Spinal Decompression Exercise
We have seen in earlier articles how spinal decompression can help a wide variety of conditions including scoliosis and disk herniation. Posture re-education along with other chiropractic spinal adjustments techniques can greatly alleviate and even cure several lower and lumbar back problems.
Chiropractic Grove City treatment – In this post, we take a look at two such great exercises you can do in our clinic.
This exercise is a direct alleviation of the cervical column. It can be extremely effective and provide very quick relief when used properly. It consists of a “sling” like structure that attaches to a frame of a wall. The sling hangs low and the patient sits at a comfortable height with his or her chin resting on the loop and gently applies pressure, lifting the head and decompressing the cervical column. This creates negative pressure on your disk pushing nutrients into the disk
Such an apparatus is useful for conditions such as cervical disk herniations, spondylosis, and pinched nerves in the upper spinal decompression column. Old devices utilized doughnut-shaped water implements, but modern inventions have replaced them.
Inversion tables are one of the most widely used implements to help those with back pain. By reversing the body, the pull of gravity is inverted allowing the discs to decompress and regain fluid and nutrients. Grove City Chiropractors often use this type of table in combination with other therapies for a full workup. It has also been found that circulation improves after the proper use of an inversion table – athletes have been known to use them to great effect.
Another advantage of an inversion table is that patients can learn how to use it gently since there’s no need for a full immediate suspension upside down – so each person can find his or her own point of comfort. It actually feels great!
There are many helpful exercises that can be performed in order to help a patient recover from spinal injuries. Along with proper Grove City, chiropractic treatment and spinal adjustment, they can rapidly improve a person’s health and enable them to get back on their feet in no time.
