Back pain is a routine problem that affects many folks of all age groups. There are several different causes of back pain, but one of the most common is our spinal discs. As we get older, our spinal discs no longer have their flexibility and that results in pain. Luckily, there is an approach available that can help – spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment method for back problems that uses traction to stretch the spine. This helps take the pressure off of your spinal discs and lessenss the discomfort. Spinal decompression therapy is ordinarily done on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home after each session.
The technique begins with you lying down on a table. The table will then slowly and gently stretch your spine. This stretching action produces negative pressure within your discs, which causes them to bulge and herniate not as much. The result; your pain is lighter.
Spinal decompression therapy sessions last about 30 minutes and are ordinarily done 2-3 times per week. A lot of people begin to see results after about 8-12 weeks of therapy.
If you’re suffering from back pain and would like a higher chance of getting better, spinal decompression may be a good treatment option for you. This therapy uses traction to stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the discs, which can help reduce pain. Give Dr. Green a call today at (239) 495-1166 to schedule an appointment.
