Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy Shows up to 90% Success Rate in Clinical Trials

Spinal Decompression TherapyThe surgical side of spinal decompression generally leads to a spinal fusion since the first surgery involves having a portion of the posterior arch of the vertebrae and/or spinal ligaments removed. It’s like playing Jenga with your spine. Removing pieces can lead to spinal instability, thus the need for a fusion.

We at Ridge Farm Back Pain Center want to help you avoid surgery in any way we can, including non-surgical spinal decompression. Yes, you can decompress your spine without going under the knife.

Clinical Trials Show the Body Reacts Well to Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Studies like this 2003 one, this 2007 one, and this one demonstrated that chiropractic care can provide immediate pain relief, eliminate related symptoms, keep the pain gone, and help patients regain their active lives. Non-surgical spinal decompression so far has been able to help up to 90% of patients, numbers surgery doesn’t come close to matching.

Non-surgical spinal decompression has been shown to help both herniated and bulging discs. This 2019 study showed via MRI that this treatment successfully created more space between vertebrae, allowing discs to maneuver back into place. That extra space also allows your body to deliver more blood and nutrients to discs, helping them repair and revitalize.

Non-surgical spinal decompression has been reported to successfully treat other conditions as well, like spinal stenosis, other forms of disc damage, sciatica and facet syndrome. It can also be used as a followup to help you recover from spinal surgery. We screen all our patients to determine whether or not this treatment is a good match for your health needs.
