This Neck Pain Treatment is a Life Saver | Chiropractor for Neck Pain in Lubbock, TX
Hey, it’s Dr. Greg Marin here 1-Spine Chiropractic, today we’re gonna be discussing neck pain.
Bulging & Herniated Discs
The number one cause of neck pain is a bulging and herniated disc. This is big fancy way of saying your disc has worn out, it’s compressing, and putting pressure on the nerve. That’s the pain that you might feel in the neck. Depending on how bad that bulge or herniation is there might be radiating pain down the arm causing numbness, tingling or heavy feeling that’s radiating pain down the arm.
Spinal Decompression Machine
So what we do is we put someone on a Spinal Decompression Machine that helps take pressure off the disc and open up those spaces. Once we open up those spaces that this is able to rehydrate, taking pressure off the nerve and getting rid of the pain healing the body. How spinal decompression works, it causes the negative pressure in the disc by doing a gentle tug and pull to open up those spaces. And what happens is that this is able to go back in place, taking pressure off the nerve, healing the body and getting rid of the radiating pain down the arm. We were able to do this without any shots, drugs or surgery, but the cool thing is it’s gentle and effective. And the thing is treatment times lasts anywhere between 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the patient’s case.
