Understanding Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a form of chiropractic care that is frequently misunderstood. While all types of people can benefit from various chiropractic practices, only those who have a pinched nerve or nerves need this procedure performed. Spinal decompression, when performed non-surgically is designed to relieve pressure on the affected nerves and, in some cases, may also treat a related condition in the sufferer. Before you can determine whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure, you have to make sure that what you are experiencing is actually a pinched nerve.

While only a health care professional can diagnose a pinched nerve, they generally do come with some tell-tale symptoms which can vary from person to person, often dependent upon the location of the pinched nerve. Some people simply experience spinal pain, while others may feel numbness or tingling of the spine. Muscle weakness, foot pain, and calf pain or numbness may also indicate a pinched nerve. While it might seem odd that the calf or foot could be affected, this is due to the fact that these areas of the body are connected to nerves in the spinal column.

Again, only a healthcare professional can diagnose your condition and determine whether or not this procedure is right for you. If it is, then the professional can also decide whether you will need a surgical or non-surgical procedure. In the end, all that matters is that you get the treatment and relief you deserve. It is impossible to fully enjoy your life while you’re in pain, and with a good Aspen chiropractor on your side, like those at WIN Health Institute, you can start living life to the fullest once again.
