Las Vegas Chiropractor, Dr. Matthew Mortensen D. C., Offers Disc Decompression Therapy
Las Vegas NV, Dr. Matthew Mortensen DC of Lake Mead Chiropractic is pleased to announce that the procedure known as disc decompression is available at the office. Disc decompression therapy is a procedure which uses a specially designed table and a computerized program to gently reduce pressure on the vertebral pairs. Relieving pressure on the spinal discs allows them to rehydrate over time. The relief of pressure from bulging discs allows for nerve roots to be restored to full utility. The Las Vegas Chiropractor has the tools and expertise to implement decompression therapy.
When the spinal column contains subluxations, it can cause the intervertebral discs to be compressed. The result is a bulge of the discs into surrounding tissue. The bulging or herniated discs can negatively affect the flow of nerve signals to and from the brain. The brain may register in the brain as pain. The nerve compression can also cause other symptoms such as weakness or a headache.
The program which is set up for each patient is customized, after a thorough examination. The chiropractor identifies the areas of the spine where subluxations occur. With this data. Dr. Mortensen designs a full care plan which restores alignment to the spine. When the pressure is relieved, and he discs are rehydrated, the chiropractor makes additional suggestions to improved health.
Full healing of damaged tissues can be hastened by providing the body with necessary nutrients for rebuilding. The doctor may utilize techniques such as massage, electrotherapy or other methods to improve the rate of healing.
