Back pain affects about 65 million Americans each year, and is also the 6th most costly condition in the United States. Back pain can stem from a variety of causes, such as injury, arthritis, sciatica, and more. If one continues to live with back pain, this can lead to additional pain and restricted movement, keeping them from doing the things that they love.
Despite the commonality of back pain throughout the United States, it is important to understand that there are many different treatment options that are available to help relieve your pain. These treatments are healthy, conservative, and effective. At Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas, we prioritize your wellbeing, and strive to provide you the pain relieving results that you have been searching for. We specialize in spinal decompression treatments to help alleviate your pain, while avoiding the drugs and invasive surgeries.
Causes of Back Pain
In most cases, back pain is usually caused as a result of a traumatic event or injury, or the natural aging process as components of the back such as the spinal discs and muscles begin to degenerate. Some of the most common causes of are:
- Disc Injuries
- Muscle/Ligament Injuries
- Sports Injuries
- Spinal Stenosis
- Auto Accident Injuries
Spinal Decompression Treatment
At Neuropathy and Pain Centers of Texas, we offer nonsurgical spinal decompression treatments to relieve the pressure on the spine. When a patient suffers from herniated or bulging discs, increased pressure is placed on the spinal nerves and results in pain that can stretch down the back and into the legs. There are several other treatment options available, but they are invasive and require recovery time. With spinal decompression treatments, there is little to no recovery time and also does not require pain medications. One of the benefits to spinal decompression treatment is that you can receive treatments, and continue to go about your daily life without painful recoveries or downtime.
How Does it Work?
Spinal decompression utilizes a mechanical traction system to gently and gradually stretch the spine. Throughout the procedure, you lay on one of our special tables while one of our professionals controls the device. A normal spinal decompression treatment session takes about 30 minutes, with periods of decompression and relaxation. The spinal decompression treatment acts like a vacuum. This increases blood circulation to the spine, and brings essential nutrients and oxygen to the area to enhance the healing process. The majority of patients who receive spinal decompression treatments report a painless treatment session. In fact, some of our patients have even fallen asleep during their treatment!
