If you have lasting back pain and other related symptoms, you know how disruptive to your life it can be. You may be unable to think of little else except finding immediate relief. With the various treatment options available, being able to find a more holistic treatment instead of turning right to surgery can be possible. In certain cases, surgery can be avoided altogether, allowing your body to heal in a more natural manner. Some people turn to spinal decompression therapy for herniated disc treatment, sciatica pain relief, and more, restoring comfort back into their lives.
What is spinal decompression?
Spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that helps with back pain relief. Spinal decompression works by gently and carefully stretching the spine which changes the force and position of the spine. By doing so, this course of action will take pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine. This type of therapy may help relieve back pain to assist you in getting back to everyday life with minimal to no pain.
Over time, negative pressure from this therapy may cause bulging or herniated disks to retract. That can take pressure off the nerves and other structures in your spine. This, in turn, helps promote the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
Doctors have used spinal decompression therapy to treat:
- Back, neck pain, or sciatica pain relief– which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg.
- Bulging or herniated discs or degenerative disc disease.
- Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet syndrome.)
- Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots (called radiculopathy.)
