Spinal Decompression Therapy in Westlake, OH

Your spine houses your spinal cord, a bundle of nerves that carries messages between the brain and the body. If these nerves are compressed or damaged, it can lead to pain, restricted range of motion, muscle weakness, and dysfunction throughout the body. The discs between each vertebra serve as shock absorbers for the spine, allow for flexibility, and create space for the nerves to exit the spinal cord and service the body. They have a tough, fibrous outer layer surrounding a soft, gel-like center. Due to wear and tear, these discs can start to wear out and even collapse, putting pressure on the adjacent nerves and causing pain, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness, loss of sensation, and other nerve dysfunction.

A bulging disc occurs when the disc’s outer layer weakens or becomes damaged. As a result, the disc protrudes or bulges outward, extending beyond its normal boundaries. The bulge may press against nearby nerves or spinal structures, potentially causing pain and other symptoms. If the outer layer becomes so weak that it tears, the gel-like center can seep out of the disc and apply direct pressure on the nerves. This is a disc herniation.

Treatment for disc injuries, like a disc bulge or herniation, can vary widely. The traditional medical approach to treating disc injuries involves drugs and surgery to remove damaged tissue. The chiropractic approach presents a much sought-after alternative. Chiropractic offers a natural, non-invasive approach to correcting musculoskeletal problems and optimizing the nervous system to function and heal better.

How Our Spinal Decompression Plan Works

1. Get To The Root Cause of The Problem

Pain is not the problem, it is merely alerting us to the problem. We follow your pain to the root of the problem, so we can uncover your body’s seen and unseen dysfunction. Addressing that underlying dysfunction will lead to long-term, sustained health and well-being.

2. Create The Best Plan of Action

A one-size-fits-all solution won’t work – even for two patients with the same issue. We create a plan of action that is based on your unique situation and health goals, ensuring the solution suits you and not the other way around.

3. Get Back To Living Your Best Life

Our body is capable of incredible things. You deserve a life of abundant joy. Illness or injury interferes with that life, making simple tasks more difficult and draining your energy. A body in full health is able to flourish, unleashing your full potential onto the world.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy reduces spinal pressure by moving the discs back into place and realigning the joints. This can be done through traction, a method that uses stretching and pulling to relieve stress on the spine. A traction table slowly pulls the patient, stretching their spine and relieving pressure on the discs. This can alleviate pain and, more importantly, allow the discs to rehydrate and heal. In the case of a bulging or herniated disc, the soft center, no longer feeling the pressure, can reabsorb into the disc, and the outer layer has the chance to heal.

A decompression session can take 10-15 minutes and is pain-free. Many patients report that decompression feels good, as it relieves stress on the spine that is causing pain and other symptoms.

Common conditions and symptoms that are effectively treated by spinal decompression include:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated disc
  • Bulged disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • TMJ
  • Headaches

Everything about Paramount Chiropractic is 5 stars! All of the amazing reviews are what initially prompted me to choose Paramount for my chiropractic care, and now I can see what all of the great reviews were about! Dr. Greg is highly knowledgeable and you can tell he really cares about his patients. He pushes to get to the root of the problem. I have been to Chiropractors before, and Paramount is by far the best experience I have had. Such a great atmosphere too. I have seen a great improvement and would highly recommend Paramount Chiropractic to anyone!

Dr Greg and the ladies at the desk have been wonderful to work with! They have been super accommodating to my schedule and I have learned a lot from them in terms of what the spine controls, etc. The appointments usually last 15-20 minutes which is very convenient and they will take the time to talk with you about any questions instead of rushing to the next person.

I have been going to Paramount Chiropractic for 5 weeks now. When I went I had been up all night with back pain and they were able to get me in right away the next morning. The process has been simple and straight forward. I have experienced much relief and living with less pain. I look forward to seeing continued positive results from the care I receive. The most important thing is the care has worked! Very thankful.

Who Can Benefit From Spinal Decompression?

Athletes, office workers, seniors, people injured at work, auto accident injury victims, and anyone suffering from back pain may benefit from this form of therapy.

Spinal decompression therapy may help athletes’ performance, flexibility, pain relief and recovery, and muscle soreness.

Office workers, or anyone sitting for long periods, may be in danger of developing spinal compression through the pressure from prolonged sitting and bad posture.

Seniors typically deal with spinal issues as their bodies age, and their discs deteriorate. The therapy can help slow down this process and strengthen muscles and tendons, resulting in better flexibility and range of motion.

Accident victims can also benefit from spinal decompression therapy if they have some spine-related trauma.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression and Chiropractic Care

You can reduce back pain by decompressing pressure on nerves, muscles, and discs in your spine through spinal decompression therapy. It is easier to treat problems through this type of therapy as fewer risks are involved. There is no need to take time off of work to recover. In just 10-15 minutes, decompression can reduce muscle spasms and improve muscle strength and flexibility.

Spinal Decompression Therapy helps to improve your circulation by increasing blood flow to the area and allowing your heart to pump more efficiently. You will feel less tired after treatment as a result. You can move more freely and possibly even notice a change in your posture if you have upper back, neck, and shoulder issues.

Spinal decompression therapy is combined with chiropractic care to help patients improve their flexibility, range of motion, and overall health. You can see improvements after only a few treatment sessions, empowering you to return to your daily activities more efficiently.
