Back pain is a routine issue that affects many folks of all age groups. There are a lot of different causes of back pain, but one of the most routine is our spinal discs. As we age, our spinal discs no longer have their flexibility and that can result in discomfort. Fortunately, there is a procedure available that can help – spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment method for back problems that uses traction to extend the spine. This helps take the pressure off of your spinal discs and lightenss the pain. Spinal decompression therapy is mostly done on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home after each session.
The method begins with you lying down on a table. The table will then slowly and gently stretch your spine. This stretching action generates negative pressure within your discs, which causes them to bulge and herniate not as much. The result; your pain is alleviated.
Spinal decompression therapy sessions last about 30 minutes and are typically done 2-3 times per week. A lot of men and women begin to see results after about 8-12 weeks of treatment.
If you’re suffering from back pain and are interested in a higher likelihood of getting better, spinal decompression may be a good treatment option for you. This therapy uses traction to stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the discs, which can help reduce pain. Give Dr. Russell a call today at (702) 990-2225 to schedule an appointment.
