Dr. Hoa Nguyen and his team at Dallas Spine Centers help Carrollton TX residents and those in the surrounding areas with their back pain through treatments such as spinal decompression. This procedure is safe for most people, all-natural, no drugs, and non-surgical. Let's discuss exactly what's entailed in the process and see if spinal decompression in Carrollton TX is the right option for you.

General Information

Spinal decompression is a treatment is the best option for disc treatment. Dr Nguyen may strap you onto a spinal decompression machine called the DRX9000 spinal Decompression device. He will then properly connect you to the device so that part of the machine controls the upper part of your spine, and the other half controls the lower part.

When we turn on the machine, one half of our body is tugged slightly in one direction, and the other is tugged the opposite way. This causes a separation between your discs and the vertebrae in your back.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression in Carrollton TX

Spinal decompression serves the purpose of taking pressure off the sensitive discs in between the vertebrae. As a result, they're able to heal without the pressure. In some cases, the discs may retract, which takes the pressure off the nearby nerves and soft tissue. More nutrients can reach the area, which further promotes healing.

Conditions Helped With Spinal Decompression

Although not all back conditions can be treated with spinal decompression, those affecting the discs can. For instance, our practitioner may recommend this treatment if you have degenerative disc disease, which is when the discs wear out over time during the aging process. They lose flexibility and hydration.

Our practitioner may also recommend this treatment if you have a herniated or bulging disc. If you have a herniated disc, it has a tear in its outer lining. As a result, the contents of the disc may leak through and irritate the surrounding nerves and soft tissue, causing symptoms like pain, weakness, and numbness. A bulging disc, on the other hand, consists of the shell of the disc weakening. The content then presses on the lining and causes it to bulge. This is less likely to cause pain and other symptoms, but it can cause issues for some people.

Who's Eligible for Spinal Decompression

For a majority of people, spinal decompression is safe. However, if you have osteoporosis, this treatment could cause a fracture in your vertebrae. It's also not for those who are pregnant or have certain cardiovascular problems.
