Spinal Decompression for Back and Neck Pain

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Injury Rehab Center in Houston

Spinal disks are gel-like pads that serve as buffers between the bones in your spine. Back and neck pain are often caused when these spinal disks are degenerative, bulging, or herniated. Operating on these disks can be expensive and debilitating, and an invasive spinal operation has the potential to pose even greater risk to you. Depending on the details and severity of your spinal injury and the source of your neck or back pain, spinal decompression therapy could be a great alternative to surgery.

How Spinal Decompression Therapy Works

If you are suffering from back or neck pain as a result of an injury or a condition such as sciatica or posterior facet syndrome, spinal decompression therapy could be your ticket to relief. The most common method of nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy involves a motorized device that stretches the spine. This stretching is hoped to change the position of the spine and create negative intradiscal pressure, which theoretically brings spinal disks back into their proper position. This is done in order to relieve pressure on spinal disks, nerves, bones, and muscles around your spine. In many cases, this stimulates the circulation of important nutrients and fluids, like water and oxygen, into the disks, which helps spinal disks heal.

Who Is Eligible for Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is not for everyone. It may not be in your best interest to pursue this as a method of pain relief if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • Pregnant women
  • Patients with broken vertebra(e)
  • Spinal infusion patients
  • Spinal implant recipients
  • Patients who have undergone a failed back surgery or have had more than one surgery with no pain relief
  • Patients with conditions that jeopardize spinal integrity overall (i.e. osteoporosis, stenosis, infections, tumors, or other diseases infecting the spine)
