Spinal Decompression Therapy:
This therapy has been found to be extremely effective for treating lower back pain, and as a reliable source of relief compared to surgeries like laminectomies and microdiscectomies. Spinal Decompression helps to fix injuries to the back, and create an environment for the discs in your spine to heal and promote good movements.
What Happens with Spinal Decompression:
In this dramatized example, imagine: your back acts and moves like a slinky. When you make the classic slinky shape by putting both ends on the ground, to look like an upside down letter ‘U’, this mimics how your spine acts when it is constantly in a hunched or over arched position. The direction the slinky is bent will force the rings very close to each other. The opposite happens at the other end, the spaces between the rings becomes very wide and far apart from one another. Your spine acts just like this, but, unlike a slinky, your spine has a liquid jelly-like disc that rests in between each of these rings. Whenever these jelly discs get squished from your spine bending, it can cause a lot of pain in the back and prevent proper blood flow to the discs. Otherwise known as a disc bulge, herniated disc, chronic back pain, etc.
Spinal decompression therapy works to bend the slinky, or your spine, back the other way to cause an influx of healing and bring nutrients and relief of painful pressure to your spinal discs. Spinal decompression therapy has significantly helped those who are experiencing:
Diagnosed Disc Herniation
