Spinal Decompression for Herniated Discs
Studies show that herniated discs (bulged discs) account for about 30% of all lower back pain cases. While massages, heat packs, and stretching exercises may ease the pain for a short while, they don’t treat the condition. There’s a better way to treat herniated discs and the pain that comes with it – spinal decompression therapy.
The name may sound intimidating but this procedure doesn’t require any surgery. When done by a qualified chiropractor, this procedure corrects herniated discs and provides relief from all its symptoms.
How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy for Herniated Discs Work?
This non-surgical procedure involves stretching the spine with a specialized motorized device. This retracts the herniated disc, releasing pressure on the affected nerves and providing instant pain relief. Retraction of the discs promotes the transportation of healing agents like nutrient-rich fluids, oxygen, and water into the discs.
Besides being FDA-approved to treat spine-related issues, spinal decompression for herniated discs has a success rate of about 86%.
The procedure employs similar principles to spinal traction, which is a surgical method intended to relieve pressure on the spine. The only difference is that spinal decompression doesn’t require any invasive procedures.
Spinal decompression can also treat pinched nerves (radiculopathy), sciatica, spinal stenosis, worn-out spinal joints, as well as diseased spinal nerve roots.
