Spinal decompression is a non-surgical therapy that can reduce or eliminate this discomfort and improve the quality of life for many people. This procedure is considered safe, with a low risk of side effects. It is a non-invasive, outpatient treatment that does not require any incisions or anesthesia.
The spine is made up of vertebrae separated by discs that act as shock absorbers. When these discs become compressed due to injury or wear and tear, it can result in pain, numbness, or weakness in the back and legs.
Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. This change in force and position of the spine takes pressure off the spinal discs, in particular bulging or herniated discs, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, the disc is pulled back into position, and the flow of nutrients and other substances necessary for healing is facilitated.
Spinal decompression has a wide range of applications and can benefit a variety of individuals. Those suffering from chronic lower back pain, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, or a relapse or failure following surgery, with no apparent cause, can find relief through this non-invasive therapy.
Spinal decompression can also be beneficial for those who have been involved in an accident or suffered a sports injury. The therapy may help in the recovery process by reducing inflammation and promoting healing.
There are many key benefits of spinal decompression. Most notably, it can provide pain relief, improve mobility, and enhance overall quality of life. With spinal decompression, many patients can return to their normal daily activities without the pain that once held them back.
In addition to pain relief, spinal decompression can also help to promote healing. The process helps to create a better environment for healing by improving the flow of oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the damaged disc.
Another significant benefit of spinal decompression is that it's a non-surgical, drug-free treatment option. This means that it does not carry the same risks and side effects associated with surgery or long-term medication use.
It's also typically less expensive than surgery, making it a more accessible option for many.
