Understanding Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that uses gentle traction in restoring the position of spinal discs and relieving nerve pain due to pressure on spinal structures. The position of spinal discs can be altered by injury or by health conditions.
Five Reasons To Consider Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy
Dr. Jay M. Shah considers various reasons when recommending spinal decompression therapy as your treatment option. Among the reasons include:
Spinal Decompression Therapy Helps Soothe Irritated And Inflamed Nerves
Osteoarthritis and herniated discs cause spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spinal canal. This can lead to the entrapment and irritation of spinal nerve roots, resulting in pain which is then transferred into your arms and legs.
Spinal decompression therapy helps restore the spinal cavity’s correct space to relieve pain and inflammation of the pinched nerves.
Spinal Decompression Therapy Relieves Pain Caused By Herniated Or Bulging Discs
The bones in your spine (vertebrae) are separated by spinal discs to help prevent friction. Spinal discs act as shock absorbers and each disc is made up of a tough exterior to help maintain shape and position within the spinal cord. The discs contain a gel-like material for lubrication.
The inner gel-like material may start to bulge outwards due to injury or old age. This exerts pressure on the surrounding nerves, which can be a bit painful. Spinal decompression therapy helps relax and stretch your spine to enable the bulging disc material to assume its initial position.
Spinal Decompression Therapy Restores Your Body’s Natural Healing Ability
Your spine has nerves and other structures that require a steady supply of nutrients to remain functional and healthy. Spinal decompression therapy helps restore normal positioning of spinal discs, enhancing the natural flow of blood and nutrients to create an ideal environment for healing.
Spinal Decompression Therapy Can Be Incorporated With Other Treatments
You require a broad treatment plan to obtain the best results when managing back pain. Your doctor will incorporate other treatment plans, including physical therapy, with spinal decompressions to increase your treatment’s success rate.
Spinal Decompression Therapy Is Painless And Safe
