Low Back or Neck Pain? Try Spinal Decompression Therapy

Back and neck pain are extremely unpleasant conditions that so many of us live with on a daily basis. They interfere with quality of life, stopping us from doing the things we want to do. Chronic pain limits our ability to be active and to pursue a healthy lifestyle. It drains our motivation and energy.

A lot of people suffer from neck or back pain because of previous injuries, poor posture, or even simply sitting in an office all day at work. However, most people have never heard of spinal decompression therapy – an effective low back and neck pain treatment option.

What is Spinal Decompression Therapy? Helping Hand

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical method of treatment that safely and effectively relieves pressure on pinched nerves and compressed discs of the spine. With a slow, gradual, and gentle pull, your spine will be painlessly stretched. This takes pressure off compressed nerves and discs. Each treatment lasts from 15-30 minutes (depending on your needs).

Relieving pressure from compressed nerves improves symptoms including tingling and numbness. 

Relieving pressure from compressed discs helps the disc return to its healthy, regular size and location, and improve nutrition to the disc.

Spinal decompression works over time to correct a long-standing problem in the body. A specialized health practitioner will create a spinal decompression therapy program specifically for you, making modifications as needed to maximize effectiveness.  At BodyMend, we see clients experience a significant reduction in pain after 20-25 treatments, on average. That said, many clients begin to notice a difference after only 5 or 6 treatments.

It’s a great pain reduction therapy on its own, or it can be used in conjunction with other therapies such as physiotherapy, chiropractic care, or massage therapy. A comprehensive approach is the most effective way to prevent further pain or loss of function.
