Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure used to relieve pressure on the spine. It can help reduce pain and improve movement while promoting spinal health.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a type of treatment used to help those with chronic back pain. It is a non-invasive approach to treating lower back pain and neck pain caused by disc degeneration, herniated disc, spinal stenosis or sciatica. Spinal decompression is a type of traction that works by gently stretching the spine. This treatment is done by a trained professional on a specialized table designed to decompress the spine.

During a spinal decompression session, the patient lies down on the table and is strapped in place. The table is then adjusted to the desired levels of traction and tension. The tension levels are adjusted to create a stretch in the spine and then gradually increase over time. The amount of time spent on each session varies depending on the patient’s needs, but typically lasts between 30-45 minutes.

What is Expected of Spinal Decompression?

This type of treatment is used to reduce pain and improve the body’s ability to heal itself. It can help reduce inflammation, relieve pressure on the discs, and improve the range of motion in the lower back and neck. In some cases, it can also improve the posture of the patient. It is important to note that spinal decompression is not a cure for chronic back pain, but it can help reduce the symptoms and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

Overall, spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for those who suffer from chronic back pain. It is important to talk to a doctor before beginning any type of treatment, and make sure that the doctor is knowledgeable about this type of therapy. When done correctly, it can help reduce pain and improve range of motion, which can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life.
