Lower back pain is a common problem all over the world and it can occur due to multiple reasons, which include poor posture and herniated discs.

Usually people who face these issues go for traditional methods of treatment like surgery; however, we all know how painful that can be. Furthermore, your spine is just not the same after you have undergone surgery.

This is why people have started turning to spinal decompression therapy in order to deal with lower back pain.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

This is a computer-aided technology that helps deal with pain in the neck and lower back. It has been cleared by FDA and has been around for quite some time now.

Let’s take a look at some of the questions that these people often ask:

What Conditions Does Spinal Decompression Treat?

Spinal decompression therapy is useful for treating different kinds of ailments. Some of these include bulging discs, sciatica, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis and degenerative discs.

What’s The Process?

During the process, the patient is asked to lie down on a computer-operated table. Their spine is then stretched and the pressure creates a vacuum in the spine, which allows the bulging discs to move back into place.

The pressure also reduces strain on the pinched nerves, reduces inflammation in your spine and provides relief from pain. The pressure applied on the patient’s body depends on various factors.

These include the person’s height, weight and severity of the injury. The treatment plan is developed based on what your body really needs.

We know you might be thinking whether the process is painful or not. Don’t worry it doesn’t cause any pain. You are treated in a safe and relaxed environment though you might feel a little discomfort initially but it goes away after some time.

How Long Does It Last?

Usually spinal decompression lasts for 12-20 sessions, which are conducted over a span of 6 weeks. Of course, the duration of treatments also depends on factors like severity of the injury. Usually the sessions last for about thirty minutes.

In addition to spinal decompression therapy, there are several other methods of treatment, which can help treat back pain. These include shock wave and massage therapy as well as chiropractic care.

I thought I was going to have to deal with plantar fasciitis for the rest of my life. I had done all the recommended steps from orthotics, icing, stretching, massage…nothing worked. I saw Jason. He said 5 treatments with shockwave therapy should significantly improve the problem. I said no way. In a way, I was right-it took 6 treatments but I’m pain free. Amazing. Great service and a product that works.
Thank you to Dr. Nanda and his great team of specialist for taking care me. Very friendly and knowledgable!
Here is what I say about my shock treatments. I have had chronic back pain for over 40 years. Nothing has worked for me and I have tried many, many types of back treatments. Nothing worked. I was going to go for laser spine surgery. Divergent was going to be my last “try” before laser surgery. I went in with absolutely NO expectations. I had one treatment, walked out thinking “okay, my back doesn’t hurt but that won’t last.” Well guess what? It works!!!! I have had 5 treatments since May, 2017 and I have no back pain. None! Without Divergent and Dr. Jason, my life would still be a painful one. Jason, you have saved me. Anyone with any pain needs to go to Divergent. With many thanks to all of you.
I have been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in both of my feet for over a year now and the pain was just too unbearable to deal with. I did all the recommended stretching, icing and other treatments that just didn’t help. So, I said enough is enough as I deserve to feel better than this and made the appointment at Divergent Health Care.
