Spinal Decompression For Back Pain Relief

Back pain is a common problem that affects millions of people worldwide. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis. Many people with back pain turn to surgery as a solution, but not everyone is a candidate for surgery or wants to go through the invasive process. Thankfully, there is an alternative treatment option that is non-surgical, effective, and has a faster recovery time: spinal decompression.

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses a specialized table to gently stretch the spine. This creates a negative pressure within the discs, which helps to reposition the bulging or herniated disc material back into its proper place. This reduces the pressure on the nerves and helps to alleviate back pain. The decompression table also allows for a specific targeting of the affected area, which helps to improve the effectiveness of the treatment.

Spinal decompression therapy has been found to be effective in treating a wide range of back pain conditions, such as:

  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Arthritis
  • And more

In a study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine, spinal decompression therapy was found to be more effective than surgery in treating herniated discs. Another study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine found that decompression therapy was effective in reducing pain and improving function in patients with chronic low back pain.

In addition, chiropractic care is usually recommended as a complementary treatment. Chiropractic adjustments can help to improve flexibility, strength, and stability of the spine. This helps to prevent the pain from returning and also helps to improve the overall health and well-being of the patient.

Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery for back pain. It is non-invasive and has a faster recovery time. It’s also an effective treatment for patients who are not candidates for surgery or who want to avoid the invasive process.

With the help of spinal decompression therapy, you can achieve relief from back pain and improve your overall health and well-being. Contact our office today to schedule your free consultation.
