Benefits of Spinal Decompression in Vancouver

It is estimated that 7 out of 10 people experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. In fact, back pain is one of the most common reasons for patients to visit a primary care physician. If you are suffering from debilitating pain in your lower back or neck, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy may help. MacKenzie SDI in Vancouver has specialized in non-surgical spinal decompression therapy since 2005 and has performed over 70,000 treatments.

Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression helps relieve pain in the back by stretching the spine, taking pressure off of your spinal disks. This non-invasive treatment option uses a table and slowly elongate the spine. By creating negative pressure in the disk, herniated disks may retract or reposition to reduce even more pressure on the nerves in your spine. The goals of this therapy option is to relieve pain and promote optimal healing for herniated or bulging discs.

Therapy sessions typically last less than a half hour long, and most patients feel pain relief in as few as 8 treatments. It’s important for patients to stick with the therapy until your discs and spine have fully healed. Spinal decompression therapy is virtually painless. In fact, many patients even say that the procedure is relaxing, and sometimes fall asleep during treatment.
