Are you a candidate for spinal decompression therapy? If you are suffering from low back pain, you may be asking the question, “How does spinal decompression work?”

Generally, chiropractors maintain a unique focus on spinal manipulation to treat disorders of the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. However, your chiropractor may recommend a step beyond the spinal adjustment with other therapies, such as massage, ultrasound, or electrical stimulus. Have you considered spinal decompression therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain. Spinal decompression devices use the same basic principle of spinal traction that has been offered by chiropractors, osteopaths, and other health professionals for many years. Both traction and decompression therapy are applied for the goals of relieving pain and promoting an optimal healing environment for bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs.

Back Chiropractor Discusses Back Pain and Posture

Low back pain is one of the most common ailments that chiropractors treat. That’s probably because MOST of us will suffer from low back pain that requires outside help at some point in our lives! Posture has long been studied as a potential cause of low back pain.

A December 2014 study looked at posture in two groups of lower back pain patients and its relationship with problems associated with intervertebral disk diseases. The low back area has an arched or inward curve called the “lumbar lordosis” (or, the “swayback” area), and is variable in terms of the angle or amount of arch, and normally differs between males and females. This arch can be attributed to the cause of low back pain in some people.
