Decompression therapy, offered at Bell Chiropractic & Wellness, is a non-invasive, safe, and highly effective treatment method aimed at relieving pressure on the spine. This innovative therapy utilizes a traction table or a similar motorized device to gently stretch the spine, promoting the restoration of its natural shape. By doing so, decompression therapy helps to alleviate pain and discomfort associated with various conditions such as disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and certain types of sciatica.
During the procedure, the patient lies comfortably on the traction table while the device slowly and precisely applies traction to the spine. This gentle stretching action creates a negative pressure within the affected discs, allowing them to retract and alleviate pressure on the nerves. By reducing pressure and promoting proper alignment, decompression therapy not only provides immediate relief but also stimulates the body's natural healing mechanisms.
One of the significant advantages of decompression therapy is its ability to improve mobility and range of motion. As the spine regains its natural shape and the pressure on the nerves is relieved, patients often experience increased flexibility and a greater ability to engage in daily activities without pain or discomfort.
With its non-invasive nature and proven effectiveness, decompression therapy has become a popular choice for individuals seeking a drug-free and surgery-free solution to their spinal conditions. Whether you are suffering from chronic back pain, sciatica, or other related issues, decompression therapy offers a safe and efficient path towards relief and improved overall spinal health.
