Spinal Decompression Therapy
Although the effects of aging and injury are common causes of low back pain, several factors can cause the condition. Your spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae made of bone. Your discs, which function as shock absorbers to protect your spinal cord, lie in between each vertebra. Most back pain issues are the result of herniation and degeneration or wear and tear of these discs. Herniated, bulging, or otherwise compromised discs are protrusions that press on your surrounding nerves, causing pain or numbness.
Spinal decompression therapy addresses issues like diseased, bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs in your spinal cord. The treatment involves using a spinal decompression table to stretch the spine, taking the pressure off of your affected nerve roots. The procedure is relatively pain-free.
At BioCure Regenerative Medicine, our trained chiropractor guides you through the process, which widens the spinal canal and reduced pressure on your spinal nerves to return your range of motion.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression uses traction to gently stretch your spine, relieving pressure on your discs. Our spinal decompression treatments use motorized and computerized traction tables to apply a slow, gentle, prolonged stretch.
During spinal decompression therapy, you will be lying either face-up or face-down on the table, depending on your specific needs. We fit one harness around your pelvis and another one around your trunk. Then we operate the computer so that the table moves and stretches your spine in a certain way. This process of spinal traction decompresses discs that are currently putting extreme pressure on your nerves.
How Do I Know If I’m a Good Candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression is a low-risk modality with minimal side effects. This form of therapy is suitable for you if you:
- Have pain due to herniated and bulging discs
- Have recurring pain from failed back surgery
- Have persistent pain from degenerated discs
- Are interested in drug-free, non-surgical, non-invasive treatments
While spinal decompression is an effective treatment for a wide variety of pain conditions, only a qualified doctor can make the final determination if this treatment can help your back pain.
