Most adults will suffer some back pain during the late stages of life. This pain can quite debilitating hence affecting the sufferer’s ability to do any work or end any started task. People who have suffered from bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs should seek chiropractor assistance.
Some of the possible causes of back pain are herniated or slipped discs, or even a sciatic condition. This condition involves pain in the lower back which at times may radiate to the legs and back the same pain. The major cause of such pain is a herniated disc. Cases can be treated through traditional forms of chiropractor treatment, but chiropractic spinal decompression therapy should be considered.
Chiropractic Spinal Decompression Therapy is a therapy conducted by chiropractors with the aim of increasing a patient's vertebral space. Once the human spine is under compression, blood does not properly flow to areas which are affected. Thus fewer nutrients and less oxygen reach these areas, resulting in damage which may lead to problems including migraines.
In regard to Spinal Decompression Therapy, most chiropractors advocate for the non-surgical form of treatment as it is much less invasive, hence not much stress is impacted on the body. Generally, Spinal Decompression Therapy is used for treatment of a compressed spine as a result of one or more of several possible ailments. The most successful forms of treatment are often non-surgical with no need of medications, and also, they take a much shorter time to heal.
Spinal Decompression Therapy is a comfortable, non-surgical method of treatment administered to relieve pain - including radiating pain - in the neck, legs, arms, and low back, and to treat conditions such as discopathy, spinal stenosis, bulging discs, and herniated discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy entails use of a traction table which is motorized for stretching the spine gently, cycling between distraction and relaxation. This is an important point. Our table is state-of-the-art and applies tension, and relief of the tension, in a precisely controlled manner so as to work with the bodies reactions and to not stimulate the muscles to counteract.
The motion adjusts the spine’s tension and position hence alleviating pressure on the discs; discs are gel-like spacers in between vertebrae that serve to cushion and absorb pressure. This motion creates a kind of vacuum effect in those discs. The vacuum effect is also referred to as intra-discal negative pressure with its main benefit being to help the herniating or bulging of discs by putting them in a phase of retraction hence promoting water, fluids rich in nutrients, and oxygen to move through the discs. The nutrient delivery ensures torn and degenerated disc fibers get an opportunity to heal.
Phases Involved in Spinal Decompression Therapy
A Spinal Decompression Therapy treatment is painless and simple. With a harnesses attached at the pelvis and trunk of the patient's body, the patient, fully clothed, lies down on the Spinal Decompression Table which is controlled by a computer and operated by a licensed, trained chiropractor. As per the needs of the patient, the doctor will choose a specific program of relaxation and traction cycles. Typically, a session lasts for 20 to 45 minutes. Most patients undergo therapy for about six weeks totaling some 12 to 20 treatments.
