If you have pain in your neck or back, spinal decompression will go a long way to supplying you with much-needed pain relief. Through this treatment, oxygen and nutrients can be supplied to the discs in the back and neck and can be rehydrated, thus creating more comfort and less pain.
If you can no longer go about your day without much discomfort, call us today to see if you are a candidate for spinal decompression.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression therapy aids patients with severe pain due to bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs. It can also be used to relieve and prevent certain types of sciatica, wounded or diseased spinal nerve roots, and worn spinal joints.
This therapy works by slowly stretching out the spine. This helps strengthen, position, and reduce the spinal disc’s friction by creating a negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated discs can retract, releasing pressure from the nerves and other structures in your spine.
How Spinal Decompression Works To Relieve Pain
Extreme back pain or neck pain is caused by the vertebrae’s compression, where pressure is exerted on the nerves, causing debilitating pain and discomfort. After you are assessed, you will be put on a decompression table. When on the table, a harness is wrapped around the waist and then fixed to the bottom of the table, while the upper body is secured to the top.
The table is motorized and, as soon as it is activated, the lower part travels slowly back and forth while the top part remains in place. Spinal decompression is a procedure that is essentially a form of traction by a decompression table.
This gentle intervention will continue to treat the source of the pain to build the opportunity for long-term pain relief. It is a pain relief solution that does not focus on dangerous surgery or long-term pain management with medications.
What Are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression can alleviate the pressure in the nerve that causes pain and is a non-invasive type of traction therapy that results in many benefits.
Some of which include:
- Improved posture by removing nerve interference in the spine.
- Quick treatment process – each therapy session takes about 30-40 depending on the patient’s case.
- Little to no pain – there is little-to-no recovery period, and no prescription is needed.
