What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical and non-chiropractic therapy to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries.
Bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, sciatica, and arm or leg pain can often be attributed to your discs being compressed by your spine. Poor posture and repetitive stress cause your vertebrae to compress your discs and even force them to slip out of alignment.
Compressed Discs Lead To Two Major Problems:
- A bulge or herniation pressing on a nerve
- Brittleness of the disc
Back pain is often made worse because the compressed disc restricts the flow of nutrients and makes it incredibly difficult to heal. Traditional corrective treatments include surgery or chiropractic adjustment. Our spinal decompression therapy in Logan is an alternative FDA approved treatment option and has shown very good results.
Spinal decompression treatment is non-invasive and uses a decompression table to provide gentle decompression of the disc. You are strapped to the table and as it moves, it applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc). It gently elongates the spine and helps pull the disc back into shape. Much like a repetitive stress injury, the decompression works in small increments. But over time, the disc reshapes itself. It heals and gets the proper flow of nutrients to fight off brittleness and future injury.
