Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical traction based treatment that can effectively treat neck, back, arm, and leg pain. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy has successfully treated many back pain sufferers who received unsatisfactory results with traditional treatment methods such as bed rest, pain medications, physical therapy, acupuncture, surgery and traction.
Some of the conditions that can be treated with this therapy are described below:
1. Degenerative Disc Disease
2. Spinal Stenosis
3. Pinched Nerves
How spinal decompression therapy works?
It is used to treat severe and chronic back pain that is a result from different types of conditions. Some of these back pains are caused because of pressure that is exerted by an expanded spinal disc to the spinal nerves. They could also be a result of several arthritic issues.
How long is the treatment program?
It depends on the complexity and extent of the spinal condition and the rehabilitation required, however we typically treat 2 to 3 times per week for approximately 10 weeks, transitioning from passive to active treatment as the patient responds.
Conclusion: Spinal decompression therapy has saved many people from spinal surgery. It has been studied that surgery is no more effective than non-invasive treatments, including chiropractic care, for patients with lumbar disc herniation causing sciatica.
