Persisting back pain can impact the quality of your life immensely. A recent study reveals up to 65 million Americans suffer a recent episode of back pain. If you live with chronic back pain and nothing seems to be helping, you can turn to spinal decompression treatments. Spinal decompression is a type of therapy designed for persons with chronic back pain and neck pain, and other related conditions.

How Does It Work?

Spinal decompression uses motorized traction that gently stretches the spine to treat back pain. The changes in the position and force of the spine create negative pressure in the disk, which takes off pressure from the spinal disks.

As a result, the bulging or herniated discs are forced to retract and thus take pressure off the faceted nerves. Ultimately it encourages seamless movements of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into your disc for effective healing.

Spinal decompression treatment sessions last for about 30 to 45 minutes, and you may need 20 to 28 treatments spread over five to seven weeks. Before the therapy, your doctor may also perform other types of treatments such as electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and heat or cold treatment to guarantee the best outcomes.

Who Is It Suitable For?

Spinal decompression is effective against several back pain symptoms. Your doctor can use non-surgical decompression to treat any or combination of the following conditions:

  • Back pain, neck pain, or sciatica
  • Degenerative disk disease, herniated disk, or bulging disk
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
  • Posterior facet syndrome or worn spinal joints
  • Muscle atrophy and weakness
  • Radiating nerve pain
  • Tingling and numbness in the extremities

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression has many advantages over surgical treatment options. First, the therapy is a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t require any medication and doesn’t have uncomfortable side effects.

Secondly, the therapy is not time-consuming, and patients get faster results than any kind of spinal surgery. Ideally, you can start experiencing pain relief as soon as the first session is over.

Spinal decompression also provides lasting natural pain relief by reducing the amounts of pressure on your spine, unlike medication that simply masks the pain.

Although spinal decompression therapy works for many people, it may not be ideal for pregnant women, those with any kind of spinal implants, patients with broken vertebrae, and patients with a failed back surgery.
