How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression stretches out your spine to allow for decreased inflammation and increased circulation. We can also use spinal decompression to readjust herniated discs or slipped discs associated with a sports injury. If your back is out of alignment, a spinal decompression treatment can correct your spine’s position. It is an all-natural treatment and corrective technique that is safe and surgery-free.

Can Spinal Decompression and Chiropractic Adjustments Help Improve My Performance?

Yes, by getting spinal decompression and routine chiropractic adjustments we can help you improve performance in several areas. In addition to correcting misalignments and vertebrae conditions, an adjustment also improves your mobility by correcting alignment issues. When you have your full range of motion you are better capable of performing. Additionally, regular chiropractic adjustments and decompression increase circulation of nutrient-rich fluid throughout your musculoskeletal system.

Should I Get Spinal Decompression Even If I Feel Fine?

Our chiropractor for athletes is best suited to answer this question. When you visit our San Diego chiropractor in La Jolla, Dr. Jeffers, he will determine if spinal decompression is beneficial for your treatment goals. However, in general, when an athlete gets spinal decompression it promotes health and well-being thanks to the improvement in circulation and mobility.
