Chiropractic care is non-invasive, hands on treatment of the spine, joints, muscles, and nervous system. Chiropractors use their clinical expertise to diagnose and treat issues that affect your body’s pain and function. The types of treatments used by chiropractors vary, but all are used to promote health, improve your quality of life, and alleviate pain.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy that can help relieve back pain by gently stretching the spine. This stretching changes the position and force of the spine and takes pressure off the spinal discs. Bulging or herniated discs may go back into place taking pressure off spinal structures and nerves, which promotes movement of oxygen, water, and fluids to the discs so they can heal.
