Chronic back pain can be a debilitating condition that affects your mobility and regular daily routine.
Multiple factors can cause back pain, such as:
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Pinched nerves
- Sciatica (lower back, hip, and leg pain)
- Degenerative disc disease (DDD)
- Spinal stenosis
- Post-surgical pain
Spinal decompression therapy is being used to offer long-term pain relief and restore natural health for many individuals.
How Does Decompression Therapy Work?
Spinal decompression works by slowly and gently stretching your spine to relieve pressure within compressed discs and vertebrae. The therapy represents a viable alternative for patients who have tried surgery or over-the-counter medications without success.
The procedure uses a traction table that works to position your lumbar spine for optimal decompression. Before the process begins, a member of our medical team secures you with a harness on the decompression table. You usually feel a gradual lengthening of your spine as the discs are relieved of excess pressure.
Therapy sessions are relatively short, with each lasting about 30 minutes, with no downtime or additional medication needed. Your doctor will discuss a treatment schedule that depends on the severity of your condition.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a specialized, motorized traction device with an on-board computer that controls the force of traction. This reduces your body’s natural propensity to resist external force and generate muscle spasms.
Decompression therapy reduces pressure through traction, physical therapy, and traditional manipulation. Stretching and re-positioning your spine is slow and gradual to relieve your spine and discs from excess pressure.
Spinal decompression therapy may be used to treat multiple disorders of the spinal column, including:
- Disc injury
- Spinal stenosis
- Pain that travels down the leg or arm
- Neck pain
- Low back pain
Spinal decompression may be suitable for individuals who sit daily. When we decompress the vertebrae by gently stretching them apart, fluid is allowed to make its way back in. It enables nutrients and oxygen to get back into the discs where they can facilitate the healing process.
If you are suffering from neck pain or back pain, we have successfully used this therapy to help a large percentage of people with spinal conditions. The decompression force involved in the treatment is calculated and adjusted based on your specific needs. Sessions are pain-free and conducted as an outpatient procedure at our medical clinic.
