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.
