In the past, patients that would visit a doctor complaining of pain would be given a prescription. They would be told not to partake in strenuous physical activity, and they might be given a recommendation for physical therapy. In the event none of that was working, the next option was surgery. With spinal decompression, that no longer has to be the case.

Why Does Back Pain Occur?

There are a number of reasons why patients feel pain in their backs. It could be from an injury or simply from aging. The vertebra that protects the spinal cord has soft discs in between each section. The discs are there to absorb shock and protect the vertebra and spinal cord. When a disc herniates or degenerates, it can inflame and put pressure on the nerves in the surrounding area. It puts a strain on the nerves, and that’s where the pain and numbness occurs.

Chiropractic Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is one of the most important advancements in medical treatment. It has been FDA approved and patented. Chiropractors, doctors, pain specialists, and physical therapists around the world utilize it for patients with back issues. Invasive procedures no longer have to be the only answer.

Visiting a provider that performs spinal decompression can be done daily for five weeks. The sessions can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the seriousness of the case. Most people that undergo spinal decompression report feeling better after just a few visits. By the second week, vast improvements are noticeable.

The treatment is completely safe and rare instances of side effects have been reported. There have been a few mild cases of muscle spasms. They are usually temporary and disappear after a short time.

Completely Free From Pain

Most people that deal with back pain have had their issues for quite some time. After a while, it just becomes their new normal. With spinal decompression therapy, it can all change for the better. Lower back pain, sciatica, and herniated or deteriorated discs can be treated by a trained professional. The pain that was once an everyday nuisance will no longer exist at all. When other treatments fail to get the job done, this one works.

Who Qualifies For Treatment?

Anyone over the age of 14 can get spinal decompression therapy. The patient must be able to commit to four weeks of care. They must have had a previous treatment that failed or back surgery that is older than six months that was ineffective. He or she also must have pain from a herniated or bulging disc in the lumbar that is at least four weeks old.

Pregnant women, people with screws and rods, anyone with severe osteoporosis, or a patient with severe peripheral neuropathy will not qualify for spinal decompression treatment. All options can be discussed with a professional.
