How Spinal Decompression Therapy Helps Neck & Back Pain

Back and neck pain are the number one leading cause of disability in people under 45, and the third leading cause of disability in people over 45. Almost all of us will suffer from back or neck pain at some point in our lives.

 

Spinal Decompression Directly Affects The Neck & Back

Spinal traction will directly affect the structures of the neck and back. When looking at the anatomy of the spine, we can see that it is composed of a number of bones stacked on top of each other. These bones are separated and cushioned by a gel-like material called intravertebral discs.

Over time, repetitive movement of the spine or prolonged poor posture will often cause or accelerate degeneration of spinal joints or wear and tear of the intravertebral discs. The prolonged loading of the discs is a common cause of back and neck pain.

What Diagnosis Spinal Decompression Therapy Treats

Patients that get spinal decompression therapy are often diagnosed with conditions such as sciatica, disc bulging, herniated disc, or degenerative disc disease.

This mode of therapy is designed to be painless and effective. A patient will often lie face up or down when receiving spinal decompression therapy. Once everything is secured and strapped, the therapist will enter the specific parameters in a computer. Sessions typically 30 to 45 minutes based on the specific conditions diagnosed by our doctors.

If you suffer from back or neck pain, spinal decompression may be right for you.
