What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

 

 

Spinal decompression therapy is the use of a machine or treatment to relieve pressure on the spine caused by disc disorders such as degenerative disc disease , posterior facet syndrome, including herniated, bulging or protruding discs and sciatica. Spinal disc decompression can be accomplished by a variety of procedures, used to treat specific causes of spinal compression. Traditional open-back surgery methods have been used for decades, and are only about 60% effective but they come with many risks.

The Safest Method

 

 

The safest and most non-invasive form of spinal decompression is when therapy is performed by a qualified professional using a decompression machine which is specifically designed for the treatment of herniated or bulging discs. More room in the spinal canal is created by spinal disc decompression, as the spinal cord and nerves are relieved of the bone or tissue that was pressing on the nerve causing the pain. This therapy can relieve back or neck pain. This treatment, Spinal Decompression Therapy normally takes from 30 to 50 treatment sessions. Professional spinal decompression therapy is covered by most insurance policies under rehabilitation. Professional therapy results are always better than trying to do it yourself at home. Make sure you seek proper evaluation and examination for your back or neck pain. Contact Dr. McClellan today for more information. Call 256-442-1441.
