Spinal decompression is a non-surgical therapy that is accessible to those who live in the Clearwater area. This non-invasive process saves patients time, money, and pain.
Conditions That Benefit from Spinal Decompression
Some of the painful conditions that may be helped with this therapy are:
- Bulging discs
- Herniated discs
- Neck pain
- Back pain
Not only is spinal decompression effective, but it also has minimal discomfort. Patients report a high success rate in pain reduction, and not only that, treatments last 30-45 minutes, and positive results are typically achieved within than 20 sessions. Additionally, spinal decompression has long-lasting effects.
Alternatives to Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Between the time back, neck, or leg pain is reported to a Clearwater doctor, and the last resort of surgery, there may be a myriad of methods used to try to bring relief. Some of these include:
- Medications such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), which reduce inflammation and provide relief from pain and stiffness. The effects of these medications wear off within hours.
- Similarly, steroidal injections have the same goal as non-steroidal oral medications. The effects of steroidal injections may wear off after a few months.
- Physical therapy
- Exercise or limited movement
Surgery, of course, is a last remedy. It is risky, expensive, and requires a long period of immobility and rehabilitative therapy. All the above treatments for spine-related pain have their time and place for consideration and appropriateness.
Why Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression performed in Clearwater works by mechanically gently pulling and releasing the spine. Gentle separation of the vertebrae of the spine allows bulging or herniated discs to fall back into their proper position. Nerves that may have been compressed between disc and vertebra are freed or no longer “pinched.”
Blood, oxygen, and nutrients are free to flow into and around the discs providing what the body needs for it to naturally do the healing work it was designed to do. Further good news is that there are no side effects.
