We understand how debilitating sciatica and low back pain can be. The lack of movement due to persistent pain can have an adverse impact on multiple aspects of your life – it can prevent you from working, driving, sleeping and even routine things such as dressing and bathing. Some affected persons struggle to improve their condition with hands-on treatments. However, most invasive procedures such as surgery or spinal injections are not a mainstay treatment options with the associated risks, waiting times, and success rates.
Are you trapped in a cycle of general practitioners, pain clinic visits and physiotherapists, also being reliant on regular painkillers? You should consult a chiropractic care specialist for spinal decompression or IDD therapy program to reduce pain, prevent recurrent episodes and help you get back to your healthy routine – for the long term. Spinal decompression is a safe and effective program of regular treatments that address the underlying cause of your prolapse, bulging, herniated or ‘slipped’ discs, so that the pain doesn’t return.
What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a specific herniated disc treatment for persistent neck pain, back pain and associated nerve pain in the legs (sciatica). It is a safe and non-invasive treatment method that uses gentle forces to pull apart spinal segments where the intervertebral discs are damaged or bulging. It helps to remove the pressure and stress from any affected nerves.
By stretching the soft tissues and decompressing a damaged disc, spinal decompression therapy can reduce pain, increase mobility in the spine and stimulate the healing mechanisms of the body to operate more efficiently. Furthermore, it also alleviates any irritation or compression caused to surrounding nerves and helps to relieve pain due to muscle spasm.
Who is suitable for Spinal Decompression Therapy?
- Aged over 18
- Chronic neck or back pain (for more than three months)
- Persistent pain in the legs (sciatica)
- Spinal disc problems such as prolapsed, herniated, slipped and bulging disc
- Degenerative disc diseases
Why choose Spinal Decompression Therapy over other treatment options?
Spinal Decompression Therapy can be a safe and effective treatment option for many good reasons, including;
- You want to stop taking painkillers
- Your body is not responding to the current treatment
- You want to avoid surgery and injections
- You are looking for long-term pain relief for herniated or bulging discs
- You are seeking a natural pain-relieving treatment option
People with neck pain, back pain or sciatica for some time are typical candidates for spinal decompression therapy. Usually, such people have tried other traditional treatment options without success.
What conditions can Spinal Decompression Therapy help?
The intervertebral discs are pads of connective tissue that divide the bones of the spine. They act as shock absorbers to protect the spine while moving around. When these become damaged due to trauma or some other reason, they result in the rubbing of the vertebral bones and irritate surrounding nerves that lead to pain in the local area. Pain radiating to the legs (sciatica) or arms can also be a sign of a disc problem, indicating the leakage of the inner gel-like part (synovial fluid) of the disc onto surrounding nerves. Spinal decompression therapy is designed to address all types of spine conditions non-invasively, especially those caused by a prolapsed, bulging, herniated or degenerative disc disease.
