The Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy

Posted By Cobb Pain & Rehab || 19-Jul-2016

If you are experiencing pain caused by a herniated or bulging disc, spinal decompression may be the appropriate form of treatment for you. Unlike back surgery, this natural method allows you to avoid the risks and the long, painful recoveries associated with more invasive procedures.

Spinal decompression is performed on a decompression table with a motorized traction device. During treatment, the spine is gently stretched to relieve pressure from the herniated discs, bulging discs, and nerves in the spine. Additionally, this treatment increases the amount of nutrients and oxygen within the affected disc, which expedites the healing process.

In most cases, this form of treatment takes about 20-45 minutes. To get the most out of spinal decompression therapy, it is best to have a number of treatments performed for five to seven weeks. Of course, a chiropractor can explain the process in more detail.

Additionally, if you suffer from any of the following symptoms, spinal decompression treatment may be beneficial for you:

  • Sciatica pain
  • Degenerative Discs
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Numbness or pain in the extremities

In addition to spinal decompression, other forms of therapy, such as physiotherapy or massage therapy may be recommended to relieve pain and treat your condition.
