Why Is Spinal Decompression Needed?

By Expert Author: McKim Chiropractic

If you are suffering from lower back pain that never goes away, this may be a question you are asking. Simply stated, spinal decompression is a non-surgical therapy that relieves back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries. Spinal decompression treatments are significantly less invasive than injections, spinal surgery and anesthesia.

Even though spinal decompression treatments are non-invasive, there are still risks involved. Thus, before a course of treatment is prescribed, it is important that a physical exam, MRI and X-rays be performed to determine the right course of treatment for you.

How Do Spinal Decompression Treatments Work?

Spinal decompression helps to decrease pressure in the discs, stimulating the blood supply, and thereby promoting healing naturally. Treatments work by relaxing the spine through specific positions. The spinal disc is put under "negative pressure," to pull the herniated disc material back inside through a vacuum effect. Treatment is often used for those who have back or neck pain because of damaged discs, including herniated disc, bulging discs, narrowing of the spinal column or stenosis of the spine, sciatica or radiculopathy.

Are There Patients Who Cannot Use Spinal Decompression?

* Those who have severe osteoporosis or degeneration of the spine;
* Those who have had spinal surgery with the implantation of screws, metal plates or similar hardware, unless the bone is fused together;
* Pregnant women--because of pressure on the abdomen.

What Then . . . ?

If you are one of the patients for whom spinal decompression treatment is not a viable option, you can rest assured that there are other methods that can provide results in addition to or as an alternative to invasive surgical options, such as chiropractic care, massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, medication, and injections.
