What Is Spinal Decompression?
While there is a surgical form of spinal decompression, Caputo Chiropractic Center offers the non-surgical type, which is common in many chiropractic centers. This is a non-invasive treatment that can help with all sorts of pains and ailments.
Decompression uses a motorized traction machine that gently stretches your spine. The gentle stretches change the position of the spine, which takes pressure off your spinal discs. The negative pressure created by this “machine” reduces bulging in discs and helps reduce inflammation.
Spinal decompression is a common treatment for herniated disc, which is a typical injury as you age. If you do a good deal of heavy lifting, such as moving music equipment or furniture, you could experience this ailment as well. Treatment is important in order to relieve that pain and pressure.
Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Yes, it does. One study showed that 86% of those treated showed good or better results when treated for bulging discs using non-surgical spinal decompression. They also trialed it on patients with Facet arthrosis, and likewise yielded good results.
What to Expect When Undergoing Spinal Decompression
Whether you're in for back pain treatment or something else, you will undergo this treatment fully clothed. Your time in the procedure will depend on factors that include the extent of your injury and what areas you're having treatment done on.
Treatment is customized via a computer, after you are secured onto the traction machine. You may be lying face up or you could be face down, depending on what you're getting work done on.
