Spinal Decompression Therapy is a treatment that helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine using a traction table or similar motorized device. The goal is to relieve pain and increase functionality in the spine.
Due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge and become herniated or degenerate over time. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine and in the legs. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues.
Spinal decompression can help with the following ailments:
- Back or neck pain
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Degenerative disc disease
- Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
Spinal decompression treatment alleviates pressure and elongates the spine, relieving pain and allowing the body to heal faster
After spinal decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed. Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression such as diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient. It is nonsurgical and painless.
There are various kinds of surgical spinal decompression, but they are usually classified as a laminectomy or a microdiscectomy. This specialized treatment can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. Creating space and lowering pressure in the spine will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the discs. These nutrients are important for improving functions of the body. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a way you would not be able to at home.
