Every day, many people are told that they may need back surgery. Though a good number of these individuals are hesitant to go through with it. Increased risk and long recovery times are often the reasons why.
With non-surgical spinal decompression, patients are able to find relief without surgery.
Understanding Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
When the spine is compressed, the spine itself is more susceptible to degeneration – leading to pain and bigger issues.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is a non-invasive type of treatment that carefully stretches the spine. As a result, its position and force change, removing pressure from certain areas that have been causing the pain.
Once the spine is stretched, everything your spine needs to heal can make its way to the area, such as oxygen, water, and nutrients. Patients tend to find relief at this stage thanks to the release of pressure.
This non-surgical treatment has been found to treat certain conditions and ailments, such as:
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Damaged spinal roots and joints
How It Works
With the use of computer technology, the patient is fitted with two harnesses – one for the lower body and one for the upper. And, generally lying face down on a table, the doctor and the computer work together to begin stretching the spine.
The procedure is gentle and doesn’t cause pain. The only downside is that, although it shows great results, it does take quite a few treatments until you reach those results. The average session is a little less than an hour, but you may need to have 20 to 30 of these sessions to yield the results you are looking for.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Those who are candidates for non-surgical spinal decompression often find that there are quite a few benefits to choosing this alternative to surgery, which include:
- Results are fast and can even be felt after the first session – despite it taking several weeks for the completed treatment.
- Where recovery time is concerned, the entire treatment of the non-surgical alternative is faster than more invasive methods
- There is no anesthesia involved and no risk of infection or allergies
- No medications are involved, either – including no highly addictive painkillers
- All-natural pain relief by reducing the pressure on the spine means treatment and relief without the use of any substances
Is non-surgical spinal decompression safe? It sure is – which is just one more benefit of the treatment.
Many patients find long-lasting relief from their spinal woes once undergoing this decompression. It may not be a permanent fix, but it does provide relief without surgery which makes it worth trying.
Being able to walk and move freely without the pain in joints or the pinch of a nerve is a great feeling. And non-surgical spinal decompression can help make it a reality.
