You might think you’ve tried everything if you have persistent back pain.
Fortunately, for certain conditions, an alternative treatment has been very effective in many patients: Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression.
Non-Surgical Spinal decompression therapy was developed to treat low back pain due to herniated or degenerated discs. It uses state-of-the-art technology to apply a traction force to alleviate nerve compression that is associated with back pain and sciatica. Non-surgical Spinal Decompression slowly stretches and decompresses the spine, creating negative pressure in the intervertebral discs. This pressure reversal creates an intradiscal vacuum to reposition bulging discs and push extruded discs back into place, relieving pressure on pinched nerves.
Following therapy, according to experts on the spine, nutrients, oxygen, and spinal fluids are thought to be pulled into the intervertebral disc to produce a healing environment. This will lessen not only your current pain but also the likelihood that you’ll experience further discomfort and pain in the future.
Should you do spinal decompression therapy?
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is not suitable for all pain conditions. So let’s take a look at non-surgical spinal decompression for pain relief, and you can decide if you need to discuss it with your doctor.
Below are specific cases that may be contraindicated:
- Recent spinal surgery
- A spinal infection
- A tumor in the back
If you have any of these conditions, talk to your doctor before undergoing spinal decompression. They will tell you if this treatment is safe for you.
How does spinal decompression work?
Spinal decompression is usually performed on a computerized table. The gentle, controlled traction helps stretch and lengthen the spine, decompressing the vertebrae and giving the intervertebral discs room to rejuvenate and heal.
On the lower back, traction is applied around the pelvic area. Again, a gentle, controlled pull provides a relaxing stretch to relieve tension around the vertebrae. The discs are able to return to their normal shape, relieving pressure on the surrounding nerves and thus relieving pain.
The intermittent distraction of the spinal cord using alternating traction forces is used in nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy. The cartilage, intervertebral discs, and nerves are all relieved of pressure. A herniated disc can be reduced by creating a vacuum effect on the disc, which reduces the strain on spinal nerves and improves symptoms such as radiating pain, numbness, and tingling.
The Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Benefits
- No surgery
- No recovery time
- No wounds to heal
- Painless therapy
- Results are felt immediately
- Effects are long-lasting.
There is some evidence that nonsurgical spinal decompression can provide long-term relief for people with chronic back pain. Studies have shown that patients who received chiropractic treatment, including spinal decompression, experienced significant improvement in pain and function.
We encourage patients to exhaust all conservative therapies for their disc problems before considering back surgery. Most patients see a significant difference in the long-term impact of using decompression and other non-invasive treatments.
