Lower-back pain is one of the most common ailments that people suffer from today. In fact, up to 80 percent of the population will suffer from some form of lower back pain in their lives. Pain can be caused by dozens of things including age, injury, poor posture, and sitting for long periods of time, among other causes. Dealing with lower back pain can make it difficult to perform normal daily activities so it’s important to get help as soon as possible.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression is an excellent non-surgical way to get relief from back pain. During a treatment, the patient is strapped to a specialized table that allows the bottom half to be moved away in small increments in order to relieve pressure on the spine. When pressure is alleviated, it allows bulging discs to return to their natural position, which helps them to receive more nutrients and promote the healing process.

Is Spinal Decompression Right For You?

Like all medical treatments, there are some people for whom spinal decompression is not recommended. However, for most people, it can be a safe and affordable method for reducing or even eliminating chronic back pain. Be sure to discuss your concerns with one of our Doctors of Chiropractic to determine if this therapy is right for you.
