How Does Spinal Decompression Provide Back Pain Relief?

Bulging, degenerating and herniated discs can cause excruciating pain! Although having your chiropractor adjust your posture can take the pressure off, the damaged discs need rehabilitation too, or the relief won’t last. Camelback Medical Centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale provide spinal decompression treatment that promotes long-term disc injury healing—without surgery!

What is Spinal Decompression?

It’s a high-tech form of specifically-targeted traction therapy. The patient is secured to a comfortable, computer-programmed table with sections that gently stretch and release the affected parts of the spine and the damaged intervertebral discs.

Your chiropractor generally recommends several treatment sessions over the course of a few weeks for the best results. Spinal decompression can be part of a mix of treatments including chiropractic care, massage therapy and therapeutic exercise for a total healing solution.

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression

When the specific spinal sections are stretched during treatment, this causes “negative pressure” within the discs. This essentially sucks fresh circulation into depleted, damaged discs to help replenish and heal them. The influx of nutrients in the blood can restore a disc’s ability to cushion and protect the nerves that pass between them and the vertebrae in the spine. The end result? Lasting pain relief and long-term healing—without surgery.

By combining spinal decompression treatment with the posture- and balance-restoring effects of chiropractic care, our patients are able to improve their overall health on a long-term basis. We combine these therapies with massage therapy to help rehabilitate the body’s other supportive soft tissues like muscles, tendons and ligaments that may have suffered injury and strain as well. We also coach patients on specific rehabilitative exercises they can do to retrain and recondition their bodies for long-term healthy posture and ergonomics—and to protect the discs and back from further injury overall.

If you have struggled with severe back pain from bulging, herniated or degenerated discs, you owe it to yourself to talk with our chiropractor to find out if you’re a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy.

Just imagine: what goals would you accomplish if your disc injury was no longer an issue?
