As anyone who has battled with back pain knows that it can be debilitating. Back pain often makes it difficult for you to do simple things like laugh, sleep, or enjoy time with friends and family. Thankfully, there is a treatment that is relatively simple that has been helping people deal with their back pain. This treatment is known as spinal decompression.
What Is Spinal Decompression?
There are a number of success stories of individuals who have been living with back pain for a long time and then after having this treatment done, are able to go back to living a pain-free life. Spinal decompression is a treatment that is designed to release pressure that has built up inside of the discs in your back over time. This pressure may be caused by things like injuries, bad posture, or trauma. Once the pressure is released, nutrients are allowed to freely return to your spinal discs.
Is Spinal Decompression Effective?
Many patients will start to experience the healing effects of the treatment after their very first session. Each session is going to last up to 45 minutes, depending on how severe the condition is. It is recommended that a person have this treatment between 15 and 30 times over the course of six weeks. During the treatment, a harness is used to gently stretch your spine. This opens the spaces in between your discs, allowing fluid and oxygen to freely flow. The pain relieving effects are almost immediate.
How It Works?
For up to 45 minutes, you are laying on a comfortable table. There is a harness on your hip and you are on a table that will move vertically as it stretches your spine. As you feel the pressure relieved between your vertebrae, you get a sense of tranquility and peace.
Many turn to spinal decompression as an alternative to spinal surgery. This is because spinal decompression is less expensive and has a quick recovery time. It allows for a complete recovery of your discs and a fast recovery that does not require you to rely on medication..
