Per research, approximately 31 million Americans suffer from lower back pain at a given time. This usually arises from injuries, degenerative conditions or disc issues. Lumbar pain can make even the most routine tasks feel uncomfortable, including driving and sitting at a desk. Spinal Decompression, also known as traction, is an effective modality for treating lower back pain.
Decompression therapy can benefit people suffering from lower back pain related to a variety of issues. Medical studies show that up to 86% of ruptured disc patients experienced positive results after treatment with this modality. Moreover, it can help relieve low back pain related to several other common conditions, including:
The patient is first placed on a motorized table that moves back and forth to open up the joint space. This movement releases built-up spinal pressure, providing relief for pain and inflammation related to many common spinal conditions.
In most cases, the treatment is completely painless and lasts about 10 minutes. Many patients experience relief early on in treatment, though the best results occur after 8-12 sessions. Our healthcare providers sometimes recommend Physical Rehabilitation, Manual Therapy or additional Chiropractic modalities to help strengthen the surrounding structures as well.
