Don’t Manage Spinal Pain, Cure It With Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
One of the greatest risks of having any type of back pain in Littleton, including disc degeneration, bulging discs and fused arthritic discs is the damage that is done by the drugs that are used to manage it. Many of these drugs are dangerous addictive opioids, that cause brain fog, liver toxicity, and other issues that only cure the pain for a while and then lose their effectiveness, as you grow tolerant to it. This has inspired many to search out alternative, non-invasive solutions such as chiropractic treatment.
The other class of drugs used to manage back pain is the non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, also known as NSAIDs. NSAIDs are also very toxic to the liver and the kidney and can cause intestinal bleeding. The risk of overdose, destroyed organs, and stroke has people with chronic back pain turning to chiropractors such as Brad Bourne who practices at the Littleton Chiropractic clinic.
NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION IN LITTLETON CAN HELP YOU AVOID SURGERY
That pain in the neck, upper back or lower back usually begins when an intervertebral disc, a spongy cushion that acts as a buffer between the bony components of the spine begins to degenerate and appear deflated. This compresses the nerves in the spinal column and also causes the posture to be misaligned. This can happen because of degenerating disks, disease or injury and chronic pain and nerve damage are often the results.
Very often, people opt for surgery to try and coerce the disks from rasping against each other and pinching nerves, but this is not always successful. Furthermore, recovery from painful back surgery can also mean needing a prescription for addictive opioid painkillers, which used over the long-term can provoke a whole new host of psychological and physical health issues.
HOW TECHNOLOGY AND TRACTION CAN HELP RELIEVE BACK PAIN
Spinal decompression in Littleton is a form of traction that uses technology and mechanical pulleys to pull the components of the spine apart gently. Sensitive gauges help adjust the tension pulling motion to help prevent your body from straining against the pull, so the treatment is quite comfortable for most people. The cure is achieved when the elements of the spine are pulled apart and expanded so that the crimping pain of compressed nerves is relieved. The treatment also allows blood to circulate into damaged areas between the spines and heal traumatized muscles and nerves.
CONDITIONS THAT BENEFIT FROM NON-SURGICAL SPINAL DECOMPRESSION
Most people see a complete resolution of their back pain if they follow Dr. Brad Bourne’s prescribed treatment of 20-25 30-minute appointments, starting with five appointments the first week and then distributed down to a couple times per week after that. The conditions that benefit from this non-surgical spine aligning treatment include degenerated discs, disc bulges, disc herniation, arthritis in the disc, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. The treatment at Littleton Chiropractic is not recommended for pregnant women, people with disk fractures or who have had metallic rods inserted in their spine. Individuals with severe peripheral neuropathy, meningitis, aortic aneurysm or spinal cancer should also avoid this chiropractic procedure.
