Spinal therapy is a non-surgical approach that treats low back, neck and radiating arm and leg pain. Patients seek spinal therapy for issues such as degenerative spinal discs, facet joint syndromes and spinal disc hernias.
Treatment of spinal disc problems and facet joints is aimed at taking pressure off of nerves and the overall structure of the spine which assists in the movement of oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids to promote healing. Daily activities can often create compression on facet joints and spinal discs, which could lead to herniation, spinal disc protrusion or bulging discs. Decompressing these areas, spinal therapy works by strengthening the supporting muscles, reducing muscle spasm, altering the patient’s body positioning, applying traction and distracting the areas to encourage recuperation.
