Back pain is some of the worst discomfort to plague the human body. It makes it hard to walk, hard to sit, hard to lie down, and difficult to perform daily tasks. From the lower back down to the leg, people experience sharp spasms of pain and dull slow aches, and they can be caused by a number of reasons. A lot of our patients suffer from back pain, and we want to help you if you suffer from it too!
Some of the most common reasons we hear about are arthritis, physical traumas, overuse, and lifestyle problems. People don’t use good posture, they are in car accidents, sometimes they try to lift too much at the gym, and sometimes the bones in the back just get old. Whatever the reason is, back pain can bring even the most positive person down. Depending on the cause and the symptoms, each treatment plan must be tailored to suit the individual patient. Thus, we pair you up with an experienced physiotherapist to help you find the options that will give you the best results.
One of the most successful treatments has been spinal decompression therapy. A lot of pain can be the result of too much pressure on the spine, spinal cord, and back muscles. By relieving some of that pressure for a period of time, we allow the painful areas to release the stress, recuperate, and relieve pain.
Spinal decompression also works for spinal injuries! If you’ve had a car accident, sports injury, or even surgery on your spine, you could be a good candidate for spinal decompression therapy. The treatment is similar to traction, but we use organic movements and tools to help relieve the pressure so that you can incorporate other types of treatments as well.
