Back aches are not fun, but back pain relief sure is amazing.
Back pains can deplete your energy, wear you down, limit your mobility, distract you, restrict daily activity, and even demotivate you. That said, living with chronic back pain does not have to be permanent. If you have tried everything you can think of, from injections and medications to soaking in a hot tub, and still struggle with back pain, then spinal decompression therapy may be your answer for back pain relief.
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive, cost-effective treatment shown to help relieve pain for many sufferers of chronic back pain, sciatica, neck pain, as well as lower and upper extremity pain.
What is the benefit of Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Unfortunately, as we age, moving around becomes more difficult. Why is that? Well, simply stated, as we advance in years, our spinal discs lose fluid, the very fluid that creates the cushion like feeling within our spine to bring comfortable, smooth, and pain-free motion. As the fluid exerts out, discs become thinner and the spine compresses. On top of that, add pressure from sitting, slumping, and gravity, and it’s no surprise our discs exert additional fluid, causing height loss and pain increase as we age. What’s the solution? Spinal Decompression Therapy. The treatment will decompress the discs, reduce pressure, restore disc function, and draw in oxygen and nutrients into the discs to stimulate healing and alieve pain, including severe nerve pain such as sciatica.
How does Spinal Decompression Therapy provide back pain relief?
Once you are approved for treatment, Dr. Mehr will fit one comfortable harness around your pelvis and a second around your trunk. Then you will lie on a computer-controlled, spinal decompression therapy table, where Dr. Mehr will electronically stretch and decompress your spinal structures, specifically the intervertebral discs, joints, and spinal muscles, the three structures producing the majority of your pain. Treatment sessions are known to be comfortable, relaxing, and most patients will feel immediate relief.
