Spinal Decompression Therapy to Treat Back Pain
If you or any of your loved ones have lived with constant and nagging back pain for a long period of time then you’re probably accustomed to taking daily medication. People who take painkillers often become reliant on them, although they don’t fix the problem. They merely provide short-term relief for people who are struggling with severe pain. If you suffer from back pain one alternative could be spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression is a form of spinal traction. Spinal traction has been used by health professionals for many years to help treat herniated discs and other back problems, but hasn’t been fully effective. In the past, people have complained the spinal traction has further aggravated the lumbar region. Decompression treatment helps solve these particular problems.
The way that spinal decompression therapy works is that it slowly pulls your back and gradually stretches your back. This makes sure that it doesn’t trigger a back spasm. The decompression machine will also monitor the person’s reaction to the specific treatment. Depending on the patient’s reaction to the pulling, the machine will usually reduce or intensify the pull to allow the muscles to relax.
Because it can sense muscle spasms, it helps give the spinal decompression therapy machines an effective way to lower the pressure that is being put on the herniated discs. It can help to reverse disc pressure, which can help relieve the pain associated with herniated discs.
Spinal decompression machines have a success rate between 80-90 percent. Most of the people who do report positive results often experience long-term healing and pain alleviation. For these reasons, we believe this is the best treatment program to help treat herniated or bulging discs and other spinal problems.
This treatment will also depend on a variety of different factors. Depending on your specific age and severity of the injury, the treatment might be suitable for you. If this program is used properly it can be extremely useful for people who have serious back problems and pain. People who use spinal decompression therapy often have reduced pain and are able to return to their normal routines.
