What is Spinal Decompression?
Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a non-invasive method of treating neck and back pain caused by conditions such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or sciatica. The treatment involves the use of a specially designed table or device to gently stretch the spine and create negative pressure within the discs. This negative pressure can help to relieve pressure on the nerves and reduce pain.
What are the benefits?
Pain relief: Non-surgical spinal decompression can provide significant pain relief for individuals suffering from chronic back pain, sciatica, bulging or herniated discs, and other spinal conditions. The gentle stretching of the spine helps to reduce pressure on the nerves, which can alleviate pain and discomfort.
Non-invasive: Unlike surgery, non-surgical spinal decompression is a non-invasive treatment option that does not require any incisions or anesthesia. This means that there is no risk of infection, scarring, or other complications associated with surgical procedures.
Safe and Effective: Non-surgical spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment option for most individuals. It has been shown to be effective in reducing pain and improving mobility in individuals suffering from a variety of spinal conditions.
Improved Mobility: Non-surgical spinal decompression can help to improve mobility and flexibility in individuals suffering from back pain. By reducing pressure on the nerves and discs in the spine, individuals may be able to move more freely and perform daily activities with less pain and discomfort.
Cost-Effective: Non-surgical spinal decompression is much less expensive than surgical procedures. This makes it a more cost-effective treatment option for individuals who are unable to afford surgery and other invasive treatments.
Studies support the benefits of the treatment. Dr. John Leslie, of the Mayo Clinic, conducted research that indicated non-surgical spinal disc therapy is 88.9% effective, based on a multi-center, non-randomized pilot study.
The patients included in the research had been suffering chronic back pain for an average of 10 years. Two weeks of treatment was enough to produce a 50% reduction in pain scores.
