Is Spinal Decompression Therapy an Answer to Your Back Pain

Are you suffering from chronic neck and back pain? Does the very thought of going under the knife sends chills down your spine? Do you have a phobia of anesthesia, infection, injections and everything else related to surgery?

Spinal Decompression Therapy maybe the answer you are looking for.

Several medical studies document the effectiveness of this treatment. One of the recent studies recorded up to 90 percent reduction of disc herniations in nearly 70 percent cases. According to another study, the treatment yields ‘good’ to ‘excellent’ results particularly for the patients with ruptured disc. Regardless of the cause – protruding or bulging discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica or even failed surgery – anyone with back or neck pain can be helped by this traction-based treatment.

The Treatment

    – Forget the operation theater, in this treatment you will simply have to rest on a computer-connected therapeutic table, when a padded harness will apply gentle pressure on your spinal column. The decompression primarily targets your intervertebral discs and joints, and the spinal muscles, the trio that is most commonly responsible for your pain.
    – The pre-programmed computer determines the intensity and duration of pressure. This precisely-controlled tension along the axis of your spinal column helps decompress the intervertebral discs. The entire procedure stretches and decompresses your spine electronically.
    – Each session runs for approximately half an hour. You are in complete control throughout the session and can shut down the session any time you feel uncomfortable.
    – The fully-automated procedure is monitored by a technician.
    – It’s common to see improvements just after a few sessions, but don’t leave the treatment halfway thinking your pain has gone for good. A treatment plan typically takes 10 to 30 sittings to complete. If you want to get a complete relief, you must undergo all the sessions recommended to you.
