Back pain and related symptoms can be very discomforting and disruptive to daily body functions. Most people suffering from back pain opt for spinal decompression therapy to aid in back and neck pain relief in situations where spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and other treatment options haven’t been successful. If you have questions about non-surgical spinal decompression, your chiropractor at Health Advantage Physical Medicine in Pasadena, CA, can answer everything you need to know.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy that aids in relieving pain in the back, legs, and arms. It is applied to patients to relieve pain and promote optimal healing in herniated, bulging, and degenerated discs. It also offers back pain relief and treats pain associated with sciatica.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an alternative to invasive surgical treatments used to relieve spinal disorders and back pain. Spinal decompression helps treat disorders associated with herniated or bulging discs and the pain that results from them. It is a safe, non-invasive, and effective treatment of spine disorders, and depending on the nature and extent of the injury, it might be paired with other forms of treatment.
During spinal decompression, a chiropractic professional uses a traction device to gently stretch the spine, which creates negative pressure on the discs. This allows displaced spinal discs to retract while also improving circulation to injured tissues. The length of the treatment depends on the severity of the condition, but you will experience significant relief after just one session.
This treatment option is ideal for people who would rather avoid surgery and those who don’t respond to more conservative forms of treatment. The treatment is safe, comfortable, and effective for everyone, and side effects are rare. When you first visit our office, our chiropractor will assess your condition to determine whether or not spinal decompression is right for you.
