    Spinal Decompression
Treatment - Is It Right for You?
Spinal decompression is a popular non-surgical
treatment for back pain. However, it’s
important to know if the treatment is right for
you as there are some contraindications
involved.

                       Spinal     decompression
                       treatment         is     a
                       revolutionary new way
                       to treat chronic back
                       pain caused by sciatica,
                       disc      hernia,     disc
                       protrusion, spondylosis,
                       radiculopathy, and other
                       issues.     The      FDA-
                       approved     non-surgical
                       treatment       is    also
                       suggested        as     an
alternative for people who have tried
conventional treatments but have not gotten
relief. However, if you are thinking of trying
the treatment, it’s important to know if it will
work     for   you    as    there    are    some
contraindications involved.

What is Non                  Surgical        Spinal
Decompression?

                      Spinal decompression is a
                      revolutionary      technology
                      used to treat disc injuries in
                      neck and lower back by
                      traction. The treatment is
                      performed using a spinal
                      decompression         machine
                      equipped with a special table.
                      The     treatment     involves
                      applying distraction forces to
                      the spine.

The multiple cycles of distraction and partial
relaxation create a vacuum effect by negative
pressure, allowing the herniated or protruded
disc to be pulled back, taking the pressure off
the pinched nerve. This stimulates the blood
supply and nutrition into the disc. Reducing the
pressure on the nerves leads to reduced neck
and back pain, and subsequently, complete
healing of the disc.
A typical session lasts 25 minutes. The number
of sessions required would depend on patient
needs and treatment goals.

Who Can                     Benefit     From             This
Treatment?

Spinal decompression therapy has been found
very effective for treating the following
conditions:
 •   Back or neck pain and pain, weakness, or
     tingling that extends down the leg
 •   Bulging or herniated disks or degenerative
     disk disease
 •   Worn spinal joints (called posterior facet
     syndrome)
 •   Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
     (called radiculopathy)
However, like many others treatment, non
surgical spinal decompression is not for
everyone. It is not recommended for pregnant
women, and people with fractures, tumors,
abdominal     aortic    aneurysm,    advanced
osteoporosis and metal implants in the spine.

Benefits
                            Many patients have reported
                            the   experience    to   be
                            enjoyable and report relief
                            from pain after the first
                            treatment    session.  The

advantages of spinal decompression treatment
are

  • No surgery
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No down time
  • Minimal    risks   associated with the
    procedure
  • Patients who undergo the treatments do
    not require medication

Treatment at a               Multi-specialty
Healthcare Center

To know if the treatment is right for you, find a
professional multi-specialty health care center
or pain management facility in your locality. A
reliable center would have proper patient
screening procedures in place. Your physician
would first examine you to determine the exact
cause of your pain and see if there are any
contraindications involved. You may be asked
several questions: whether you have any other
medical issues, how long you have had the
pain, whether your back or neck problem was
caused by an injury, how far your pain disrupts
your routine activities, and so on. An
established multi specialty facility usually
offers spinal decompression treatment in

conjunction with other therapies such as
myofascial release, electrical therapy, heat,
soft tissue massage, ice, stretches and
exercises, to ensure faster relief from pain and
quick return to normalcy.
