How and Why to Decompress Your Spine

October 16, 2014 1 min read

I hate back pain! I've had lower back pain off and on for about a decade, and it often interferes with my training. I've been to chiropractors for the pain, done Yoga (which was a huge help), and found ways to improve my lifestyle to deal with the pain. Then a friend told me about spinal decompression, a non-surgical treatment that has been given high marks for dealing with back pains.

Basically, spinal decompression therapy involves lying on an inversion table or hanging from a harness, with a harness around both your trunk and pelvis. The harnesses gently apply negative pressure on your spine, pulling the discs apart. This helps to take the pressure off the nerves and spine, promoting the healthy flow of water, nutrients, and oxygen around your spine and speeding up healing. According to WebMD, this is a treatment not just for back pain, but also for:
  • Sciatica pain
  • Herniated disks
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Radiculopathy
Thankfully, I've just got simple back pain! I've got an appointment scheduled in a couple of weeks, and we'll see if this treatment helps as much as it claims to.   Featured Image Source: hoctorfamilychiropractic.com Do you follow us on Instagram?
