Spinal Decompression: Effective Treatment for Chronic Back Pain

Spinal Decompression: Effective Treatment for Chronic Back Pain

Posted By Atlanta Pain & Rehab || 5-Oct-2015

If you suffer from persistent back pain, you are well aware of how disruptive it can be to your life. Chronic pain that interferes with your daily activities is not only frustrating, but it diminishes the quality of your life by keeping you from doing the things you enjoy. If you are struggling with back pain, spinal decompression may be right for you.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure that stretches the spine, changing its position and lessening pressure on the spinal discs. This is accomplished through the use of a specialized table with an attached harness. Traction provided by a motor gently pulls on the harness, allowing the spine to realign itself.

If you suffer from herniated or bulging discs, spinal decompression may help these discs retract back to a normal position. This, in turn, takes pressure off nerves, allowing movement of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids to enter discs and promote healing.

Spinal decompression can be used to treat any of the following conditions:

  • Posterior facet syndrome
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Injured spinal nerve roots
  • Neck or back pain
  • Sciatica
