What is Spinal Decompression Treatment?

Did you know that over 65 million Americans suffer from back pain every year? Back pain is also the sixth most expensive condition to treat in the United States. For those searching for a non-surgical solution for their chronic back pain, Spinal Decompression Treatment is one of the popular alternatives to surgery.


Spinal Decompression Treatment

Spinal Decompression Treatment is a therapy that utilizes motorized traction to slowly, and gently stretch the spine. This stretching of the spine releases pressure on the spinal discs, which are the soft, rubbery pads in between each vertebrae. When the spinal discs are put under pressure from the spine, it causes pain and can lead to chronic conditions. Spinal decompression is an effective alternative to surgery, and also has no downtime so you are free to continue about your daily life with no restrictions.


How Does Spinal Decompression Treatment Work?

By using a motorized traction table that is controlled by your doctor, the spine is gently and slowly stretched to alleviate pressure on the spinal discs. Spinal Decompression Treatment changes the position of your spine to relieve compressed nerves and other structures in the back from built up pressure. Not only does this treatment relieve pressure and help to alleviate pain, it promotes the natural healing abilities of your body. When the spine is stretched and relieved of pressure, it allows essential nutrients, water, and oxygen to move freely throughout the spine, promoting natural healing. Spinal Decompression Treat is used to treat chronic back pain, sciatica, herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, and other injured or diseases discs.



What are Treatments Like?

When you receive spinal decompression treatment, your doctor will instruct you to either lie face up or face down on the motorized table. You are strapped onto the table, and your doctor will begin the treatment. Your doctor will control the movement of the table based on your need. Your spine will slowly stretch and your doctor will customize your treatment sessions according to your back. An average spinal decompression treatment takes between 30-45 minutes. Several treatment sessions are recommended for optimal relief and results.
