Avoid Surgery with Decompression Therapy

What is Decompression Therapy?
Decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment that involves stretching the spine, creating negative pressure in the discs, and promoting the movement of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the disc. This therapy utilizes mechanical traction to gently and safely stretch the spine, which creates a negative pressure in the spinal discs, promoting the repositioning of bulging or herniated discs. The negative pressure also helps draw basic nutrients and hydration into the disc, promoting healing and health in the spine.

How Does Decompression Therapy Work?
When discs are compressed, the water, oxygen, and vital nutrients are squeezed out, causing damage and pain. Decompression therapy restores the natural mechanical function of the spine and gives the disc a chance to heal by reducing nerve pressure and improving blood flow to the affected area. Decompression therapy uses a computer-controlled table to gently stretch the spine, which takes pressure off the discs and allows healing nutrients to move into the disc. This therapy hydrates the spinal disc and promotes the regeneration of the necessary structures surrounding the spinal cord.

Is Decompression Therapy Right for Me?
Decompression therapy might be an excellent option for those who suffer from chronic back pain caused by disc bulges or herniations. Decompression therapy is also suitable for those who want to avoid the risk of surgical complications and lengthy recovery periods. If you experience pain caused by a previous surgery or have a spinal cord stimulator surgically implanted, decompression therapy is likely not the best option for you. However, it’s essential to schedule a consultation with a doctor who is knowledgeable in decompression therapy to determine if this treatment is right for your specific condition.

What to Expect During Decompression Therapy?
During decompression therapy, you’ll lay on a computer-controlled table, which slowly stretches your spine. The doctor will adjust the machine to tailor it to your specific needs. Each session typically lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, and you may require several sessions for optimal results. During the treatment, you might feel a gentle stretch sensation, similar to the one you feel when you stretch your back muscles but in a more controlled way.

Decompression therapy is an effective way to treat chronic back pain by creating a negative pressure that allows for the body’s natural healing. Stretching the spine creates a space between vertebrae to allow inflamed nerves or herniated discs to shrink and promotes hydration to the spine, leading to healing and reduction in pain. If you are experiencing chronic back pain and are looking for an alternative to avoid surgery, decompression therapy is an excellent option. Consult your doctor to determine if decompression therapy is suitable for your unique condition. Avoid surgery or pain medication by considering the possibility of a non-invasive approach such as decompression therapy.
