What is Spinal Decompression?
Most people suffering from chronic back pain and other related symptoms know how disruptive it can be to your daily life. Luckily, there is Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy. Spinal Decompression Therapy, also known as Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy, is a type of treatment well known and used by Doctors of Chiropractic. It is a very safe form of treatment involving stretching the spine using FDA cleared equipment similar to a traction table or other similar traction devices. These devices can be used anywhere alongside the spine, all the way from the neck to the lower back. The motorized traction device changes the force and position of the spine, relieving pain almost immediately.
Spinal Decompression devices use the basic principal of spinal traction commonly offered by Chiropractors, Osteopaths, and other appropriately trained health professionals. Doctors of Chiropractic, in particular, use this treatment to help relieve patients suffering from back pain, neck pain and leg pain. The traction and decompression devices are applied to the patient experiencing pain in a way to relieve pain and promote an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating or herniated discs.
Doctors of Chiropractic use Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy on patients who suffer from neck pain, sciatica, herniated or degenerating discs, worn spinal joints (Known as posterior facet syndrome) and injured or diseased spinal nerve roots. If you’ve tried physical therapy, exercise, steroid injections, bracing or acupuncture and still can’t seem to find relief from your pain, you may want to consider Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy. One of the greatest benefits of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression therapy is that it is a drug-free and holistic treatment used to heal pain. There are no drugs, no anesthesia, and no operation to go under. However, if you have a fracture, tumor, are pregnant, have osteoporosis, an abdominal aortic aneurysm, or metal implants in your spine, it is best to talk to your doctor to see if Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is right for you.
