Do you have frequent or constant back pain? If so, you know how difficult it can make your life. Loss of flexibility, feeling discomfort all the time, reduced mobility-it can be maddening. If so, you may be a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy.

Spinal decompression involves the gentle stretching of the spine to relieve pressure on one or several pinched nerves. The force and position of the spine are changed, which takes pressure off of the spinal discs. Spinal discs are cushions between the bones in the spine. Over time, negative pressure caused by this therapy can cause the retraction of bulging or herniated discs. Pressure can then be removed from nerves and other spinal structures. As a result, this can promote the gradual movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the discs to create healing.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression has been used to treat back and neck pain, sciatica, weakness or a tingling sensation down the leg, as well as bulging or herniated discs, and worn spinal joints. The appeal of non-surgical spinal decompression is that, just like it sounds, it’s a non-surgical, non-invasive method of providing back pain treatment, and it’s conveniently located here in Hopkins.
