Most of us suffer from back pain as we grow old or when involved in an accident. Our chiropractors at Purple Cow Chiropractic- aka Disc Injury Specialists of California are located in Camarillo and Encino. They recommend spinal decompression to help your back pain go away.
Spinal decompression is a type of therapy that involves stretching the spine using a traction table to relieve back pain and leg pain.
How Spinal Decompression Works
Our patients are people seeking non-invasive treatments that do not involve surgery or taking of medication, especially opiates. The therapy involves gently stretching the spine; this relieves the pressure of the vertebrae. The reduced pressure causes the retraction and repositioning of the herniating and bulging disc material. The low-pressure region in the disc will stimulate the flow of water, oxygen, and nutrients to your disc, and it will, in turn, speed up the healing process. Our chiropractors advise on approximately 20 sessions for you to feel significant pain relief. Each session can take up to 30 minutes. The treatment is also curated based on your age, health level, and pain levels.
The traction table has two parts, and only the lower part of the table moves. The patient either faces up or down on the table. The patient is then harnessed around the hips, and the harness is joined to the lower side. The lower part is the one that slides back and forth to provide traction and relaxation to the spine. Sensors fitted to the table can identify the resistance areas and adjust the pull's intensity until your muscles relax. A safety switch is also provided if you feel too uncomfortable and want the procedure to stop.
