Lower back pain is uncomfortable and a disappointment to anyone.

A recent article in US News indicates that more than 80 percent of people experience back pain at any time in their life, while a good 30 percent of them live with back pain on a daily basis.

But technology has managed to reduce these pains. How? With non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. The doctor gently stretches and relaxes the spine intermittently. The procedure creates negative intradiscal pressure that puts the herniated disc back into position. Additionally, it increases faster healing in the disc by creating a passageway for essential healing nutrients in the body. 

There are many spinal decompression therapy centers in the United States, get services in the local area like Los Angeles, CA, New York and the state where you live.

How does spinal decompression work?

The procedure is simple and painless.

During a spinal decompression session, our patients lie on a motorized table with their clothes on. The lower half of the table is movable.

The doctor then places a harness around the patient's hips that is attached to the lower side of the motorized table.

A typical treatment session lasts approximately 30-45 minutes. With 20-28 treatment sessions spanning eight weeks, your pain is history. The effects of the therapy are visible after a couple of sessions. But keep in mind to attend all of them for maximum results.

It is important to remember that each patient reacts differently to pain and treatments. Patience and consistency are the key.

If you find the following cases, you are a prime candidate for this therapy:

  • Bulging / herniated discs, sciatica/facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease. These conditions cause chronic
  • back pain that requires non-surgical spinal decompression.
  • A failed back surgery syndrome
  • When a doctor advocates for spinal surgery

Lastly, spinal stenosis.

  • Non-surgical spinal decompression may not work if:
  • You have titanium rods, fusion cages, or other surgical hardware in your body.
  • In cases of spondylolisthesis: clinically unstable back
  • spinal infections or cancer, which is a rare condition
  • You experienced a recent vertebral fracture
  • severe osteoporosis
  • ankylosing spondylitis
  • abdominal aortic aneurysm
  • pregnant

Benefits of this innovative therapy

On average, most of us spend our time sitting down. Consequently, leading to decompression of the spine, the disc wears out and eventually degeneration. The therapy makes your spine less susceptible to degeneration.
Pain relievers are great, right? No. While they only mask pain, naturally, non-surgical spinal decompression addresses the root cause of pain.
Unlike spinal surgery, spinal decompression is non-invasive and does not require medication. On the contrary, it is fast considering the time it takes, and your pain begins to disappear after a few sessions. Also, there is no recovery after surgery, which could take months.
For patients with common problems such as sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome. Profit a lot. In that, they get a better natural alternative of treatment instead of drugs and sometimes surgery.
