"Leading Edge Chiropractic in conjunction with ProSpinal Decompression"

Dr. Bryan Hansen

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a lot more than a chiropractor popping your back, as you’ll discover at Leading Edge Chiropractic in Reno, NV. Dr. Bryan Hansen knows that one of the main causes of back pain and neck pain stems from joint fixations: that’s when the capsule around a spinal joint becomes tight and tender restricting the normal movement of the segment.  This leads to localized muscle spasms, local and radiating pain.  Joint fixations are treated with a combination of techniques, including applied pressure, soft tissue therapies, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints (called adjustments).

Dr. Hansen is trained in a variety of adjustment techniques. Some are done by hand; some require the use of specialized instruments.

Spinal Decompression

Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing areas of herniated disc back into place.

Decompression achieves this by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intra-discal pressure. This creates essentially a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieve pressure.

As the ligaments that hold disc material in place become stretched or torn due to bulging and herniation, decompression strengthens the ligament bands that hold the disc material in place to heal & prevent future recurrence.
