Shocking… electric… tingling… numbness… stabbing… weakness… burning. These are all words patients use to describe various kinds of nerve pain, including sciatica and peripheral neuropathy caused by pinched nerves in the spine. Fortunately, drug-free, non-surgical spinal decompression can help relieve pinched nerves that cause excruciating leg pain, arm pain, headaches, back pain, neck pain, and more. If you’ve been struggling with symptoms like these, you owe it to yourself to find out if spinal decompression is a good treatment option for you. Schedule an appointment with us at SoCal Spinal Decompression Center, Lee Chiropractic with your Los Angeles Chiropractor, Marvin C. Lee, D.C., J.D.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

To understand how spinal decompression works, it’s important to understand how spinal injuries can cause excruciating conditions like sciatica, headaches, leg pain, arm pain, peripheral neuropathy, etc. An injury, medical condition, or long-term poor posture can compress the cushioning discs between vertebrae in the spine, causing pressure on the nerves. In the case of sciatica, the sciatic nerve is pinched in the lower back, which causes burning and weakness down through the hip, buttocks, and legs. Headaches can be caused by nerves pinched in the neck, and so on. Spinal decompression alleviates these pinched nerves by stretching the spine and rehydrating damaged intervertebral discs.

How does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression involves securing the patient to a comfortable decompression table and then using a computerized system, loaded with the patient’s specific spinal injury points, to gently stretch parts of the spine. Under your Los Angeles chiropractor’s supervision, this targeted spine stretching lifts pressure from pinched nerves, often providing immediate pain relief. For many patients, a series of spinal decompression sessions is recommended for long-term healing and relief.

Spinal Decompression May Help Patients Avoid Surgery

Back surgery to alleviate pinched nerves from conditions like bulging and herniated discs can be problematic. Surgery can certainly help in extreme cases, but it can also be costly, painful, and invasive, requiring considerable recovery time. It’s important to explore your options to see if you can achieve lasting drug-free pain relief through non-surgical spinal decompression and other non-invasive therapies first. Many of our patients have found successful healing and long-term nerve pain relief by working with our Los Angeles chiropractor instead.
