There are many factors that can cause pressure and compression on the spinal column. It can be due to back injuries or extreme physical activities mixed with gravity that leads to the narrowing of the spinal channels and cause hernia or sciatica over time. This condition of compression of the channels is known as spinal stenosis and this health condition causes bulging of the discs, excruciating pain and other concerns.
Spinal decompression therapy treatment is useful in determining the exact problems that causes back pain and helps in addressing the real point of need. Compression of the spine leads to cutting of the blood flow and nutrients in between the vertebrae. This then causes damage and deterioration as well as the pain that a person experience in his back.
Relief with Spinal Decompression Therapy
Patients undergoing spinal decompression therapy are strapped to a table where a computer controls how pressure is applied according to the areas that need treatment. But while this process is not an immediate fix for your spine issues, this will open up your vertebrae to allow blood to flow and deliver nutrients to different parts of the body. A decompression table is usually helpful in relieving back pain and restoring blood flow as well as in opposing the need for surgery.
