When you have a sore neck or back that interferes with your normal daily routine, spinal decompression may be an effective pain relief option for you. Common conventional treatments like pain medication just cover up the symptoms, but the cause of the pain is never addressed. This all-natural alternative therapy works with your body to get it back into alignment and get you out of pain.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that uses traction to gently stretch your spine to help relieve a range of issues. The idea is to restore the space between your discs so there is sufficient cushioning between the vertebrae.
The spacing between vertebrae becomes an issue when your spine is compressed due to an injury, regular aging, or just everyday activities. As you go through spinal decompression treatments, that space will be restored and your discomfort will be alleviated.
Once order has been restored in your spinal column, the pain will no longer have a need to exist and you’ll get the relief you’ve been waiting for. It’s just your own body and the gentle forces of nature that relieve your condition and get you up and moving freely again.
How It Works
The way space is restored between your vertebrae starts on a decompression table. After you lie down and get comfortable, your legs are strapped to the bottom of the table and your upper body is attached to the top of the table. The table is in two parts, and each part moves in opposing directions to provide a gentle stretch. The table will stretch your spine, then release it, one section at a time. This movement is painless and requires no downtime after the treatment and there are no harmful side effects.
Conditions that Spinal Decompression Can Help Treat
Spinal decompression therapy is effective for treating many different conditions to provide lasting pain relief, so you can get back to your normal routine. Some of these problems may be caused by an injury, while others are caused by a degenerative condition. These include:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Degenerative discs
- Ruptured discs
- Bulging discs
- Pinched nerves
