There are quite a few factors that can be the cause of lower back pain. The pain can be caused from injuries to the natural effects of getting older. You see, there are soft discs between each vertebra that function as shock absorber to protect your spinal chord. When these discs herniate or degenerate, you will suffer back pain. If these discs bulge, you will also suffer pain and most likely numbness too. One way to resolve problems with your discs is through spinal decompression.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment to relieve back pain that is associated with disc injuries. Traditional treatments included surgery or chiropractic adjustments. Spinal decompression therapy is an option that has shown very good results. This treatment is non-evasive and provides gentle decompression of the affected discs through the use of a special table. First, you will be strapped to the table so when it moves force will be applied to the targeted discs. The gentle pulls are applied between relaxation periods. This motion gently pulls the spine apart and creates vacuum between the vertebrae pulling the disc back into shape.
