Spinal decompression therapy is a non surgical treatment for chronic lower back pain caused by degenerative disc disease, herniated disc or other deformities of the disc. This treatment is also adopted for pain in the neck, arms or legs and involves reducing the load to the spine. This therapy has an FDA approved success rate of 85-90% for lower back and neck ailments!
Medical researches have supported decompression therapy as recent studies have proved it to be safer and more effective than spinal surgery. Spinal decompression therapy has become a major topic among chiropractic and physical therapists. Sciatica, spondylosis, degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, soft-tissue spinal stenosis, and facet arthropathy are caused by compression of discs. Spinal decompression therapy offers the best treatment for these conditions.
A bulging disc can be returned to the normal condition using spinal decompression. Spinal decompression lengthens the bulging disc by placing traction. This activity helps the disc absorb the nutrients required to heal the disc. Thus the pain and discomfort produced by the bulging disc is eliminated.
