Is Spinal Decompression good for bulging disc?
A bulging disc can cause great pain and discomfort if left untreated, and over time the pain can become worse. One option for treating the symptoms of a bulging disc is to use painkilling drugs to mask the pain, but this won’t solve the cause of the issue.
Chiropractic clinics provide many treatments for multiple conditions, and spinal decompression is a good choice for many issues you may face. But is spinal decompression good for a bulging disc?
Why Does a Bulging Disc Cause Pain?
Your spine is comprised of multiple bones that are separated by a form of cartilage known as a spinal disc. These discs facilitate the flexibility and motion available in your back. Over time, discs wear and degenerate, and may slide out of place.
When the disc is out of place, it is known as a bulging disc as it protrudes from the line of the spine. The largest issue this causes is to increase pressure on the nerves running up your spine.
Additionally, the discs provide a cushioning effect between the bones of your spine, and the reduction of this padding effect can add to the pain you feel.
What Does Spinal Decompression Do?
Spinal decompression is a simple stretching of the spine, reducing the pressure between the bones and cartilage. It is completely non-invasive and can be completed while the patient is fully clothed.
The reduction in pressure allows the back to relax, and the bulging disc can simply slide back into place. Under normal conditions, once the disc is out of place, the pressure present in the body (partially due to gravity) prevents the disc from moving back to its original location. Spinal decompression relieves the tension in your back and allows any bulging disc to return to its natural location, reducing pain, and restoring your back to the way it should be.
Once a disc has returned to its natural space, any damage that has been caused to it will heal more rapidly. Spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for bulging discs that can be used to reduce or remove the need for painkillers, and can also eliminate the need for surgery that may cause further complications or problems.
