In this modern era of medical science and technology, medical professionals have discovered different ways for spinal decompression without any surgery. All these spinal traction procedures aimed to aid in removing additional pressure on the inter-vertebral discs.
Now the question arises “what are inter-vertebral discs?” These are small structures similar to a cushion that are placed between your vertebrae. All these discs together provide strength and stability to your back by serving as shock absorbers. Herniation or bulging of these discs due to long periods of stress and other factors may lead to persistent back pain. Decompression or traction techniques are used to relieve pain in such painful conditions.
This condition happens when the delicate focal point of a spinal cord pushes through a break in the harder outside spinal muscles. Some bulging/herniated disc cause no indications. Others can bother adjacent nerves and result in torment, deadness, or shortcoming in an arm or leg. Not each disc disease needs intervention. Whenever required, treatment incorporates medicine, exercise based recuperation, and as an last resort surgery.
A spinal disc looks similar to a jam doughnut, with a gentler focus encased inside a harder outside. Once in a while called a slipped or a burst disk, a herniated disk happens when a portion of the gentler “jam” pushes out through a tear in the harder outside.
The spinal vertebral cord has quite recently enough space to house the spinal string and spinal liquid. At the point when a disk herniates and spills into the spinal trench, it can cause pressure of the nerves or spinal rope. Serious, crippling torment and modifications in sensation frequently happen. Moreover, the gel-like substance inside the plate discharges synthetic aggravations that add to nerve irritation and pain.
Popular Spinal Disc Decompression Treatment Methods
Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a kind of mechanical footing that may help ease back pressure and decrease the back pain. Spinal decompression works by delicately extending the spine. That progressions the drive and position of the spine. This change takes weight off the spinal plates, which are gel-like pads between the bones in your spine, by making negative weight in the circle. Thus, protruding or herniated plates may withdraw, taking weight off nerves and different structures in your spine. This thus, advances development of water, oxygen, and supplement rich liquids into the plates so they can mend. There are several procedures for spinal traction to treat back pain.
Manual Spinal Disc Decompression:
This traditional procedure of spinal traction is used by the physical therapist for relieving back pain. This treatment is done manually by exerting force on muscles and joints without the use of any extensive mechanical tools. However, this procedure is no longer used because of its low efficiency.
Mechanical Decompression Treatment for Bulging or Herniated Discs:
This procedure is an advanced way of spinal decompression in which a table is used for performing the process. The major disadvantage of this treatment is that the patients generally experience severe muscular spasms after the affected areas have been healed.
Detensor non surgical spinal disc decompression therapy:
In this very gentle spinal decompression procedure, optimally designed mats are used for treating back pain in both sitting and recumbent positions. This brings relief in back pain by decreasing muscle tension in the back, which lead to spinal traction. This procedure uses mats that are similar to foams possessing high elasticity properties and thus help in alleviating the pain. Some of the major benefits of Detensor system include the following:
