Chronic neck or low back pain can be agonizing! After struggling with an old back injury I decided to do some research on my non-pharmaceutical and non-surgery options.
I learned of a cool new device from my favorite chiropractor in Palm Beach Gardens, Papa Chiropractic. It is called a spinal decompression treatment and it is the latest development in treatment of back and neck pain without injections or surgery. This cutting-edge technology treats herniated discs, bulging discs, and degenerative disc disease as well as symptoms of posterior facet syndrome and sciatica (pain stemming from problems with the sciatic nerve).
In the past, doctors would treat many of these disorders with oral medication, injections, prescribed periods of rest, physical therapy, and conservative chiropractic care. These treatments can still be helpful, but they don’t always eliminate the back pain conditions. Patients with persistent cases would face no choice other than spinal surgery.
The spinal decompression table presents a new, non-invasive treatment option. Patients can finally experience relief from chronic back pain without the risk, pain, expense, and lengthy recovery periods associated with surgical procedures. A spinal decompression table treatment program helps patients return at last to their healthy, active lifestyles.
Here is a helpful description from webmd.com that describes spinal decompression:
What Is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression?
Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
What happens during a spinal decompression session?
A patient lies on the spinal decompression table and relaxes as the device applies decompression forces to injured areas. Decompression is the therapeutic elongation of the spine in a slow, gentle manner in order to relieve pressure on compressed vertebrae and discs.
An easily accessible safety switch allows the patient to immediately stop decompression forces if desired.
