Over 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at one time or another in their lives. Unfortunately, as we age, our spinal discomfort tends to become progressively worse and can become chronic if left untreated. Some of the most common reasons for backaches are trauma or sports related injury, lifting heavy objects, improper spinal posture, poor sleeping posture, and ballistic movements.
The spine is made up of wedges of vertebral bone consisting of sacral, lumbar, thoracic and cervical vertebrae, as well as, vertebral discs, ligaments, tendons and muscles that attach to the spine. Over 30 nerves run down the entire spinal column. When our backs are injured the surrounding muscles often contract, as they try to protect the spine, but this causes, even more, discomfort to our bodies. Not only is the back affected with pain, but the arms, legs, and neck may experience excessive pain from the tension, too.
The elements of what’s causing all of the pain depend on your particular situation and biological makeup, but for the most part, it’s frequently associated with compressed nerves that are literally being crushed by the narrowing of the vertebrae. The damaged nerves send signals to the brain transmitting the indication of pain.
The typically recommended treatments for spinal compression are pain medication and surgery, but most patients are reluctant to have back procedures for fear of long-term spinal complications, and pain medications are very often an addictive habit not easily broken, once the pain is controlled, therefore most individuals are unenthusiastic about taking pain medication prescriptions.
There is a better way; a results-driven solution that doesn’t include any drugs or surgery shows favorable results in relieving back pain. For many years chiropractors and physical therapists, have been utilizing a natural therapy for back discomfort called spinal decompression.
What is Spinal Decompression?
While lying on a traction table, a patient will be moved by the traction device in tiny increments either side to side or back and forth, depending on their compression issues. This movement provides relaxation and relief by widening the vertebrae area and relieving the compressed nerves. And, as it substantially decompresses the disc(s) off of the nerve(s), it allows nutrients to flow into the vertebrae naturally again, which will supply the area with the proper amount of blood cells and oxygen to begin the bodies internal healing process.
The sessions take approximately 30 minutes each and most likely patients will need several treatments to the area get them to their ideal comfort zone, or to relieve the area completely. This treatment has provided relief for countless patients and is one of the best ways to start your recovery.
