Spinal Decompression Treatment Can Have A Long-Term Pain Relief
The most commonly occurring pain in most adults today is back pain. There are enumerate reasons for the cause of a back pain. Also, there are several treatments available that can alleviate back pain. But, most of them cannot guarantee a long term relief from pain and you would find that the pain is always returning before you feel you are completely relieved.
Spinal decompression treatment is one therapy that has been statistically proved to provide relief for a longer tenure than most other treatments.
Back Syndromes That Can Be Dealt With by Spinal Decompression Treatment: As already mentioned, several factors contribute to back pain. But, a few of them can be effectively treated with the the help of this therapy. Let us look at a few syndromes that can be treated.
Herniated Disc: One of the most common reasons for chronic back pain is a herniated disc. A herniated disc or an expanded disc usually expands or bulges out of its actual area and starts applying pressure on the adjacent nerves causing a lot of tension and irritation in them. Spinal decompression ensures that these discs are allowed to shrink back to a shape closer to the original one thus pushing these discs back into their actual place. Spinal decompression therapy would ease pressure of these discs by allowing them to fall back into their position.
Degenerated Discs: In the process of wear and tear, in the long run the discs tend to degenerate. The degeneration of discs minimizes the height and the room available between the vertebrae thus causing nerve compression, ultimately leading to pain. Spinal decompression can decrease the exacerbation caused by these discs by reducing the pressure on the spinal nerves.
Facet Joint Syndrome: Conceptually an arthritic condition, facet joint syndrome is also responsible for the degenerative changes in the bones of the vertebrae. Spinal decompression, to an extent can help increase the room between the vertebrae, in turn reducing the pain.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical and very effective way of treating back pains for long-term pain relief. Out of all the above mentioned syndromes, it’s only in the case of a facet joint syndrome that a long term pain relief cannot be guaranteed. Else, over the years this therapy has been proved to provide the best relief from back pains.
