Spinal issues could break you. The discomfort they cause significantly affects the quality of life of people, keeping them from carrying out their daily activities. Medication is the first thing people think of, but that cannot solve all the spine-related problems. Invasive surgical procedures cost more and sometimes risks attached to them, depending on the spinal disease. These issues with the spine normally manifest themselves through neck pain, debilitating back pain, joints or muscle pain or tingling or numbness in any of these areas.
Non-surgical Spinal Decompression is Here to Stay
But in spite of all this gloom there is a silver lining of good news. Non-surgical spinal decompression could function as an alternative for painful spinal surgery. It does not require the whole day and can be performed on an outpatient basis. While results vary for people, they are positive. It is also a relatively risk-free procedure.
How Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression therapy basically involves creating traction which circulates through the spine through relaxation and distraction phases while the right spinal positioning is maintained. The procedure separates the spinal disc for creating a vacuum within, due to the negative pressure applied. The vacuum helps pull back into the disc any protruded or herniated disc. Blood supply is then stimulated which causes the healing process to begin. There may arise a need for repeated sessions for getting the best results. Each session though lasts for only around 25 minutes and the procedure is performed with state-of-the-art spinal decompression machines.
Comprehensive Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Non-surgical spinal decompression is an FDA-approved procedure and is primarily aimed at treating disc injuries in the lower back and neck. It can also treat other conditions such as sciatica, disc protrusion, disc hernia, tingling, numbness, foramenal stenosis, spondylosis and radiculopathy. Spinal decompression can help reverse nerve impairment by reducing spinal load, and repairing damaged spinal discs.
This non-surgical procedure is offered at advanced healthcare, pain management and rehabilitation centers. So don’t worry too much with your spinal issues. With spinal decompression your condition can be treated without a cumbersome surgery.
