Spinal decompression chiropractic treatments involve stretching the patient’s spine using a motorized device such as a decompression table. The table relieves the pressure on the patient’s spinal nerves which have become irritated by bulging or herniated discs, sciatica, or vertebrae that have become misaligned. Unfortunately, normal wear and tear from aging are the primary reason discs become thin and weaken, and eventually rupture or bulge. Other causes of this disc degeneration include sitting or standing for long periods of time, lifting improperly, or any other activity that places stress on the spine for extended periods.  

During a treatment session, the chiropractor Laurel, MD patients recommend will strap the patient comfortably and securely to the table, which provides distraction forces to the patient’s spine. Spinal decompression chiropractic treatments interrupt and reverse the damage that all of this wear and tear has put on the discs. Proteoglycans are a protein the body produces that provides hydration and swelling pressure to tissue. This enables the tissue to withstand compressional forces. Disc degradation occurs because of the decrease in the production of this protein. The treatment removes the pressure from the disc and restimulates the production of proteoglycans.

Even patients who are not suffering from any disc issues or misaligned spine can benefit from spinal decompression chiropractic treatments as a way to keep proteoglycan levels up and maintain a healthy spine.
