Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression or traction is a gentle or moderate force applied to the spine either by hand or by a mechanical unit to help people in pain. The procedure gently separates the bones or vertebrae of the spine to encourage healing and reduce painful spinal nerve irritations.
Applying targeted traction to the spine and increasing the space between your bones can have the following result:
- Reduced pressure within your spinal discs will relieve pain and encourage the nutrition of your discs.
- A protrusion or bulging disc may be reduced
- Tunnels where your nerves exit your spine become larger and allow the nerves to relax, achieving increased circulation, and allowing them to become decompressed or “unpinched.”
- Painful or arthritic joints are stretched and decompressed from the constant effects of poor posture acting on your body.
- Muscles, tendons, and ligaments become lengthened and stretched.
- Your blood circulation improves, which sends nutrition to your spine, flushing inflammatory chemicals and bringing oxygen and nutrition to the area.
Non-surgical spinal decompression can also potentially improve the following conditions:
- Neck and lower back pain
- Sciatica (plus, thigh and leg pain)
- Arthritis of the spine
- Degenerative disc disease
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a safe and natural therapy for either neck or back traction. For neck traction, you lie with your neck cradled on the traction decompression table. Low back decompression is set up using a harness around the torso and ribs and one around the hips. A bit of discomfort during traction is standard. Notify your practitioner of any severe pain, but mild discomfort during spinal decompression typically subsides when the spinal tractions are over.
Anyone with a spinal condition can potentially benefit from spinal decompression. How can you determine if you are the right candidate for spinal decompression? One of our licensed and qualified professionals will listen to your history, symptoms, and conduct an evaluation.
An overall program of treatment may include individualized exercise, hands-on therapy tailored to you, and various other modalities. Your back pain or neck pain may be best treated by spinal decompression in conjunction with other non-invasive treatments offered at our clinic in Columbus, Ohio.
