It seems as if everybody suffers from back pain from time to time. For many back pain sufferers, their condition is chronic. Ordinary tasks that sufferers take for granted at home or work on a daily basis become physically burdensome and distressing. Medications might treat the symptoms of back pain, but they do not treat the cause.
At Precision Health and Wellness in Middletown, Dr. Leitzke treats chronic back pain by treating the source and not just the symptoms. Best of all, chiropractic care does not rely on pain medication or invasive procedures like surgery to produce results. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is often a major component for treating a variety of conditions.
What is Non-Surgical Disc Decompression?
Modern non-surgical disc decompression therapy uses a computer-assisted mechanical device. This device gently provides controlled intervals of stretching and relaxing to increase the space between the vertebrae in the patient's back. When those spaces become narrowed due to an injury or the aging process, the spinal discs between the vertebrae can become displaced or damaged and interfere with the natural structure of the spine.
The displacement or damage can create pressure on the spinal nerves resulting in pain, muscle spasms, loss of strength, and limited range of motion. The intervals of stretching and relaxation involved during non-surgical disc decompression work to reduce and eliminate muscle spasms while restoring the patient’s range of motion and mobility.
Conditions Treated by Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression
Coupled with other therapies like massage and electronic muscle stimulation, non-surgical spinal decompression can help with the following conditions:
- Vertebral misalignments
- Bulging or herniated intervertebral discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Sciatic nerve pain
- Spinal stenosis
Non-surgical Spinal Decompression Is Effective
Considerable research has been conducted into the benefits of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. The consensus is that more than 90% of all patients who underwent the therapy experienced pain relief. Nearly all of our patients have experienced vast improvements after receiving non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.
