Is Spinal Decompression Therapy Right For You?

If you’re struggling with back pain, you’re certainly not alone. Back pain is extremely common among patients, with around 16 million Americans experiencing chronic back pain. If the pain is inhibiting your daily activities, seeking treatment is crucial to preserving your quality of life. 

It’s possible to achieve relief from back pain without having to undergo invasive procedures. Spinal decompression therapy is a chiropractic treatment method that could be right for you in achieving relief from back pain. It can also be a beneficial treatment option for neck and leg pain, which may often accompany back pain. While there is a surgical method of spinal decompression, it may also be performed non-surgically. 

Let’s learn more about spinal decompression therapy and whether it may be a good treatment option for you. 

Understanding Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Therapy

In nonsurgical spinal decompression, a motorized device such as a traction table is used to gently stretch the spine. In this process, the spine is realigned, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the spinal discs. 

With less pressure on the spinal discs, some types of spinal injuries may begin to heal. Pressure will also be relieved from the nerves around the spine, reducing pain and discomfort. Additionally, by removing pressure from the spine, spinal decompression therapy boosts blood flow to the spine. This allows oxygen and nutrients to reach the spine and facilitate the healing process. 

Is Spinal Decompression Therapy Right for You?

Spinal decompression therapy may help in the treatment of:

  • Chronic back or neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging or herniated spinal discs
  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Degenerative disc disease

If you suffer from any of these spinal conditions, talk to a doctor, such as one of the trained physicians at Florida Wellness Medical Group, about whether spinal decompression therapy could work for you.
