Spinal Decompression Therapy is a technique used for releasing a person from back, neck and leg pain. It is done with the help of a traction table or a motorized device. It helps in stretching the spine and releasing the tension created on the spine. Spinal Decompression Therapy is also known as the non-surgical decompression therapy as it does not involve any surgery. Other processes to get rid of this condition are microdiscectomy and laminectomy. Both of these processes are surgical techniques and a risk factor lies with them whereas in Spinal Decompression Therapy there are no risk factors.
In the Spinal Decompression Therapy process, the devices used have the similar benefits as of the spinal traction. Techniques are as helpful as the methods of chiropractors and osteopaths. The goal of traction and decompression therapy is to release the pain in the back, neck and legs. It effectively cures bulging, herniated discs and degeneration of the spine. There are some other effective benefits of Spinal Decompression Therapy and those are, it creates a negative pressure on the intra-discs which helps in promoting repositioning of the bulging or the herniated disc. It also creates a minimal amount of pressure on the disc which helps in the inflow of healing substances and nutrients in it.
What is the process of Spinal Decompression Therapy?
The Spinal Decompression Therapy is a natural and healthy technique to release back, neck and leg tension. It is a non-surgical procedure. The patient going through the process has to:
• Lie down with their clothes on a motorized table, of which the lower part is movable.
• Around their hips a harness is placed which is attached to the lower part of the table.
• While the upper part is fixed, the lower part is movable and slides back and forth. This helps in providing relaxation and traction.
• Devices used in this technique lets the patient lie down in prone position as well as supine position which means face down and face up respectively.
• The patients don’t feel any pain during and after this procedure even though their spine is stretched. If they feel any pain then it is not the right technique.
Even though the Spinal Decompression Therapy hasn’t proved to be completely effective, but it is widely accepted and practiced by many therapists and institutions across the world. Batson ChiroHealth Group provides Spinal Decompression Therapy. In some cases, there are some risks regarding this technique. A series of researches and studies suggest that Spinal Decompression Therapy is very much efficacious in terms of curing the back pain, neck pain and leg pain. There is a conflict in-between the potentiality and non-potentiality of the therapy. Clinical test reviews shows that Spinal Decompression Therapy lacks effectiveness in some areas. There is no doubt that this therapy helps in adjusting the herniated disc back into its initial position. It also enhances the supply of healing nutrients to the parts of the body where it couldn’t reach due to herniated or degenerated disc position.
