Disc Issues in Victoria

Im spine how are youIf you’re experiencing back pain, it’s important to understand the underlying causes to find the right treatment. One common cause of back pain is disc compression, which can result from degenerative changes or injury to the spine. However, there are several different types of spinal compression, each with their own unique symptoms and treatment options.


Types of Spinal Compression

Degenerative disc disease is a type of spinal compression that occurs when the disc itself begins to deteriorate over time. This can cause the disc to become smaller, leading to compression of the surrounding nerves and muscles. Another type of spinal compression is disc herniation, which can occur due to heavy lifting or other physical strain. In this case, the disc may push out into a space where it doesn’t belong, causing pressure on the nerves and creating pain and discomfort.

Stenosis is another type of spinal compression that occurs when the spinal canal becomes clogged with debris. This can cause pain and a feeling of numbness or tingling in the affected area.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that can help alleviate the symptoms of spinal compression. By using specialized tables that pull in the y-axis (lengthwise), decompression therapy can create more space between the vertebrae, reducing pressure on the discs and nerves. This can help reduce inflammation and promote healing, leading to faster recovery times.

Spinal decompression therapy can also be useful for patients with stenosis, as it helps flush fresh blood and nutrients into the area, reducing inflammation and promoting healing. Patients who undergo spinal decompression therapy often report less pain and greater mobility after treatment.
