjustment. Spinal decompression techniques are part of an overall treatment plan to reduce pain, and improve spinal alignment.

What to Expect From Chiropractic Care

A chiropractor can find ways to optimize the health of your spine, improving your strength over time. You will see the chiropractor on a consistent basis when you are in treatment, as this is the best way for you to heal. Once you are taught exercises to do at home, understand that the exercises are designed for you to strengthen your body in between sessions. Your participation is important, and will make a difference in your ability to heal your body without surgical intervention. Spinal decompression can provide quick relief if you are in pain, but often requires repeat visits for the adjustment to stay in place.
