Back Doctors In San Diego Utilize Spinal Decompression Therapy To Get Rid Of Back Pain

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Spinal decompression therapy is a type of nonsurgical spinal therapy that is also noninvasive. It is used to treat severe and chronic back pain that is a result from different types of spinal conditions. Some of these back pains are caused because of pressure that is exerted by an expanded spinal disc to the spinal nerves.

Back pain can also be a result of several arthritic issues. It turns out that there are many different health conditions that could be benefited from this type of treatment. Many patients find quick relief from this type of therapy.

Spinal decompression chiropractors in San Diego use spinal decompression therapy to treat various types of conditions. Of all the different types of conditions that spinal decompression therapy could help, a herniated and bulging disc is the most common. When the spinal disc is herniated, it exerts a lot of pressure on the spinal nerves; this health condition results in a lot of excruciating pain. The decompression treatment will relieve the pressure from the expanded or damaged disk and allows it to go back to its normal size.

Degenerative disc disease is another common condition that requires back treatment. Spinal bodies can be compressed when there is a loss of disc height. This is caused by spinal compression. When there is too much compression, the surrounding nerves can be constricted which leads to back pain. Spinal decompression therapy can help to alleviate the pressure on the degenerative discs, helping to alleviate the back.

Spinal decompression therapy treatment in San Diego is available at New Century Spine Centers. The chiropractors there are specialists in the treatment of back and neck pain. Spinal decompression helps pain from disc herniations, disc bulges, sciatica, facet syndrome, and disc degeneration. New Century Spine Centers can be reached at 619-630-9153.

By decreasing the pressure within the disc, the disc is able to rehydrate, thereby restoring the normal height to the disc and reducing the irritation to the joints and other structures. As the disc is distracted, the tears in the disc are brought into alignment. The result is a functional pain-free spinal joint. The use of the spinal decompression device and protocol creates an environment for a disc that optimizes healing of the disc and the surrounding tissue. The program focuses on long term relief. Spinal Decompression is the treatment of choice for lower back pain. It’s non-invasive and without the side effects of drugs and surgery.

Scientists in Chicago have discovered new clues into what role the brain plays in chronic back pain (CBP). The investigators used magnetic resonance imaging brain scans to compare the morphology of 26 individuals with CBP with 26 pain-free control subjects.

According to the report “patients with CBP showed 5-11% less neocortical gray matter volume than control subjects. The magnitude of this decrease is equivalent to the gray matter volume lost in 10-20 years of normal aging. The decreased volume was related to pain duration, indicating a 1.3 cm(3) loss of gray matter for every year of chronic pain.”

The study also showed that CBP patients had decreased gray matter density. “Our results imply that CBP is accompanied by brain atrophy and suggest that the pathophysiology of chronic pain includes thalamocortical processes,” conclude the authors.

“…for the management of low-back pain, chiropractic care is the most effective treatment, and it should be fully integrated into the government’s health care system.”
The Manga Report (1993)

Disc Herniations Reduced by Chiropractic Adjustments
Cervical and lumbar disc herniations are commonly encountered in clinical chiropractic practice. Clinical studies and case reports have addressed the efficiency of chiropractic management for disc herniations. Imaging studies have shown disc re-absorption on follow-up CT or MRI subsequent to non-operative medical care. Of the 27 patients studied by repeat MRI, VAS and physical exam, 22 or 80 percent had a good clinical outcome. This consisted of reduced VAS scores below 2 and resolution of the patient’s radicular pain. Seventeen of these 27 patients, or 63 percent, not only had a good clinical outcome but had evidence of resolution or reduction of disc herniations evident on repeated MRI.
