How Spinal Decompression Therapy Can Help Relieve Back Pain
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, drug-free approach to relieving pain and discomfort associated with various spinal conditions. It has proven to be a safe and effective way to treat lower back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and more.
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for back and neck pain caused by herniated or degenerative discs; sciatica, pinched nerves, and more. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine, creating negative pressure within the spinal disc that can help relieve pain, restore movement, and reduce inflammation. At Active Spine and Joint Institute, we use state-of-the-art, FDA-approved equipment to administer spinal decompression therapy in a safe and controlled environment. Our experienced chiropractors have the skills and knowledge to tailor the treatment to each patient’s needs.
How Does It Work?
Spinal decompression therapy is an innovative treatment offered at the Active Spine and Joint Institute, which works by gently stretching the spine to alleviate pressure on the discs and nerve roots. The treatment table uses computer-controlled traction that helps relieve back pain and other symptoms associated with herniated or bulging discs and stenosis. During the treatment, the patient will be positioned on a specialized motorized table, and you will isolate the affected spine area. The table then applies gentle, slow, painless traction to the spine. This traction helps to create negative pressure within the disc, allowing it to rehydrate and heal. Spinal decompression therapy helps create more space between the vertebrae, relieving pressure on the spinal discs and nerve roots while increasing blood flow to the area. The result is improved mobility and less pain.
What Are the Benefits?
Spinal decompression therapy offers many benefits to those suffering from chronic back pain. The most obvious benefit is the reduction of pain, which often results in improved mobility, posture, and overall quality of life. At the Active Spine and Joint Institute, our team of experienced medical professionals is dedicated to providing a comprehensive approach to treating chronic back pain through spinal decompression therapy.
Relief of Pain:
Spinal decompression therapy can help reduce the intensity of chronic back pain caused by herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and other conditions. This is accomplished by gently stretching the spine, relieving pressure on the nerves in the affected area. This can result in significant pain relief and improved mobility.Chronic back pain can lead to poor posture as the body compensates for the discomfort. Spinal decompression therapy improves posture by reducing tension in the spine muscles and allowing them to work more efficiently. This improved posture can help reduce pain and improve your quality of life.When the muscles and joints of the spine are relaxed, it can improve your range of motion and flexibility. This improved mobility can reduce the risk of injury and help improve your overall physical functioning.
Increased Blood Flow:
We have shown spinal decompression therapy to increase blood flow to the affected area. Increased circulation helps to deliver vital nutrients and oxygen to the affected area, which can help speed up the healing process and reduce inflammation.
Who Can Benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a safe, non-surgical treatment option for chronic back pain patients. It can treat various conditions, including herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. It is also a great option for those not responding well to traditional treatments. Such as medications, physical therapy, and surgery. This therapy can help people of all ages, regardless of their activity level or fitness level. Spinal decompression therapy can benefit anyone experiencing persistent back pain, numbness, tingling, or radiating pain in the arms or legs. If anyone diagnosed you with any of these conditions, talk to your doctor about whether spinal decompression therapy is right for you.
Is There Any downtime?
When spinal decompression therapy, downtime is minimal. A patient may experience minor soreness after treatment, similar to that expected after exercise. This usually passes within 24 to 48 hours. The only other downtime is the time that you require to attend therapy sessions.
