TexStar Chiropractic - Spinal Decompression Therapy in Austin, TX

Lasting and recurring back pain can limit you in many different ways. Before it takes a toll on your daily routine you might be able to put an end to it. Some who suffer from back pain choose spinal decompression therapy in Austin, TX. TexStar Chiropractic is an experienced provider of Spinal Decompression Therapy.

Relief from lasting and recurring back pain back pain is one of the top benefits of spinal decompression. There are many doctors who choose non-surgical decompression therapy for treating degenerative disc disease to help patients recover faster and better from injured spinal nerves.

When you undergo a chiropractic spinal decompression therapy for your back pain, you will actually experience your spine being stretched gently so you will not feel pain when the force and position of the spine changes. The computer controlled traction relieves back pain by taking the pressure off the spinal discs by creating negative pressure in the disc. So those discs that are herniated or bulging may retract and in return promote movement of water, oxygen, and other nutrient-rich fluids that are essential when your discs are recovering.

Chiropractic Care Includes Cervical Manipulation to Treat Neck Disc Pain - Austin, TX

TexStar Chiropractic - Cervical Manipulation to treat neck pain, Austin, TX

The part of the neck which begins at the base of the skull and contains the smallest vertebrae is also called the cervical spine. The benefits of chiropractic include solutions that end neck disc pain.

The cervical spine is the part of the neck that holds the entire weight of the head and provides all of the structure and stability of the neck. A head is an average of about 12 pounds so you can just imagine the negative impact of this weight on your neck when you do not maintain good posture while sitting, standing, and walking. The neck also moves your head in nearly every direction which is an amazing and unique feature of this part of the spine. The problem is that this flexibility makes your neck very susceptible to pain and injury. Our chiropractic care clinic in Austin, TX offers treatment for those who experience problems in their cervical spine such as neck disc pain or related pain in the upper back or arms.

Neck disc pain can be very bothersome. Chiropractors ensure that the small vertebrae in your cervical spine are in good condition and properly aligned by performing cervical manipulation when indicated. This is a very precise procedure performed on the neck which improves the mobility of the spine, restores range of motion, and treats neck disc pain.

Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments for Radiating Pain in Arms or Legs - Austin TX

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 02, 2016

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is how we describe the symptoms coming from damage to or disease of the nerves. These symptoms are most commonly pain or numbness and tingling in the arms, hands, legs, or feet. Neuropathy can also show up as impairments in balance or muscle weakness.

TexStar Chiropractic - Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment, Austin, TX

There are many different causes for neuropathy including diabetes, medication, vitamin deficiency, and nerve compression but they all cause nerve damage. The good news is that something can be done.

The first step in treatment is determining the type of neuropathy you have.

Ischemic Neuropathy

The nerves rely on tiny blood vessels to bring them highly oxygenated blood. All cells in our body, including nerves, need oxygen to stay healthy and stay alive. The blood sugar spikes associated with diabetes causes damage to the blood vessels starting with the smallest ones which feed oxygen and nutrients to your nerves. Some pharmaceuticals as well as vitamin deficiencies can also contribute to collapse of the blood vessels. When cells do not get the oxygen they need from the blood and start to die, this is called ischemia.

By better controlling your blood sugar, using nutrition to support healthy blood vessels, and combining other therapies which promote cell repair, you can improve your body’s ability to stop and heal the damage to the nerves and blood vessels that are causing your problem.

Mechanical Neuropathy

Some common causes of mechanical compression of a nerve are: a bulged/herniated disc in the lower back, muscle spasm in the buttocks, or legs, or a direct trauma to a nerve. This is called a radiculopathy. When there is compression on a nerve, the signal that carries information from the cells in your body to your brain cannot be transmitted correctly. This can appear as pain, numbness, or tingling as well as issues with balance and muscle weakness.

With this kind of neuropathy we focus on removing the cause of the problem, which is the compression or irritation of the nerve root. We do this by using treatments like spinal manipulation, non-surgical decompression, MLS cold laser therapy, and other physio therapy approaches.

We do a thorough orthopedic and neurological evaluation to determine the type and severity of your neuropathy and then develop a custom treatment plan specific to your condition.

One of the many benefits of chiropractic care is neck pain relief. The drug free and non-surgical treatment options your chiropractor can provide can do more than just reduce your pain.

Your chiropractor will evaluate your spine for any issues that might be affecting your overall health. The spine is divided into three basic sections: cervical refers to the neck area, the mid back is called thoracic, and the lower back is referred to as lumbar. Problems at any of these levels can contribute to neck pain as well as other health problems. The most common treatment used in chiropractic care is called spinal manipulation. It focuses on improving the health of the “whole person” through safe and effective adjustments in the spine which improve the function of the nerves and surrounding tissue which also can eliminate pain in the affected area.

In addition to putting an end to neck pain, patients are educated in important matters that contribute to overall well-being such as nutrition, stress management, and lifestyle goals.

There are many benefits of spinal decompression. This non-surgical medical treatment has been clinically proven to safely and effectively relieve pain caused by degenerated or herniated spinal discs in the back and in the neck, even in severe cases.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression gives patients another option when trying to avoid surgery, prolonged hospital stays, and longer recovery time while also saving the patient thousands of dollars. Your doctor or chiropractor can tell you if you are a candidate for this revolutionary treatment that provides astonishing benefits with no surgery.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy in Austin, TX is an FDA-approved therapy for treating back pain. Spinal decompression painlessly decompresses the discs in the spine to relieve pressure on the affected nerves and spinal structures. This therapy actually creates a powerful vacuum force inside the spinal discs, rehydrating and reshaping them so that they return to their normal size and shape. Because the outer structure of the spinal discs are allowed to heal, patients then experience long-term pain relief that had been caused by disc bulging, herniation, or degeneration.
