Lasting back and neck pain is not a new concept for the majority of the world populus. Neither are headaches, and even a tingling feeling in your legs and other extremities. But what isn’t always as clear is the options you have to relieve the discomfort. One is to have invasive and costly surgeries that may or may not alleviate your symptoms. Another is an in office visit with a spinal specialist that uses spinal decompression therapy to gently and carefully stretch the spine to allow healing to begin.
How Spinal Decompression Works
Life is filled with constant movement. Between your home life and your work, you put your body through a lot of strenuous activity. Spinal compression can be caused by pulling, lifting, bending and twisting. Over time, the wear and tear causes pressure to build on the bundle of nerves, or spinal cord, that sends the messages from the brain to the muscles and nerves. Other more traumatic events like car accidents can cause an acceleration or even instant impact upon the compression your spine is under. Other less common conditions are scoliosis, spinal tumors, and bone diseases.
Spinal Decompression Therapy uses the latest motorized traction technology to target the spine and alleviate the pressure the spinal discs and nerves are under. You remain clothed and lay in a relaxed position. The machine gently manipulates your lower half to contract and relax the spine through the use of a harness. This allows for oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids to reach the disk and begin repairing the damage. It can also allow for any misaligned segments to begin to shift back to proper positioning. The best part? It has a 96% success rate and is virtually painless.
