When to Try Spinal Decompression for Back Pain Relief
Not all back conditions respond to spinal decompression. The following aches tend to respond well to this treatment method:
Sciatica causes leg, buttocks, hip, and back pain, typically on one side of the body rather than both. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed, often by a spinal disc or back muscle that has slipped out of place and irritates the nerve. Spinal decompression treatments relieve sciatica pain by addressing many common causes of this condition.
Herniated, Slipped, or Bulging Disc
While a herniated, slipped or bulging disc causes no pain for some patients, many people feel significant pain. Spinal decompression creates a vacuum in the spine, so the disc that has slipped moves back into place from the vacuum pressure.
Degenerative Disc Disease
In degenerative disc disease, the discs in your spine start to degrade. Pain arises as a result. With spinal decompression, the worn-out discs receive the fluids they need to regain their healthy, gel-like texture.
In facet syndrome, the spinal joints break down due to wear and tear. Spinal decompression treatments move fresh oxygen and fluids into the spine to keep joints hydrated and decrease pain.
