If you have been dealing with painful, unwanted back pain, you have probably considered many options for how to deal with the pain in the most effective way possible. While there are several options available, one of the most effective and long-lasting solutions is spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy creates space between the discs in your spine and can help heal an array of painful conditions such as herniated, degenerative or bulging discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, or spinal stenosis.
Spinal surgery is one of the most invasive and painful surgeries to recover from. If you have been told you may be a candidate for spinal surgery down the road, you may want to ask your provider if you can first be treated using spinal decompression therapy. There are many benefits to avoiding spinal surgery:
No vertebral fusing
Spinal decompression therapy offers relief for back pain through various treatments that remove the pressure off of your spine. Motorized traction works on the spine to gently and effectively help the spine stretch into its natural position. These treatments will allow pressure to deplete from your spinal discs and other components of your spine.
If you’ve been enduring a pinched nerve, you are no stranger to numbness, tingling or pain in your spine. This pain doesn’t only affect your spine though; you may also feel pain in your back, neck, hips, even down through your legs and feet. Treating bulging, herniated and degenerative discs from around the nerves helps to relieve pressure which may be pressing on the nerves and causing pain.
Spinal decompression is a gentle method of placing the discs in your spine into their proper alignment. This allows the pressure that forces your discs out of place to be released, which stops the discs from pressing against nerves. This action creates negative pressure in-between your spinal discs which not only can mitigate the pain of a pinched nerve, but also reduce pain and inflammation throughout your body.
Any time you go under for a surgery you run a risk of something severe happening. By utilizing spinal decompression, you are giving your body the chance to heal itself on its own, without running the risk of a major surgical flaw. Spinal decompression can be performed multiple times and with each occurrence, the chance is greater that your spine will return to its natural position on its own.
When spinal decompression is performed, your spinal discs are able to relax, release tension and invite healing into your backbone. If you allow your body to heal itself you may find that you feel overall healthier and that the healing process has moved more quickly than if you had gone through an invasive surgery.
Spinal decompression treatment plans incorporate several sessions that may span anywhere from 4-6 weeks, depending on the severity of your spinal injury. You may notice relief immediately after the first session, but it is not uncommon for relief to set in until after a few sessions. In most cases, consistent treatment over the course of time ultimately leads to healing.
