Do you regularly experience back pain? Have you been diagnosed with a type of pain that may require surgery? Spinal decompression is a safe way to decrease the pressure on the spine, thereby increasing circulation and reducing pain. Read on to find out if this may be the right option to treat your back pain. What is Spinal Decompression Therapy? Spinal decompression therapy is a commonly-used, non-invasive type of back pain treatment. It is an advanced form of therapy that, when used in combination with other types of treatment, has proven to be safe and effective for many individuals. The process of decompression involves a gentle stretching of the spine, which changes the position of the vertebra, removes pressure on discs, and reduces pain and pressure in the affected area. As the pressure is removed, there’s more room for blood and oxygen to flow to the area, helping it to Continue reading →

Many Canadians suffer from lasting back pain and the related symptoms. Spinal decompression therapy is one of the many treatment options available for you if you suffer from back pain. It is used to treat a variety of different causes of back pain, including bulging disks, posterior facet syndrome, and injured spinal root joints. How it Works Spinal decompression therapy works by using traction to stretch the spine. By taking the pressure off injured areas, this forces the position of the spine to change. With this shift in position: water, oxygen, and other vital nutrients are better able to access the injured area. Effective healing requires all these components, and in many cases the body isn’t able to access these nutrients without help. The pressure reduction that spinal decompression creates also significantly decreases pain almost immediately. Technology Used The technology used in current treatment plans has evolved since spinal decompression Continue reading →

Spinal stenosis is a condition that can put pressure on your spinal cord and the nerves of your spine. Usually, it will occur in the neck or the low back. When you have spinal stenosis, you may feel pain, numbness, weakness in your muscles and even impaired bladder control. While it is often caused by the wear and tear we put on our bodies over time, it can be treated, and some exercises can help alleviate the pain. Exercises for Spinal Stenosis From aerobic exercise to stretching, there are a number of things you can do to help with your spinal stenosis. 1. Walking: Walking is a perfect, low-impact exercise for this condition. You can vary the pace as needed, making it more or less strenuous. Adding a daily walk is a great idea. 2. Swimming: Another ideal exercise is swimming because it strengthens all the muscle groups in your Continue reading →

It is estimated that approximately 80 percent of Canadians will suffer from some type of back pain during their lifetime. In fact, back pain is the leading cause of disability throughout the world. Fortunately, most cases of back pain are not permanently disabling and many can be treated with an innovative method called Spinal Decompression Therapy. This technologically advanced therapy is often combined with additional types of treatment and is extremely beneficial for individuals who suffer from a variety of issues.

Do you experience abnormal aches in the various parts of the body? Is it easier said than done for you to maintain good posture? Is your normal series of activity restricted in any way? If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, it might all point towards a buried health-related problem – the misalignment of the spine. What is Spinal Misalignment? Regular wrong posture can cause spinal misalignment. This is when your spinal column gets used to the new normal, thus losing its original shape in the process. This in turn may cause strain and subsequent harm to the spinal cord. If your spine becomes damaged, it will lead to aches, limited activity and other similar problems. Back pain is an extremely common complaint. Research shows that 4 out of 5 adults in the US complain of low back pain at least once in their life-time. It is an 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 →
