For people who are suffering from severe leg pain or back pain, spinal decompression therapy may serve as a viable option to consider. After all, dealing with these types of pain does not only limit one’s ability to make certain movements, but these can also impact the quality of their life. If non-invasive treatment is preferred, then it is worth looking into this therapy for the improvement of your condition. Find out more about how this treatment process works and what it can do for you.

How It Is Done

Spinal decompression therapy is performed by a chiropractor to patients who are experiencing pains in the leg, neck or back. To decompress the spine, a motorized device such as a traction table is used. This way, the pain caused by compressing the spine is relieved and eliminated through a few treatment sessions.

Several devices may be used for spinal decompression, which offer the same benefits that spinal traction can do. These devices are utilized by osteopaths and chiropractors for treating their patients who experience painful neck and back. In addition, it can promote quicker healing and recovery for those who have herniated, degenerating and bulging discs, which also cause pain and limited range of motion among patients.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Through spinal decompression, a certain amount of pressure is created in the disc. This is responsible for allowing a good supply of healing nutrients to flow and hasten recovery. In addition, a repositioning of bulging or herniated disc can result from the negative intradiscal pressure in problem areas.

Overall, the fact that spinal decompression is non-invasive and all-natural form of treatment make it a practical choice who do not want to undergo surgical procedures to relieve the pain they are experiencing. Moreover, as the right level of pressure and decompression are delivered to these painful areas, the condition will slowly improve and return to normal.
