Chronic pain has a debilitating effect on a patient’s life affecting their social, personal, and professional performance in many ways. Living with chronic pain is often excruciating and drives many people to seek extreme ways to alleviate their pain. That is why chronic pain management techniques are now used to efficiently relieve pain for those patients who suffer from long lasting pain. Here are some of the most common chronic pain management techniques: Spinal Decompression Therapy is a form of pain management that entails the use of decompression devices to gently stretch the spine in the affected areas. Spinal decompression has a good reputation as a pain management technique and treatment given its positive effects in restoring function and range of motion of the affected areas. This type of chronic pain management is used for patients suffering from degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, worn spinal joints, radiculopathy, sciatica, and other conditions that Continue reading →

Spinal decompression therapy is a non surgical procedure that involves the use of motorized traction devices to gently stretch targeted areas of the spine. Spinal decompression therapy uses a specialized computer-controlled table where the patient is laying face up fully clothed. Two harnesses are used to stabilize the patient on the table. Data specific to your condition is then introduced into the computer that triggers the gentle stretch of your spine where required. The principle behind spinal decompression therapy is very simple: the discs in your spine are made of soft and compressible tissue and are found between two vertebrae. During the stretching of your spine, there is a negative pressure created that allows any herniated disc material to be pulled back into the disc. In addition, the same pressure enhances the supply of water, nutrients, and oxygen into the discs promoting the healing process. Unlike simple traction, spinal decompression therapy isolates Continue reading →
