Spinal decompression is an advanced form of spinal traction used in the treatment of disc-related back pain and associated conditions such as sciatica. The main difference between true spinal decompression and traction (and inversion) technologies is that spinal decompression machines are set up to “trick” the spinal muscles into staying comfortable during treatment, allowing for greater changes in disc pressure than with regular traction.
A full spinal decompression treatment programs that includes spinal decompression and other adjunctive treatments may seem somewhat expensive. In fact, it is a much lower-cost treatment alternative than surgery.
Spinal Decompression is an innovative technology that offers true healing for those suffering from chronic, severe back pain and neck pain. It is non-invasive, non-surgical, and involves no drugs or medications. Spinal Decompression delivers a very high success rate for patients who qualify for care and follow the program designed by the doctor. It is successful in healing even when other predictable therapies have failed.
Spinal decompression therapy can be used to treat numerous types of painful conditions that are related with degenerative discs, disc herniation and posterior facet syndromes. The computerized traction device helps relieve the chronic soreness by targeting the problematic areas of the spine in an exact manner.
