Is spinal decompression therapy the answer to your back pain treatment prayers?
If you’re like many people that suffer from back pain, hip or leg pain you have probably tried everything including pain reliever medicines, ongoing physical rehabilitation, chiropractic adjustments, steroid injections, acupuncture, and maybe even took the last resort, back surgery, but nothing has worked.
The pain is still there and on some days it completely ruins your quality of life. Many people have resolved themselves that this is just the way it has to be and have given up seeking treatment.
Spinal decompression therapy is an alternative back pain treatment that can stop the shooting, burning, and ongoing pain in your back and legs in just a few weeks.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a type of non-invasive disc rehabilitation that is safer and less invasive than alternate treatments. Plus, it eliminates the need for pain medicines, surgery and has no adverse side effects.
How can spinal decompression therapy help you?
To best understand how spinal decompression therapy works, we must first take a look at the lower part of the back and how it’s structured.
Unlike other areas of your body, your discs do not have a very good blood supply. This means that once they are damaged, the healing process is very poor.
You should understand that your disc gets its nutrition from the bones that are above and below it using a pumping motion that increases with movement. When your disc becomes damaged or torn, it no longer has the ability to maintain hydration, resulting in a dry and brittle disc. Unfortunately, over time without treatment, the result is further damage, inflammation, disc degeneration which creates ongoing pain and reduced lifestyle.
Spinal Decompression Therapy enables the chiropractor or therapist to safely, gently, and precisely apply tension on your lower back and create a negative pressure inside the disc.
It is the negative pressure that creates a vacuum effect and it actually draws the bulging or slipped material back into the disc center.
Unlike all other more traditional treatments for leg and back pain, Spinal Decompression Therapy actually heals your discs and makes them healthier.
