If you or a loved one currently suffer from long term lower back pain, and have not found success with other treatments, Spinal Decompression Therapy may provide the relief you’re looking for. While there are two forms of spinal decompression, surgical and non-surgical, at Preferred Injury Physicians we only perform the safer and gentler non-surgical form.
Spinal decompression therapy seeks to relieve back pain through motorized traction, which works by gently stretching the spine. Stretching the spine in this way will alter the position and forces of the spine, which can relieve pressure from the spinal discs (the squishy cushions which exist between your vertebrae).
As a result of these stretches, you may see retractions in bulging herniated discs, which can take pressure off of nerves and other parts of the spine. Not only can spinal decompression reduce disc herniation, it also helps to promote the free movement of oxygen, water, and other fluids into the discs to help aid in the healing process.
Physicians have utilized nonsurgical spinal decompression in an attempt to treat a multitude of ailments, including:
If you are suffering from any of these maladies and are looking for gentle relief without surgery or potentially harmful prescription medications, we recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our expert spinal decompression therapists, who can evaluate if you are a good candidate for this therapy, and walk you through the entire process.
