Spinal decompression treatment is a non-surgical therapy for severe lower back pain attributable to degenerative disc condition, herniated disc or any other deformities in the disc. Doctors also use this treatment for pain within the neck, legs or arms and will involve minimizing the weight to the spinal cord. Vertebral Axial Decompression or VAX-D is also another name given to this spinal therapy. In the past, major surgical treatments had been the only remedy for severe lower back pain. Nowadays, you can avoid surgical treatments with the help of this therapy. This short article will look at some of the benefits of spinal decompression treatment.

The FDA has cleared this therapy for lower back conditions. This treatment is used for treating problems such as pain within the buttocks, lower back and hip. This therapy is intended for individuals struggling with back pain caused by herniated disc for longer than one month. People who are struggling with persistent back pain despite undergoing a back operation, which is over 6 months old, could also benefit from this therapy.

Medical studies have endorsed decompression therapy because recent reports have shown that it is safer and far more effective than the surgery. Degenerative disc illness, sciatica, herniated discs, spondylosis, soft tissue spine stenosis, as well as facet arthropathy will develop from compression of the discs. This spinal therapy will provide the best treatment for such ailments.

A herniated or bulging disc may cause agonizing pain within the lower back region and this therapy will help to restore normal condition. The decompression will extend the bulging disc simply by adding traction, which is an activity that will help the disc to absorb the required nutrients to restore the disc. The specialist will accomplish this by creating an unfavorable pressure in the disc in order to eliminate the discomfort and pain.

The cost to get this therapy is no more than 10% of the price for the lumbar surgery, making it a cost-effective option. As a result, this is ideal if you want to benefit from a safer and more effective treatment for less cost and can also take less time for you to recover.
