Back PainA major part of pain relief comes from understanding it and knowing its source(s). A great deal of back and leg pain comes from chemical effects on nerve roots due to inflammation. Spine decompression/traction therapy can reduce this pressure by causing a sort of vacuum effect in which nutrition is re-introduced into the disc nucleus.

Sufferers of isthmic or degenerative spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease with discogenic pain, sciatic symptoms, or facet syndrome should consider the potential benefits of traction by understanding their specific pain.

  • Spondylolisthesis: : Vertebral displacement which often narrows the spinal canal and causes pain that courses down the buttocks and legs. Sometimes spinal instability is associated and back pain can be present.
  • Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal column which can cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.Pain typically radiates in to the arms or legs.
  • DDD: The usual wear and tear of the discs in the spine. Discogenic pain is usually relieved when standing or walking and is worse with prolonged sitting.
  • Facet syndrome: Spinal osteoarthritis, common in those aged fifty and over, which affords sporadic pain typically in the most flexible areas of the cervical spine and lumbar spine.

Spine decompression can make a huge difference for all of these sources of pain. Consult with a spine specialist today.
