Perhaps the best non-invasive treatment for back pain is spinal decompression. Our Hollywood chiropractor, Dr. Abramson of Back To Mind Chiropractic offers the low down on spinal decompression that gives real and lasting results
What is Spinal Decompression?
While spinal decompression provides the same results as spinal traction it is more effective and requires less time. With this procedure, your spine is gently stretched thus decreasing pressure of the disc. The repeated process of stretching and relaxing the spine alleviates pressure and promotes increased circulation. Improved circulation allows an increased blood flow that carries the necessary nutrients, oxygen, and water to the damaged disc.
One advantage of spinal decompression therapy is a treatment session generally takes less than half an hour. At times one treatment is all that is required but multiple treatments over a four to eight week period are needed if your injury is severe.
How Many Treatments are Required?
Although most people have relief from their back pain after their first treatment, a series of decompression treatments is generally recommended to ensure that lasting, internal healing takes place.
Does Spinal Decompression Always Replace Surgery?
Should you have extensive nerve damage, obesity, advanced osteoporosis, or are pregnant, spinal decompression is not for you. Otherwise, spinal decompression is safe for the majority of patients and is generally preferred to surgery.
Every case of back pain is unique and your specialist will help you determine what course of treatment is right for your condition – surgery vs spinal decompression. There is no reason to think surgery is the only option you have when it comes to severe back pain. Physicians are seeing more and more of their patients avoid surgery and resume their normal lifestyle quickly and with far less pain than ever before.
As with any physical condition, being proactive is always the best course of action. If you have chronic symptoms, the sooner you see a specialist the better. The less you delay, the less likely that surgery will be required.
