What is Spinal Decompression?
This is a term frequently thrown around but hardly understood by those who can really benefit from the procedure. Spinal Decompression is a type of traction therapy that gently stretches the spine, in return reducing the pressure placed on your discs. Non-surgical Spinal Decompression can be used for patients with herniated or bulging discs in the lower back and neck.
How it Works
As your spine stretches the bulging or herniated discs withdraw to their original position. The removal of this pressure aids in getting water, oxygen and nutrient-rich fluids to your discs, that they otherwise weren’t receiving, and allows them to heal properly. Spinal Decompression also assists in patients with Sciatica who experience pain and numbness as a result from a disc compressing part of a nerve. The number of treatments is determined after an initial exam and incorporated into your overall rehab program.
Does it hurt?
Short answer is, no. The advantages of Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression include:
- Non-surgical- No needles. No knives. No recovery time. Surgery not required!
- Extremely safe- Not only is it painless but some patients actually fall asleep during their spinal decompression session.
- FDA cleared- OK, so I know that’s not saying much but this isn’t some voodoo treatment I came up with last night.
- Affordable Cost- Relieve pain and have money to spare? That’s right, go buy those new running shoes you’ve had your eye on.
- Preventative Therapy- For those of you who don’t skip leg day, all that heavy squatting is compressing your spine. This is not an excuse to skip leg day. Instead incorporate Spinal Decompression into your routine to prevent a herniated disc. You got this, Quadzilla.
