Individuals may develop problems with their back and spine that may radiate pain or numbness out to other body areas. This type of compression on the spinal structures can cause excruciating discomfort to the patient and stiffness that may limit their mobility.

This condition can be caused by traumatic injuries or health conditions that make the person prone to certain back, neck and related problems. Some factors that may influence development of spinal cord, back and neck issues include age, nutritional status, overall health, weight, heredity factors and more.

The good news is that there are very effective treatments for back/spine related conditions that include non-surgical spinal decompression therapy according to one prominent chiropractor from Denver Chiropractic, LLC, located in Denver, Colorado.

How Non-Medical Spinal Decompression Therapy Works

Spinal decompression therapy works to gently ease and stretch out kinked and stiff spinal related structures to relieve pain and related symptoms. This therapy works as light pressure exerted forces the pressure to change within the spinal structures which is a result of pressure being lifted from the vulnerable spinal disks.

What Are Spinal Disks? Why Do They Impact Spinal Pressure?

The human spine is made up of vertebrae that are called disks. The interior disk material acts as a cushion barrier much like gel cushions used in supportive therapies for back problems. If the gel or cushioned layer begins to wear down, the person will begin to notice back and neck pain and stiffness. The stiffness tends to be more intense after sitting or lying in one position for longer periods of time.

During spinal decompression therapy, the chiropractor will exert gentle and targeted pressure onto those disks forcing a negative pressure that will in turn lift up those disks relieving symptoms over time. Many patients report significant relief from pain and find they can move better also.

Why a Specialized Hill DT Table Is Called the New Smart Traction

Todays version of traditional traction therapy used to treat back problems is a far cry from the rather draconian traction devices used in past decades. Those older devices required awkward positioning of the patient into an upside-down position. Smart therapy is much more than that, and this therapy is more effective overall because of computerized technology used.

This innovative technology takes the guesswork out of measuring whether there are nearby muscles reverting to guarding of the target area. This reflexive action that muscle groups tend to engage in can undermine and reverse the good of what the traction is trying to do.
