If you have been experiencing back pain for some time, you may be lamenting the need to seek treatment. However, if you have not done so, you may want to ask a medical professional or chiropractor if Spinal Decompression is right for you. More and more people are starting to consider the benefits of Spinal Decompression, and here are a few for you to consider:
1. Alternative to Surgery
In summary, the process of Spinal Decompression involves lying on a special motorized table. A lab technician will then operate the table to gently stretch your spine at controlled intervals. This process has been shown to relieve stress from the spine and reduce pressure off of the disks between each vertebra. This conceptually simple and non-invasive procedure can in some cases relieve back pain without having to resort to much more intensive back surgery. Any surgery often comes with its own sets of drawbacks and side effects. Spinal Decompression might be a better fit.
2. Treatment for Bulging or Herniated Disks
As mentioned before, you have disks that are nestled between each of the vertebrae in your back. These prevent the bones in your spine from touching or chafing, and also assist with absorbing shock upon impact. When you have a back injury, or perhaps simply through wear and tear over time, these disks can rupture, or slip out of place. If these disks are misaligned, Spinal Decompression can help with healing and moving them back into place.
3. Can help with Degenerative Disk Disease
As we age, our capacity for physical activity naturally tends to go down, and our bodies tend to become less supple and flexible as a result. If the body slows down, the bones, nerves, and liquids that make up the spine can settle, compressing and hardening the whole network. This is why you see many older people often complain of a stiff back and even explains why we tend to “shrink” or lose height as we enter old age. This somewhat natural process is referred to as degenerative disk disease. Spinal Decompression, in a way, gives your spine a chance to breathe. By gently stretching it out, you provide the network in your back an opportunity to flow and clear out some of the cobwebs.
4. Reverses Poor Posture
Everyone knows staying active is key to good health, but many of us have desk jobs that require us to sit down for hours at a time. And as the work week goes on, poor posture is a tendency that affects millions. When we are hunched over a keyboard for maybe most of our day, this can place undue pressure on the disks in your back and will easily contribute to back pain and aches. There may be no avoiding the situation, especially if your day job depends on you sitting in a cubicle. But regular Spinal Decompression therapy can help counteract the rigors of chronic poor posture.
5. Improved Bodily Functions
When the back is stretched through Spinal Decompression, this can significantly improve the circulation of all the fluids that run through your spine. Nutrients and blood are able to move up to your head more efficiently, improving concentration and even the complexion of your skin. Improved circulation relieves pain and tension, leading to better sleep, which in turn increases energy and lets you live life more fully.
Millions of Americans experience chronic back pain every day. And for some, this may require an extensive road of treatment and management. But in increasingly more cases Spinal Decompression is proving to be a surprisingly effective alternate solution. Ask your doctor is Spinal Decompression is right for you.
