24 Nov SPINAL DECOMPRESSION THERAPY IN OTTAWA
Most people experience pain in their neck or lower back at some point in their lives. Sometimes the pain can be localized to just the back area and sometimes it can radiate down in your shoulder, arms, and hands, or leg and foot accompanied by tingling or numbness in these areas. A thorough assessment by a qualified healthcare professional can determine the actual cause of your symptoms. The most common causes range from Disc bulges, herniation, degeneration of the discs, arthritis in the spinal joints, spinal stenosis to an injury or inflammation of the soft tissue structures of the back.
Many people are referred for surgery, but of course, that comes with its own set of complications.
We offer specialized Spinal Decompression Therapy(SDT) in Ottawa, that can help with most of these above-mentioned symptoms and conditions, not just on a temporary basis.
HOW IT WORKS:
Spinal decompression therapy increases the space in between the individual vertebrae and relieves pressure on the discs and nerves and other structures in the area. Decompression treatment for the spine drives nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen into the discs. It also helps in increasing the size of the foramina where the nerve exits the spine causing relief in nerve pains.
At the same time, it stretches and mobilizes the soft tissue structures and joints of the spinal column.
This article discusses some benefits of spinal decompression. Let’s get started!
Some benefits of Spinal Decompression therapy
• High Success rate
If you are nearing the point where you could require surgery due to a deteriorated disc, studies suggest that spinal Decompression in Ottawa can help you avoid surgery 75-85% of the time. The success rate for individuals with a herniation is substantially greater, at 85-95 percent.
• Non-painful and non-invasive
The goal of spinal decompression is to alleviate pain in a non-invasive manner. There is no downtime and no need for medicines. It provides a very slow, gentle, and gradual distraction on the spine giving you some time to relax while you are on the table!
• Long-term effects
SDT can have long-term effects. The effects of the treatment can last for many years after the last session. However, proper precautions, exercises, and fitness levels must be maintained post-treatments to ensure the effectiveness of the treatments remain for long times.
• Improved posture
Poor posture, which disrupts the natural alignment of the spine, is the source of pain. Many patients see a significant improvement in their overall posture when they follow exercise therapy and fitness levels in addition to SDT.
Treatments can take anywhere between 20-40min based on the nature of the problem, but one should take sessions regularly for good results.
What causes Spinal problems?
There is a long list of causes that trigger spinal pain. Some important ones are listed below:
- Poor posture
- Poorly set up workstations
- Repetitive bending or twisting movements of the spine
- Heavy lifting, pushing/pulling activities
- Slip and Falls
- Wear and tear of the spine
- Conditions or diseases of the spine
The non-surgical spinal process of decompression can help your pain relief and can restore natural body function. It’s usually done on a specialist lumbar decompression table and involves gently moving the spinal components back into place.
