All About Spinal Decompression Therapy

Posted on Friday, August 31st, 2012 by anna

We, at Global Pain & Spine Clinic, keep well informed of the advances being made in treatment methodologies to combat pain-related conditions. That is why, we have been quick to include spinal decompression therapy in our range of pain management procedures.

Spinal decompression therapy is one of the latest pain treatment methods that has been tested and proven to be extremely effective and immensely safe to be implemented in varied cases of pain caused by injuries or trauma to the spinal disc(s), repetitive stress, and/or poor posture. These may cause a spinal disc to compress that in turn, can lead to a bulge in the afflicted region. The latter condition exerts pressure on the adjacent nerves or causes a painful misalignment. Compression of the disc also makes the latter weak and prone to further injuries. For the uninitiated, spinal decompression therapy is a FDA-approved non-surgical and non-invasive method that tries to decompress the discs. In spinal decompression therapy, a distraction force is slowly and gently applied on the afflicted disc to elongate it and pull it back into place and shape. Additionally, this therapy also promotes natural healing and regeneration by pulling back nutrients and hormones to the disc region.

While the efficacy of the spinal decompression therapy is evident from its modus operandi, its safety can be gauged from the fact that it can be recommended for patients of any age and even those who cannot undergo drastic surgical procedures. What is more, spinal decompression therapy can effectively treat a wide range of spinal disorders like chronic back pain, herniated disc, sciatica, and degenerative disc disease. This therapy has also been found to immensely benefit those who have had unsuccessful back surgeries.
