Are you living with chronic back pain? You’re not alone. In fact, according to the American Chiropractic Association, approximately 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time. If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment option to provide relief, you may want to consider spinal decompression therapy.
What is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses gentle traction to stretch the spine and take pressure off the discs and nerves. This therapy can effectively treat herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, and other conditions that cause back pain.
How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works
Spinal decompression therapy is typically performed on an outpatient basis. During the procedure, you will lie on a table connected to a computer. The computer will control the amount of traction applied to your spine as you lie comfortably on the table.
The therapist may also use manual traction during your session. This treatment involves the therapist applying pressure to your back while you remain still. The therapist may also move your legs or arms in specific ways to stretch your spine and relieve pressure on the discs and nerves.
Most spinal decompression therapy sessions last 20-30 minutes. You may need multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy
There are many benefits of spinal decompression therapy, including
– Relief from back pain
– Improved mobility
– Decreased inflammation
– Increased blood flow to the discs and nerves
– Reduced pressure on the discs and nerves
– Stimulation of the production of new collagen fibers (which helps to heal damaged tissue)
