Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that may help relieve back pain. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the vertebra in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.
We have two options for the decompression table for lower back and neck that can help relief the discomfort. The decompression table gently stretches the spine and reliefs the pressure that is created in the spinal discs leading to pain relief.
One of the hurdles to effective decompression with manual techniques is the fact that the body naturally resists the stretch, known as muscle guarding. With a decompression table, sensors can detect when the patient’s muscles are guarding against the stretch and release the tension, ensuring that the maximum decompression is accomplished.
Who can benefit from using a spinal decompression table?
Spinal decompression therapy aims to help patients who suffer from debilitating pain due to bulging or herniated discs. It can also be used for the pain management and treatment of many causes of sciatica, injured or diseased spinal nerve roots, and worn spinal joints.
The ultimate goal of spinal decompression therapy is to relieve the patient’s chronic back and neck, pain, and to heal the source of said pain.
Spinal decompression therapy is a safe, affordable, and extremely effective alternative to spinal surgery.
