Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment for certain types of chronic back or neck pain. Mechanical decompression is a slow, gentle precise and thorough stretching of the spine using a computer controlled decompression table to reduce the pressure in the compressed discs and vertebrae. Spinal decompression is one of the most impressive technological discovery in the medical world in recent years, as it provides good statistical results for long-term relief of pain caused by herniated disc, bulging disc, compressed discs, sciatica, facet syndrome and many other conditions related to chronic back and neck pain.
Conditions treated by non-surgical spinal decompression therapy
Herniated discs, without a doubt, the condition most commonly treated using spinal decompression therapy. Moreover, when the compressed spine is not properly treated, herniated discs can grow over time and thus put pressure on the spinal nerve roots or spinal cord, increasing pain and symptoms. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy reduces the pressure on the damaged discs so that the bulge of the disc decreases gradually until near its original size.
Degenerative disc disease such as osteoarthritis is also a commonly treated conditions by spinal decompression therapy. A decrease in the size of the disk thickness can be aggravated by compression of the spine, causing the vertebral bodies to come closer together. This can cause compression of the nerves and other forms of back pain. Spinal decompression eliminates the pressure that compresses degenerated discs thus reducing or eliminating painful symptoms.
Facet syndrome is also a condition successfully treated with spinal decompression. Compared to other back conditions, it shows less promising results for permanent pain relief. Conceptually, facet syndrome causes pain due to arthritic changes in the bone structure of the vertebrae. In addition, decompression therapy helps to create more space between the vertebrae, thereby reducing the painful symptoms.
Finally, all patients who suffer from chronic back pain or chronic neck pain can expect relief thanks to spinal decompression therapy. We are talking about patients who had tried everything up until now (massage, acupuncture, physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic) to no avail.
