If you find yourself suffering from chronic back pain, you may be looking into any relief that you can get. While there are a wide variety of different treatments available there are also a variety of different reasons that certain treatments may not work for you. If you are looking for a treatment that could very well assist with your chronic back pain, spinal decompression therapy is something available for you.

Spinal decompression therapy involves the gentle stretching of the spine to alleviate the force of compression upon the spine and to reorient the position of the spine. The spinal disks are a gel-like cushion that exists between the vertebrae. When they become compressed these disks can cause pain. The aim of spinal decompression therapy is to help these disks return to their original shape and ease the pressure that your nerves may have been under. This helps to alleviate the proper movement of water, oxygen, and other important necessary fluids that help to promote your spine’s healing.

Should you get Spinal Decompression Therapy?

If you are someone who experiences back pain and is looking for a nonsurgical solution that should help to alleviate some of your pain then you should look into treatment with spinal decompression. If you are experiencing mild to moderate back pain then you should consult your physician about spinal decompression therapy.

Our spinal decompression treatments are non-invasive and designed to provide you with quick relief. Using a special decompression table we slowly separate the vertebrae of your spine, creating a vacuum within the gel located in the discs between your vertebrae. We promote the healing of your spine by allowing for any lost gel, water, oxygen, or nutrients to be absorbed back into the spinal disc.

Who Shouldn’t Receive Decompression Therapy?

There are some patients that are not recommended to have spinal decompression therapy such as pregnant women, patients with broken vertebrae, patients with spinal fusion and patients with artificial disks or implants.

As decompression therapy involves the forced separation of the vertebrae in your spine, it is not recommended for anyone who’s natural spine is not in a situation that allows for this movement. Decompression works best when your spine is able to naturally expand and contract.  

Anyone who’s spine is altered or is not in a natural state should not pursue decompression treatment as there could be complications. As with any new treatment option, a physician should be consulted before treatment begins.
