How Spinal Decompression and Laser Therapy Can Help You Recover from Your Back Injury
If you’ve ever suffered from a back injury, you know just how debilitating it can be. It can make even the most simple tasks unbearable, leaving you feeling like you’ll never be the same again. But there’s hope on the horizon! At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, Dr. Mike Digrado has extensive experience treating all sorts of back injuries, both new and old. In this post, we’ll explore how spinal decompression and laser therapy can help you recover from your back injury, and get you feeling back to your old self again.
Can spinal decompression and laser therapy help with a back injury?
There are many different types of back injuries, but a few of the most common ones include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and sciatica. No matter what kind of back injury you’re dealing with, the pain and discomfort can be overwhelming. That’s where spinal decompression and laser therapy come in. Spinal decompression is a non-invasive procedure that uses traction to gently stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the discs. This can allow herniated or bulging discs to retract, relieving the pressure on the nerves and reducing pain. Laser therapy utilizes low-level laser light to reduce inflammation and promote healing. This can speed up the healing process and reduce pain in a variety of back injuries.
What types of energies can spinal decompression and laser therapy treat?
When it comes to back injuries, there are several common types that we see at Newport Center Family Chiropractic. One of the most frequent is a herniated disc. This occurs when the soft tissue that cushions the vertebrae of your spine bulges out of place, putting pressure on the nerves in the area. This can cause pain, weakness, and tingling sensations, typically in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.
Another common back injury that we see is sciatica. This occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down the legs, becomes pinched or compressed. This can cause a sharp, shooting pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs, as well as numbness and tingling. In severe cases, patients may even experience difficulty walking or moving their legs.
At Newport Center Family Chiropractic, we offer a range of treatments for back injuries, including spinal decompression and laser therapy. Spinal decompression involves using a specially designed table to gently stretch and decompress your spine, creating space between your vertebrae and relieving pressure on your nerves. This can be incredibly effective for treating herniated discs and other kinds of back injuries.
What are the benefits of spinal decompression and laser therapy?
One of the benefits of spinal decompression and laser therapy is that they are non-invasive, meaning no surgery is required. This can be a huge relief for patients who are nervous about the prospect of going under the knife. Additionally, these treatments are drug-free, which can be a positive for those who prefer to avoid taking medications. Lastly, both spinal decompression and laser therapy can be used in conjunction with other therapies, such as chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy, to provide a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all aspects of your pain.
Laser therapy, on the other hand, uses low-level lasers to stimulate healing and reduce inflammation. This can be a great option for patients who are experiencing pain and swelling in their back, as it can help to accelerate the healing process and reduce discomfort. In addition, laser therapy has virtually no side effects and is completely non-invasive.
It’s important to note that while spinal decompression and laser therapy can be incredibly effective, they may not be the best option for everyone. Patients with certain conditions, such as fractures, advanced osteoporosis, or severe degeneration, may not always be ideal candidates for these therapies. That’s why it’s important to consult with Dr. Mike Digrado to determine the best course of treatment for your specific injury.
