Back discomfort is a frequent issue that affects many patients of all age groups. There are many different causes of back pain, but one of the most frequent is our spinal discs. As we get older, our spinal discs lose their flexibility and that results in pain. Thankfully, 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 extend the spine. This helps take the pressure off of your spinal discs and easess the pain. Spinal decompression therapy is usually done on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home after each session.
The method starts 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. As a result; your pain is less.
Spinal decompression therapy sessions last about 30 minutes and are ordinarily done 2-3 times weekly. Several folks begin to feel results after about 8-12 weeks of treatment.
If you’re suffering from back pain and want a greater chance of getting relief, 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. Palmer a call today at (716) 668-2225 to schedule an appointment.
