5 Ways Spinal Decompression Can Help After an Accident

Spinal decompression therapy is a modern, non-surgery traction procedure that effectively treats many areas of pain and disc issues, most commonly in the neck and back. Cervical decompression therapy is recommended for many patients who experience chronic neck pain or have bulging or herniated discs in the cervical spine. Of the many ways neck pain can be caused, neck pain experienced after a car accident is very common and is typically a result of whiplash. Spinal decompression therapy can be very effective for the recovery of neck pain associated with a car accident.

1. Alleviates Pressure:

Spinal decompression therapy performed on the neck for disc issues resulting in neck pain creates an unloading of the cervical spine which decreases the pressure on the discs between the vertebrae.

2. Increases Blood and Nutrients:

The controlled releasing of pressure also increases proper blood flow and the ability for nutrients to aid in the disc healing process.

3. Strengthening:

Spinal decompression therapy helps to strengthen the muscles in the treated area which in time stabilizes the neck. With consistent maintenance, this makes it difficult for the neck pain to resurface at its original, most severe level again.

4. Positive Structural Change:

Spinal decompression works to gently stretch the spine in a way that changes the force and position of the spine. Positive results after a few sessions of spinal decompression aid in the retraction of the disks thus a healthy structural change to your spine relieving your neck pain.

5. Properly Functioning Nervous System:

Disc issues and degenerative changes narrow the spinal passage way which compresses the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the central passage of nerve roots to exit and travel throughout the body so when this is negatively affected, your nervous system does not function as it should.
