Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment option for patients suffering from spinal injuries. The therapy involves the use of a machine that applies negative pressure to the spine, which helps to take pressure off of the discs and nerves in the spine. This can help to alleviate pain and improve the range of motion.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Spinal decompression works by using a machine to apply negative pressure to the spine. This helps to take pressure off the spine’s discs and nerves. The therapy can treat various conditions, including herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and pinched nerves.
The therapy is usually performed in a series of sessions, with each session lasting 20-30 minutes. Patients will lie on a table connected to the decompression machine during the treatment. The device will slowly stretch the spine, which helps to take pressure off of the discs and nerves.
What Are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression?
There are many benefits of spinal decompression, including pain relief, improved range of motion, and increased blood flow to the spine. The therapy can also help prevent further injury by taking pressure off the discs and nerves in the spine.
