Back surgery such as spinal fusion surgery has become increasingly common over the last decade, but in many cases entails a long recovery period without a guarantee of pain relief. We at Masula Chiropractic, Neurology and Family Wellness in Chico completely understand that the pain of a pinched nerve, a herniated disc, or severe neck pain can be enough to make anyone feel desperate for relief.
Our chiropractor, Dr. Larry Masula, is experienced in helping patients find real and lasting pain relief — without back surgery. Spinal decompression can be performed non-surgically and is very successful at helping Chico patients find relief from back and neck pain, and their associated problems.
Chico Chiropractor Relieves Back Pain with Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Our chiropractor uses non-surgical spinal decompression therapy to remove excess pressure from the spinal column and to allow the body to heal naturally. Spinal stenosis is a condition commonly seen with back and neck pain. Spinal stenosis causes the pathways of the spine to shrink, and pressure starts to mount. This in turn causes the vertebrae in the back and neck to compress discs. This can be reversed with a non-surgical spinal decompression procedure. Decompression uses gentle stretching to pull the pressure off the spinal column and allow the discs to return to their proper state.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is not painful, and patients normally feel nothing uncomfortable during the procedure. A low pressure will be applied via a specialized decompression table which is adjusted to the ideal angle for each individual patient. Results from non-surgical decompression are quite good, often even better than those that can be achieved surgically. Spinal decompression does not require any long recovery periods, and patients can return to their regular activities soon after a treatment in most cases.
