Do you wake up with back pain and wonder how you will make it through the day. Are you wondering how do you know when you need back surgery? Is back surgery a good idea or are you looking for back surgery alternatives?

Back pain is a common ailment among many people, and unfortunately, even though many people do have back surgery, their pain does not go away!

Is spinal decompression painful?  No, spinal decompression is not painful. In fact, it will help relieve the chronic pain that you have been living with. You may be unable to think of little else except finding relief. Your chiropractor may recommend spine decompression treatment that will help heal your spine naturally.

How does Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression work?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that works by gently stretching the spine, changing the force and position of the spine. This change creates negative pressure in the disc, taking the pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking the pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This, in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

If you are one of the 80% of American’s who suffer from chronic low back pain, you might have tried everything possible to find pain relief. Are you wondering who does spinal decompression therapy? Have you considered asking your chiropractor about decompression therapy? Spine decompression therapy, performed by a trained and licensed chiropractor, can prevent the need for surgery in many cases. Your chiropractor will take a full medical history, ask about your pain, perform a full exam and take x-rays or an MRI. Afterward, if the chiropractor determines that surgery is necessary, they will refer you to the appropriate specialist and work with them to help you during your recovery.

Non-Surgical decompression involves a special table and traction machine which gently stretches out the spine, releasing the pressure on the nerves. This gentle form of traction creates negative pressure on the discs within the spine, which allows bulging discs enough room to return to their normal place.

Are you tired of waking up tired, stiff and sore? If you have been looking for low back pain treatments to treat the cause of your pain, a doctor of chiropractic can offer advice on how to get a good night’s sleep and help relieve your pain. The position in which you sleep makes a big difference in how you feel each morning, refreshed and ready for the day, or stiff, sore, and in pain.

Find the position that puts your spine in a neutral, or straight, alignment.  This puts the least amount of stress on your back and neck and helps prevent stiffness and pain when you wake up. Adding a few strategically placed pillows (under your neck, between your legs, under your knees) will help keep your spine neutral.
