What Is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits. It involves stretching the spine using a motorized device or traction table with the goal of reducing pain in the back, legs, or neck.
How Does It Work?
Spinal decompression therapy is when the spine is stretched and relaxed, intermittently. It is said to pull herniated or bulging disc material back into the disc, as well as promote the passage of healing nutrients into the disc.
In a spinal decompression session, patients lie on a motorized table and wear a harness around their hips that attaches to the lower end of the table near their feet. The upper part of the table is fixed, while the lower part moves to provide the stretching and relaxation. You should not feel any pain before, during, or after the procedure.
If you have a herniated or bulging disc, have leg pain, back pain, or neck pain, spinal decompression therapy may be the best course of action for you. At Innate Medical Solutions, we are dedicated to providing you the best medical treatment for your needs. Call us today!
