Back pain is a frequent problem that affects many individuals of all age groups. There are many different causes of back pain, but one of the most regular is our spinal discs. As we age, our spinal discs no longer have their flexibility and that results in discomfort. Luckily, there is a method available that can help – spinal decompression therapy.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment method for back issues that uses traction to extend the spine. This helps take the pressure off of your spinal discs and decreasess the discomfort. Spinal decompression therapy is generally done on an outpatient basis, which means you can go home after each session.
The treatment begins with you lying down on a table. The table will then slowly and gently stretch your spine. This stretching action produces negative pressure within your discs, which causes them to bulge and herniate less. The result; your pain is decreased.
Spinal decompression therapy sessions last about 30 minutes and are typically done 2-3 times weekly. Most men and women begin to feel results after about 8-12 weeks of treatment.
If you’re suffering from back pain and are interested in a greater likelihood of getting relief, spinal decompression may be a good treatment option for you. This therapy uses traction to stretch the spine and relieve pressure on the discs, which can help reduce pain. Give Dr. Scharf a call today at (954) 227-0088 to schedule an appointment.
