Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints among patients today. Since back pain can be caused by many different factors, from aging to a sedentary lifestyle and acute injuries, many people seek out relief from back pain at points throughout their lives.

Wasserman Chiropractic offers non-surgical decompression therapy as a treatment solution for patients suffering from lower back pain. This gentle, non-invasive, and effective therapy method can help you achieve lasting relief from lower back pain without having to undergo surgery.

An Alternative Treatment Option For Lower Back Pain

Lumbar decompression surgery is a known treatment option for pain in the lumbar spine (lower back). By surgically removing a section of the bone or disc, this procedure provides the nerve root additional space to heal. While surgical decompression can help some patients struggling with lumbar spine pain, it presents the same risks as any surgical procedure, including a lengthy recovery time and potential for complications.

Non-surgical decompression therapy from Wasserman Chiropractic can offer relief for lumbar spine pain without the implications of a surgical procedure. This provides patients with the ability to recover and return to their favorite activities faster.

How Does Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy Work?

In non-surgical decompression therapy, the spine is gently stretched using advanced chiropractic technology. You’ll be fitted into harnesses around your pelvis and torso, then lie down on a table. The decompression device will start to stretch your spine as your doctor controls the settings according to your needs. The procedure is safe, comfortable, and entirely pain-free.

Non-surgical decompression therapy works to relieve lumbar spine pain by realigning the spine and reducing the pressure on your spinal discs. With pressure taken off of the spinal discs, pressure will also be relieved from the nerves and surrounding spinal structures. To promote spinal recovery, this therapy method also improves the flow of oxygen, water, and nutrients to the lumbar spine.

For the best possible results, non-surgical decompression therapy may be used in conjunction with electrical stimulation therapy, ultrasound, or heat/cold therapy. These additional, non-invasive treatment methods can help speed up the recovery process and amplify the benefits of non-surgical decompression therapy.

What Conditions Can Decompression Therapy Help With?

Since non-surgical decompression therapy is highly effective in relieving pressure on the lumbar spine, without the risks associated with surgery, it’s a good treatment option for many different conditions. These include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging or protruding disc
  • Stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Facet syndrome
  • Disc degeneration
