Spinal decompression is a form of traction decompression therapy that helps patients deal with pain in their neck, back, and limbs. The therapy has proven to be an effective way to reduce the pain associated with several spinal problems, such as facet joint syndromes, degenerative spinal discs, and disc herniation. The therapy involves the use of traction procedures to decompress facet joints and spinal discs to alleviate pain and provide comfort to patients.
Which medical problems does spinal decompression therapy treat?
Many modern health clinics are using spinal decompression therapy to help patients recover from chronic back injuries and the effects of physical trauma to the spinal cord and the areas surrounding it.
The therapy is most often employed for the treatment of:
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal discs suffering from hernia
- Post-surgical spinal pains
- Facet Syndrome
- Spinal stenosis
- And many other spinal problems that can cause an individual extreme discomfort
Modern spinal decompression therapy
In the past, traction based spinal treatments simply relied on the application of force to the areas of a patient’s spine that were suffering from physical trauma or medical problems. Inversion tables were mainly used for such kinds of treatments. While it is true that the patients did experience some improvement, therapists were unable to obtain sustainable results over a long-term period.
This has changed with the advent of modern technology. In addition to the conventional traction based techniques, modern spinal decompression therapists also use a variety of other modern methods to help them treat their patients.
Well Life Family Medicine has state-of-the-art decompression devices that enable our patients to overcome their spinal problem in a very short period. The decompression treatment we administer has long-term benefits and is also very affordable.
A typical spinal decompression therapy session does not usually last more than hour. However, in certain cases, the therapy may extend to over an hour if the problem experienced by the patient is a serious one. Most of our patients make substantial progress just after a few sessions.
