There are many benefits to our non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. This is a back pain management and healing therapy. If you are living with chronic back pain, you may benefit from non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.
This therapy is a very safe way to relieve pain without too many medications and it provides longer-lasting pain relief because it facilitates healing in the discs that may be causing your pain.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy Explained
Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a way of gently stretching a specific spinal disc. This relieves pressure in the back, specifically the spinal discs. Spinal discs are gel-like and help cushion the bones of your spine. Gently stretching out the spine creates negative pressure in the disc causing a vacuum effect to suck in new fluid and nutrients and disc material. This takes pressure off the exiting nerve roots which alleviates both back and leg pain.
This can help retract bulging and herniated discs with continuous therapy, and with each therapy treatment, the gentle stretching of the spine allows fluids to enter the space and promote spinal healing. When oxygen and other nutrient-rich fluids can reach the discs, healing is facilitated without needing to operate.
This therapy is used to treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica, bulging discs, herniated discs, worn down spinal joints, and injured spinal nerve roots. Each of these ailments causes people great pain. This intense level of back pain can be and feel debilitating. Consider non-surgical spinal decompression therapy if you are suffering from any of these severe back ailments.
Other Benefits Of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy
One of the biggest benefits of this spinal decompression therapy is that you can potentially avoid a surgical solution to your pain. Spinal surgery, though it may be necessary and can be beneficial with its own merit, requires a long healing process. This isn’t a replacement for spinal surgery by any means, but some people are able to avoid the long recovery process of surgery with this style of therapy.
Other pain relief alternatives include anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, exercise, rest, steroid injections, and other long-term therapy and drug options. Extensive research has been done on non-surgical spinal decompression therapy and the pain relief it has brought people. The patients that were studied in this research reported that they were not only very pleased with the therapy but that their pain was significantly reduced over a period of 6 weeks. These patients were able to avoid invasive treatment options such as surgery and spinal epidural injections.
Who Benefits From Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Many people have found healing and pain relief with non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, but there are a few circumstances where this would not be of benefit to you. If you have a fracture, tumor, metal implant, or other significant spinal injuries, this therapy might not be of benefit to you.
Spinal therapy is a good option to consider for spinal disc injuries. The relief of pressure that comes from gentle stretching can help alleviate pain originating from the spinal cord or disc injuries. If you are experiencing pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling then this type of spinal therapy might be a good option for you.
