Spinal Decompression Therapy

When your nervous system can't operate properly, neither can you. Pinched nerve tissue can have profoundly negative effects on your health, comfort, and function, whether it occurs from a traumatic accident or develops slowly as a chronic problem. But taking that pressure away from the nerves doesn't have to involve surgical alterations to your spinal column. Here at Magnolia Comfort Medical LLC, we can provide non-surgical spinal decompression therapy that achieves the same kind of relief, and without the risks, costs, and recovery time necessitated by surgery.

Causes and Effects of Nerve Compression

The human nervous system is a vast complex "tree" of channels. The stem of the tree, of course, is the spinal cord, which is protected by the bones of the spine. Major nerve roots branch out from the spinal cord through small gaps between the bones. These large conduits then branch out into smaller and smaller nerves throughout the body. Compression at any point along this network can cause the motor and sensory signals along the affected nerve to misfire. The higher up the "tree" this compression occurs, the more subsidiary nerves are affected. The resulting symptoms may include:

  • Pain

  • "Pins and needles" (tingling)

  • Loss of sensation (numbness)

  • Loss of muscle control

If a major cervical nerve root is pinched, these symptoms may be felt along your shoulder, arm, or hand. If the sciatic nerve roots are affected, you may feel them in your lower back, buttock, leg, or foot. Herniated discs, degenerative spinal conditions, and chronic spinal misalignment issues can also cause compression of the nerve roots.

Treating Neurological Symptoms Without Surgery

Many people turn to surgery to treat their spinal nerve compression. But most patients can get the results they need through non-invasive procedures such as chronic adjustments and cold laser therapy. Our chiropractor, Dr. Le, in Norcross will evaluate your neurological symptoms and spinal anatomy to find the source of your discomfort or loss of function. We can then administer non-surgical spinal decompression therapy through the use of a mechanized treatment table. These treatments can shift discs away from major nerve roots, permitting nerve signal to flow freely once again. Chiropractic adjustments can help normalize your overall spinal alignment. We may also recommend corrective exercises or lifestyle changes to help you avoid future bouts of nerve compression.
