Many patients find that Spinal Decompression Therapy provides both immediate and long-term relief. It is a noninvasive therapy that achieves results without surgery, injections, or medications. It is recommended to provide relief for herniated discs, degenerative discs, facet syndromes, sciatica, general neck and lower back pain, and even failed back surgery.
Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression (NSSD), also referred to as Spinal Decompression, is proven to treat back pain, neck pain, and sciatica caused by bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs or facet syndrome. Even post-surgical patients and those suffering from certain types of stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal) have reported significant pain relief from spinal decompression treatments.
Spinal Decompression, not to be confused with linear traction, slowly lengthens, and decompresses the spine, creating a negative pressure within the discs. This reversal of pressure creates an intradiscal vacuum effect that facilitates repositioning of bulging discs and pulling herniated disc material back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves. Spinal experts believe that nutrients, oxygen, and fluids are drawn into the disc to create a revitalized environment conducive to the healing process. Experts surmise that non-surgical spinal decompression enhances the body’s repair mechanism, providing the building blocks needed to mend injured and degenerated discs. Spinal decompression enables the body to get to work and heal itself. There truly is hope for lasting relief without drugs, injections, or surgery.
Typical Treatment Regimen
A spinal decompression treatment regimen consists of 20-24 sessions over 6-12 weeks depending on the recommended treatment program for one’s condition. Some conditions may require fewer visits and some require more. Patients find spinal decompression therapy to be comfortable and quite relaxing. Many patients report relief from their pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions, and most experience dramatic pain relief after completion of their prescribed spinal decompression program. Outcomes vary with each individual and are related to the severity of the underlying condition; however, a vast majority of patient’s report a marked improvement in their pain levels and an improved quality of life. As a session of spinal decompression progresses, the discs are relieved of pressure, creating a vacuum of negative pressure within the disc. Many experts believe this decompressed state aids in pulling nutrients, oxygen, and moisture back into the discs.
