Herniated discs are a result of pinched nerves and disc pain. These are the two main causes, and when material leaks out of the disc, it will irritate a nearby nerve and cause it to pinch. When the source of the spinal segment is unstable, disc pain will occur, and this can also happen if the source of the spinal segment is dehydrated or if it deteriorates.

Spinal decompression therapy is very effective for herniated discs because this treatment will gently stretch the spine through a traction table device. Traction will be applied to the spine, and this will relieve pressure while healing the herniated disc. There are a number of benefits to non-surgical spinal decompression, and these are significant when compared to other options. Not only is spinal decompression therapy safe, it is also non-invasive, and the procedure is brief, so you won’t have to dedicate a lot of your time if you decide to proceed with this treatment.

While there are a ton of benefits associated with spinal decompression therapy, the following are the top three:

This Therapy is Safe and Non-invasive

Unlike extensive surgeries, non-surgical spinal decompression is safe for patients of all ages, and it is non-invasive, so you will feel comfortable throughout the procedure. This therapy will relieve you of your pain, and many patients will feel better on the same day.

The Procedure is Very Quick

Generally, the procedure will take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, so the process is brief and will not take up an entire day. The length of the procedure will be based on the patient and the severity of their pain and injury, but the session will take less than an hour to complete. It’s possible for a patient to require multiple therapy treatments, but every visit will be quick, and your recovery time will be fast as well. This is especially true when compared to invasive surgery, which would require a longer recovery time.

It is a Natural Alternative

There are no pharmaceuticals involved in this procedure, so it is a natural option that is very safe. You will be fitted with a harness and will be placed on a computer-controlled table, which will be used to tailor each patient’s needs and injuries specifically. While you can consider surgery or a pharmaceutical approach, there is a natural alternative if you prefer, and that is non-surgical spinal decompression.
