Spinal decompression therapy for back pain
Back pain, both acute and chronic, is a common medical condition with numerous causing factors that can become seriously debilitating, affecting day-to-day life for even the strongest of individuals. While this has been treated with diverse therapeutic options for years, existing many healthcare providers that prefer invasive treatments like surgery, the use of more conservative therapies is recommended.
Evidence has shown that if spinal structures are kept intact and the pain is managed through a multidisciplinary treatment plan, avoiding surgery, patients improve more, especially if the focus is to improve functionality.
Spinal decompression therapy enters into this category by providing not only a safe and effective therapeutic option for back pain, but also for the other associated conditions, some of which can be truly disabling.
We at 3R (Regenerative Repair & Relief) Regenerative Medicine Center are committed to providing preventative and regenerative care to patients suffering from back pain through spinal decompression therapy thanks to the experience of experts such as Dr. Jeffrey Pruski, famous Chiropractor of the Joint & Spine Center in Dr. Nash pain management.
Spinal decompression therapy is a type of motorized traction that acts as a gentle stretcher of the spine. This generates a negative intradiscal pressure capable of changing the force and position of the spine, taking pressure off of the spinal disks, the gel-like cushions located between vertebras.
By doing this decompression, bulging or herniated disks may retract, worn spinal joints are separated, and pinched nerves can be released, promoting the arrival of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to these structures so they can regenerate and heal.
A typical spinal decompression session involves the placement of one harness around the patient’s pelvis and another one around the trunk. These are connected to a computer, which is operated by the physician, who customizes the treatment plan according to the patient’s specific needs.
Lasting for about 20 minutes, each session can be repeated 3 times per week for one or more months, with most patients feeling better after just a few sessions. To achieve major results, this therapy is usually accompanied by other treatment methods, such as heat and cold application, ultrasound therapy, muscle stimulation, among others.
