Relief from Recurring Neck and Low Back Pain with Spinal Decompression Therapy

Treating Recurring Neck and Low Back Pain with Spinal Decompression Therapy

Lasting and recurring neck, back, and sciatica pain can limit you in many different ways. Before it takes a toll on your daily routine you might be able to put an end to it. Some who suffer from back pain choose spinal decompression therapy.

Relief from lasting and recurring neck, back, and sciatica pain is one of the top benefits of spinal decompression. One of the main reasons I recommend this treatment to my patients is the ability to help patients recover faster and better from injured spinal nerves and herniated or degenerative discs in the neck or back.

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is used to reduce compression and irritation to nerves caused by disc and joint disorders. For many patients it offers a safe, pain-free, and non-surgical solution to chronic spinal conditions.

When you undergo a spinal decompression therapy for your neck, back, or sciatica pain, you will actually experience your spine being stretched so gently that most patients feel instant relief, even when the force and position of the spine changes. The computer controlled traction relieves neck, back, or sciatica pain by taking the pressure off the spinal discs by creating negative pressure in the disc. So those discs that are herniated or bulging may retract and in return promote movement of water, oxygen, and other nutrient-rich fluids that are essential when your discs are recovering.

Spinal Decompression Therapy is extremely effective, and I’ve been able to help many patients in the St. Joseph, MI area avoid risky procedures such as pain injections and surgery. If you are interested in seeing if this treatment could be the answer for your neck, back, or sciatica pain, call us today and schedule a consultation.

Thanks for watching!
