Cervical Radiculopathy Treated with Spinal Decompression Therapy
The second most common type of radiculopathy happens in the neck. When a nerve root in the cervical spine (neck) is compressed by a bulging or herniated disc it can cause symptoms of pain, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness that can radiate anywhere along that nerve’s pathway into the shoulder, arm, and/or hand.
The tightness and discomfort that comes with cervical radiculopathy can be debilitating, resulting in limited range of motion, inflammation and pain. Thankfully, there is an increasingly popular medical treatment option; decompression therapy, which can help ease symptoms and start the healing process. In this article, we will explore the benefits of decompression for cervical radiculopathy.
How Does Spinal Disc Decompression Therapy Help Cervical Radiculopathy?
Marine City Chiropractor specializes in spinal disc decompression therapy to help alleviate the symptoms associated with cervical radiculopathy. The treatment works by gently separating the problem disc(s), creating a negative pressure inside the disc to pull water, oxygen, and nutrients into the disc. This process helps rehydrate the disc, bringing in the nutrients needed to heal fibers and slow down the degenerative process. As the disc is re-hydrated, the shock absorbing properties are restored. In many cases, some of the lost height is restored as well, creating more space for the nerve.
