What is Spinal decompression therapy?


What Is Decompression Therapy?
Decompression Therapy, or otherwise known as spinal decompression therapy, is the non-surgical neck and lower back pain remedy. Generally, back pains are caused by degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, spinal stenosis or other disc deformities.

With spinal decompression therapy, the patient avoids surgery and only undergoes several therapy sessions. Most patients attest to instant back pain relief even after the first decompresion therapy session.

Common Back Pain Remedies
Almost everyone has experienced back pain at one time or another. It was said, that back pain comes in 2nd to headache as the most common neurological disorder in the U.S.

Because of its prevalence, people resorted to various back pain remedies. Some remedies are really effective, others just make their conditions much worse. Some of the most common remedies to alleviate back pain are:

Acupuncture - treatment is cheap but some people dread the idea of needles puncturing their skin.
Taking in vitamin D, B12 or magnesium - this remedy is more of preventive in nature. If the patient suffers severe lower back pain, this remedy may help in some ways but it will not completely remove the problematic back pain.
Yoga - this back pain remedy is excellent for those that are still flexible and have the time to attend regular sessions spanning at least 6 months. It is not for the sickly, weakly, elderly types.
Massage therapy - undergoing a massage therapy is very soothing and stress-releasing. But for severe back problems and under untrained therapists, it may aggravate the problem and it may worsen the condition.
Surgery - not everyone wants to go under the knife and it could also be very expensive and, at times, debilitating.
Spinal decompression therapy - a patient is firmly placed on a secured but padded spinal decompression table. The table then slowly adjusts the vertebrae causing the back pain problem. Immediate relief is often experienced by the patient. It is safe, effortless and painless way to remedy back pain problems.

Spinal Decompression Is Non-Surgical
Traditionally, people treat back disorders with oral medication, physical therapy, exercises and spinal surgery. With the latest development in technology and cutting-edge device, spinal decompression is the best option that allows you to say goodbye to your back pain and avoid the need for that debilitating surgery.

A spinal decompression table program provides a non-invasive treatment option for most chronic back pain problems and allows patients to become active & healthy individuals again.
