Relieve Back Pain With Spinal Decompression Treatment At This Petaluma CA Clinic Looking for treatment for a herniated disc? If you answered 'yes', then this clinic is for you! DeSalvo Chiropractic has launched its chiropractic services in Petaluma, California. The clinic specializes in treatment for herniated discs and offers spinal decompression treatment. The little pads that lie between the vertebrae are called the intervertebral discs and each has a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center. These discs serve as a cushions or shock absorbers, so that your bones do not make contact with each other when moving. A herniated disc happens when the disc material ruptures to the point that the gel pushes outward. This can cause pain and numbness due to the irritation of the nerves and can be very serious in some cases. Chiropractic care has been shown to prevent the advancement of herniations and provide relief from the associated pain. DeSalvo Chiropractic also provides spinal decompression treatment for back pain. Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in in order to create a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or repositioning of the herniated or bulging disc material. The treatment creates a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc. Go to desalvochiropractic.c om for more info!
