Back Pain Relief Through Spinal Decompression 

Suffering from back pain every day can be debilitating. It keeps you from performing your daily tasks well, and even the basic movements such as sitting, standing, walking, and lifting your legs can be a struggle. This is because your spine is compromised, the very thing that provides support to most of your body.

But don’t worry! If you are looking for relief, Naperville Rehab & Medical Clinic can help you through Spinal Decompression. This therapy is designed to alleviate back pain and other chronic pain conditions associated with the spinal discs non-invasively. 

The spinal discs are gel-like cushions that sit between your vertebrae. Pain happens when these discs swell up, bulge, become herniated, or degenerate due to age, lifestyle, or injury. So whether your back pain comes from the physical demands of your work, athletic injuries, or chronic overuse resulting in arthritis, don’t wait for it to get worse!

In this blog post, we will discuss what you need to know about this safe, revolutionary procedure and walk you through the process of Spinal Decompression.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal Decompression at Naperville Rehab Clinic is nonsurgical and painless. The specialized treatment involves stretching the spine using a type of motorized traction that can help alleviate pain, especially from the back going down to the feet.

It works by gently repositioning and realigning your spine, effectively taking pressure off the spinal discs. This helps improve posture and flexibility, resulting in enhanced daily living. The best part is, there is no need for drugs and surgery! After a few minutes of Spinal Decompression, patients feel elongated and much more relaxed.

But though it sounds simple, this lower back treatment isn’t possible with regular stretching you can do at home. We use specialized techniques and tables to make sure you are safe and comfortable throughout the entire process.

This treatment also works great when used in conjunction with other therapies, such as therapeutic massages, acupuncture, diet recommendations, and exercise.

What is the process?

Spinal Decompression involves stretching the spine using traction table technologies with the goal of relieving pain and increasing functionality in the spine. It works by creating space and negative pressure in the discs, where healing nutrients and other reparative substances can flow in and get to work.

If you are interested in trying Spinal Decompression, here’s what will happen:
For lower back procedures, you remain fully clothed. Your healthcare provider will instruct you to lie on a motorized table, the lower half of which can move.
A harness will then be fastened to the bottom table around the feet and worn around the hips.
The upper section of the table is fixed, while the lower part, which is harnessed to the patient, glides back and forth to offer traction and relaxation. 

Custom exercise and stretching programs can also help the body heal after an injury. Although exercises may vary and change from patient to patient, the goal is always the same—which is to regain pre-injury levels in all aspects of physical fitness. Core muscle strengthening is also an important part of the treatment for chronic lower back pain.

Other conditions that Spinal Decompression can address

Aside from lasting and severe back pain, this treatment can also address other conditions like:
  • disc injuries
  • headaches
  • pinched nerve
  • radiating pain to the arms or legs
  • neck pain

In fact, it is known to be the solution for many types of spine problems, including the five most common causes of back and neck pain: 
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated disc
  • Traumatic injury
  • Degenerative disc disease
