Cervical Decompression

What You Need to Know

Cervical decompression is a non-invasive treatment option for individuals who suffer from neck pain or injuries. It involves gently stretching the spine to relieve pressure on the cervical discs and nerves. This technique has gained popularity as an alternative to surgery or medication, and chiropractors at ChiroFit Studio in Chatsworth, California are skilled in this practice.

Cervical Decompression

What is Cervical Decompression?

Cervical decompression is a treatment that involves the gentle stretching of the spine to relieve pressure on the cervical discs and nerves. The cervical discs are located between the vertebrae in the neck and act as shock absorbers for the spine. Over time, these discs can become damaged or degenerated, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the neck, shoulders, arms, and hands. Cervical decompression works by creating negative pressure within the discs, which can help to draw in fluids and nutrients, promoting healing and pain relief.

How is Cervical Decompression Performed?

Cervical decompression is typically performed using a specialized table that allows the practitioner to control the amount of traction being applied to the neck. The patient will lie down on the table and a harness will be secured around their head and neck. The practitioner will then activate the table, which will gently pull on the neck, creating a stretching sensation. The amount of traction applied will be carefully controlled to ensure that it is safe and effective for the patient.

Benefits of Cervical Decompression

Cervical decompression has several benefits for individuals who suffer from neck pain or injuries. Some of these benefits include:

Non-invasive: Unlike surgery or other invasive treatments, cervical decompression is a non-invasive treatment option that does not require any incisions or anesthesia.

Pain relief: By gently stretching the spine, cervical decompression can help to relieve pressure on the cervical discs and nerves, reducing pain, numbness, and tingling.

Improved mobility: Cervical decompression can help to improve mobility and range of motion in the neck, allowing individuals to move more freely and comfortably.

No downtime: Unlike surgery, which may require a long recovery period, cervical decompression does not require any downtime. Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
