If you are suffering from chronic back pain, you may be interested in non-surgical spinal decompression. This treatment is available at Lions Chiropractic & Injury in Winter Park. It is a non-surgical, FDA-approved alternative to surgery. Spinal decompression is used to relieve back pain caused by herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and other health conditions. But how does it work? Let’s learn more about the science behind non-surgical spinal decompression.
on-surgical spinal decompression is a treatment that uses gentle force to separate the vertebrae in your spine. The separation creates negative pressure in the discs between the vertebrae, which draws the disc material back into the center of the disc. It helps relieve pressure on the nerves and improve blood flow to the discs.
There are a few different methods of performing non-surgical spinal decompression, but all of them use gentle force to separate the vertebrae. These methods include:
In spinal traction, the chiropractor places a harness around your chest and back and applies tension to the harness to stretch your spine. This method is generally used for people with herniated discs.
With the spinal decompression table, you lie on your stomach on a padded table. The table slowly moves you from an upright position to a horizontal position, separating the vertebrae and creating negative pressure in the discs. This method is generally used for people with degenerative disc disease.
Motorized spinal decompression uses a motorized device to slowly move you from an upright position to a horizontal position. This method is generally used for people with herniated discs.
