Spinal Decompression 

Spinal Decompression Pickering is now available at Hardwood Chiropractic for the treatment of disc injuries. Disc injuries are now one of the most widespread causes of daily neck and lower back pain. Even with daily chores the discs in your spine are under pressure being twisted with every movement. These factors can result in an injury.As your discs degenerate, they lose hydration which reduces disc height and creates the opportunity for facet syndrome and lateral foraminal stenosis. 

Degeneration causes the pliable outer coating of the disc to become brittle and vulnerable to cracking or tears. This injury can lead to disc bulging, protrusion or herniated discs that can put press on spinal nerves, causing severe pain and irritation of the nerve root.

Damaged discs rarely heal on their own because they are constantly under pressure, even when a person is at rest. It has become widely accepted that the best way to improve disc injury is to decompress, or reduce the pressure on the damaged disc.

When you reduce the pressure on a disc or decompress it, it is better able to absorb fluids and nutrients enabling the body's natural healing processes. Also, reducing intra-discal pressures may bring the nucleus of a herniated disc back into the centre and relieve pressure on spinal nerves.
