You’ve most likely heard that adjustments of the spine can help not only with pain in the neck and back but with improvements in health and function all over the body. This is because the spine is linked by nerve pathways to systems throughout the body, and adjustments in the spine influence how well those systems operate. If you’re looking for pain relief, a greater range of motion, healing or any other outcome, spinal decompression from Herrington Chiropractic may just be an answer.
When looking for a chiropractor in Hattiesburg, you want to find someone who can deliver a range of different treatments to ensure you get exactly what you need. While many types of spinal treatment exist – including the diversified “hands-on” technique, the Gonstead technique, and the activator and pro-adjustor techniques, both of which use instruments – one of the best is spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression in Hattiesburg relies on applying traction to the spine to get it to stretch out or decompress. This creates a release of pressure between the vertebrae. This is helpful for people suffering from herniated or bulging discs, which occurs when two vertebrae sit too close to one another and crush or compress the disc between them.
When you receive spinal decompression in Hattiesburg from a qualified chiropractor, they will likely also teach you exercises that can help you stretch and decompress your spine on your own. That way you can continue the benefits even outside of your treatment sessions.
Spinal decompression for neck pain or back pain usually involves an inverted table or other apparatus that helps to manually stretch out the body. The result is negative pressure in the spaces between vertebrae, helping to bring nutrients and fluids to the area that will assist in healing the disc, reducing pain and increasing the ability to engage in the activity.
Note that this type of spinal decompression is manual, but surgical methods also exist. If you are experiencing neck pain or back pain, however, it is a good idea, to begin with, the noninvasive techniques provided by a chiropractor.

I've been receiving chiropractic care for over 10 years and have seen multiple chiropractors throughout that time. Dr. Herrington is without any doubt the best that I've seen. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking chiropractic care in the Hattiesburg area. .
