Chronic back pain is a common condition that affects millions of individuals in the United States. Whether you’re experiencing back pain in the lower, mid, or upper back, it can affect your general quality of life, preventing you from living and working at your optimal capacity. Many people turn to painkillers and opioids to handle back pain, which often leads to an even more debilitating addiction. Others are directed towards invasive surgical treatments. However, spinal decompression is a groundbreaking solution to chronic back pain that doesn’t involve drugs or surgeries.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure that involves using carefully-controlled motions to stretch and relax the muscles and bone structures of the spine. It’s an FDA-approved treatment that’s completely safe and comfortable with no side effects or complications. The treatment is comfortable, and most patients say it feels like a therapeutic stretch with significant pain relief.
Benefits of Spinal Decompression
Pain Relief: Spinal decompression releases neuro-signals that carry similar effects as painkillers, alleviating your pain and discomfort. The pain relief may occur in one to three therapy sessions.
Spinal Alignment: Pain, discomfort, and lack of mobility occur due to spinal misalignment, i.e. when one of the spinal discs moves out of place. Spinal decompression restores alignment and sets the slipped disc back in place, alleviating the inflammation, pain, and discomfort.
Nervous Health: When your spinal discs slip out of place or get herniated, they apply pressure on the nerves running through the spinal column, leading to painful sensations. Spinal decompression frees the nerves, allowing them to heal and reduces pain.
Natural Healing: Spinal decompression boosts your body’s natural healing response. Your body sends the natural growth factors into the injured and inflamed areas to heal the region, restoring optimal health and wellness.
No Drugs: Spinal decompression is far better than painkillers because it addresses the slipped or herniated disc, the root cause of the chronic pain. As such, it restores optimal health without drugs, and there’s no risk of addiction.
Non-Surgical: Spinal decompression is a completely non-surgical treatment — no anesthesia, incisions, surgeries, hospitalization, or downtime.
