Everything You Need To Know About Spinal Decompression Treatments

February 11, 2016 in Back Pain

Living with frequent back pain can be a difficult situation to deal with. Whether your symptoms are a mild ache or serious discomfort, regular pain has a tendency to weigh on the mind. This can be a disruption to your work responsibilities, family time and personal life and may require a spinal decompression treatment. 

However, before you head to the doctor seeking a surgical procedure or prescription painkillers, you might want to consider the health benefits of spinal decompression back support. Never heard of this option before? Here is some basic information to keep in mind about this revolutionary and effective treatment avenue.

What is decompression therapy?

According to WebMD, this type of therapy is a non-surgical procedure that involves motorized traction to reduce chronic back pain. By gently stretching the spine, individuals can experience greater relief of pressure over time. A product like the Dr. Ho Decompression Belt can allow this process to be done in the comfort of your own home.

Decompression therapy has been used to treat a variety of conditions associated with back and spine pain. Common conditions that can benefit from this practice include sciatica, neck pain, worn spinal joints, injured nerves in the spine and degenerative disc disease.

How does decompression therapy work?

The American Spinal Decompression Association reports that spinal decompression therapy may reduce much of the strain and distractions that can occur in the spine, whether it's due to old age, injury or a number of other common factors. This process involves gradually extending the spine to separate the vertebrae, allowing a vacuum to form within the spinal disks.

This negative pressure created by the vacuum effect can often cause any bulging or herniated discs to retract. This takes some of the strain off of any nerve roots that may have been compressed by the spine. Over the course of repeated decompression therapy, water, oxygen and nutritious fluids outside of the discs can move into the spine to help any tears or damage heal.

Can decompression therapy be done at home?

While in the past, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy was primarily available by visiting a specialist, Dr. Ho has enabled individuals with back pain to practice this treatment option at home. Through the use of a Dr. Ho belt designed to relieve pressure in the lower back, people can take greater control over their physical symptoms without the need for invasive surgery or expensive prescription drugs.

    I AM 74 3/4 YEARS OLD. I AM TREATING A SPINAL INJURY near THE L-3,4 AND 5 spinal LOCATION BY TAKING HYDROCODONE / ACETAMINOPHEN (10-325mg) 4 - 6 hours daily FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS, ADMINISTERED BY LOCAL HOSPITAL PAIN CLINIC. THIS TREATMENT WORKS WELL, BUT I AM STILL CONCERNED ABOUT BEING ADDICTED TO THE CHEMICALS. QUESTION: IS DR HO'S DECOMPRESSION ELECTRONIC UNITS = GOOD, BAD OR INDIFFERENT IN SUCCESSFULLY SUBSTITUTING / REPLACING THE USE OF THIS COMPOUND MEDICATION IN MY SITUATION? I'VE ALREADY HAD A QUAD-BYPASS HEART SURGERY AND A STROKE A YEAR AGO, SO PROBABLY HAVE ? MONTHS TO A FEW MORE YEARS TO LIVE FORWARD. IS THIS ANYTHING TO WORRY ABOUT? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. ... D.BADER

      Hi Dimitri,

      Thanks for providing so much information. The more the better as I can provide you with accurate information. Decompression in general would be a great therapy for you to utilize but because you have had a bypass and a stroke I don't suggest that you use the belt. The reason being is that the belt has to fit nice and tight around your waist and for someone who has conditions such as yours it may be difficult for you to wear the belt that tight. However, if you do not have a pacemaker then I highly recommend that you try using the Pain Therapy Pro system which will help to provide relief in the areas that you need to treat. It's a very easy to use unit and comes with comprehensive instructions that will show you where to place the pads. You can click here for more information.
