Back pain is a frequent issue that affects many patients of all ages. There are several 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 discomfort. Thankfully, there is a technique available that can help – spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment method for back issues that uses traction to extend the spine. This helps take the pressure off of your spinal discs and decreasess the discomfort. Spinal decompression therapy is usually done on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home after each session.
The method begins with you lying down on a table. The table will then slowly and gently stretch your spine. This stretching action generates negative pressure within your discs, which causes them to bulge and herniate less. The result; your pain is lighter.
Spinal decompression therapy sessions last about 30 minutes and are usually done 2-3 times weekly. A number of people start to notice results after about 8-12 weeks of treatment.
If you’re suffering from back pain and want a greater likelihood of healing, 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. Dalton a call today at (248) 977-7039 to schedule an appointment.
