North Charleston Chiropractor – Spinal decompression has helped many area residents overcome debilitating back pain and other symptoms as an alternative to drugs or surgery. For many people, however, this cutting-edge technique remains something of a mystery. Here are some common questions and answers from our team at Health Edge Group.
What is spinal decompression?
We use spinal decompression in North Charleston as a non-surgical means of correcting spinal disc and joint problems. Disease, injury or even normal aging can cause the gelatinous discs between vertebrae to lose moisture and flatten out, causing spinal abnormalities and nerve root impingement. Decompressing the spine involves increasing the space between vertebrae through a gentle distraction force, which for many eliminates the need for major surgery.
