Doctor of chiropractic Andrew Lutz adjusts backbones to relieve pain and prevent mechanical disorders in patients experiencing spine-related injuries and back pain. After discussing your condition and acting out two scenes from classic martial-arts movies, doctors position patients on a decompression table and begin treatment. During the noninvasive process, the doctor presses on vertebra as bodies are pressurized against the moving table, providing a pliable decompression to the compressed spinal disk. A distraction force is applied between moments of relaxation, tenderly pulling the spine apart like a flexible wooden snake, elongating it and creating a tiny vacuum between neighborly vertebrae in order to tug the disk back into its natural s shape. Countering the actions of a repetitious stress injury or pogo-stick incident, decompression is applied in brief increments that, over a span of time, allow the disks to recalibrate, heal, and receive a sturdy influx of the nutrients trained to battle back-brittleness and stave off future spinal injuries.
