5 Benefits of Spinal Decompression for Back Pain

Written By Chiropractic USA on January 7, 2019

Many people think that back pain is a normal part of aging. In a way, this is true: years of poor posture, misuse, stress, and injury add up to put pressure on the spine. 

However, this doesn’t mean you have to live the rest of your days with an agonizing chronic ache. Spinal decompression (SD) provides a natural back pain treatment with benefits that drastically outweigh that of prescriptions and invasive surgeries. 

The Top 5 Reasons to Visit Us for Spinal Decompression

There are many reasons why chiropractic care and spinal decompression is a wonderful treatment. However, below are the top 5 reasons we recommend a visit for spinal decompression:

1. It Provides Non-Invasive Natural Pain Relief

Side effects from SD at your Santa Clara, CA chiropractor are minimal and might include some muscle spasms or minor pain – in very rare cases. 

Compare this to invasive decompression surgery which has a multitude of side effects such as blood clotting, bleeding, and nerve damage. In many cases, surgery doesn’t even work and you’re back to square one.

2. It Offers a Long-Term Solution for Back Pain Treatment and Overall Wellness

SD doesn’t chase symptoms or mask pain: it identifies and treats your back pain at its source. 

At Chiropractic USA, Dr. Fataneh Hooshdaran develops a personalized treatment plan for every patient including lifestyle improvements such as core strengthening and proper posture to avoid recurrence of your pain. 

3. Spinal Decompression is Gentle and Painless

During your SD back pain treatment, you’ll lie on a table with a harness strapped around your pelvis. Dr. Hooshdaran will adjust the table to gently relieve built up pressure between your vertebrae. Most patients find the treatment relaxing.

4. It’s More Affordable than Other Back Pain Treatment Options

In many cases, your insurance will cover at least a portion of your treatment. Even if you need to pay out of pocket, the cost of your spinal decompression treatment will likely be far less than surgery, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

5. It’s Always Safer than Prescriptions

Conventional medicine is slowly opening up to the idea of alternative pain relief treatments due to the devastating opioid epidemic. 

The American College of Physicians recently updated its guidelines which now recommend doctors exhaust all non-prescription pain relief options first like chiropractic care.
