Spinal decompression results in long term pain relief for many patients; although the treatment is used most often for patients with herniated discs. The method involves a mechanical device intended to separate vertebrae and thereby to relieve pain.
Spinal decompression is a non surgical treatment for spinal disc disease that works on the affected disc by significantly reducing the pressure inside the disc.
Conditions treated by spinal decompression
1. Spinal stenosis.
2. Herniated discs.
3. Facet syndrome.
4. Chronic low back pain.
5. Degenerative disc disease.
Standard treatment for lower back pain includes:
1. Chiropractic therapy
2. Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs
3. Epidural injections
4. Electrical stimulation (TENS)
5. Hot or cold packs with massage
7. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is gaining more popularity nowadays. In fact, this kind of treatment is often used when surgery fails to fix a herniated disc and may be used after an operation in certain circumstances to promote heating. It has been proven to be a safe and effective process for men and women suffering from back pain, as well as a viable alternative to spine surgery.
