Why Choose Spinal Decompression as Your Low Back Pain Treatment?

Written By Community Health & Wellness Center on November 7, 2018

If back pain is plaguing your life, you’ll know just how debilitating and disruptive it can be. From ongoing aches and pains to herniated discs and worn joints, you may wonder whether you’ll ever find relief from your symptoms. 

Thankfully, there is an answer – and a nonsurgical one at that.

Meet Cox Technic spinal decompression, a tried-and-tested low back pain treatment that’s been revered by health specialists for hundreds of years. 

What Is Cox Technic Spinal Decompression? 

The devices used in Cox Spinal Decompression aim to create the ideal healing environment within your spine, alleviating pressure and pain in the process. 

This involves the use of a table or motorized device, whereby the upper part remains in one position but the lower part moves back and forward. Your hips are located on this lower part and are held in place by a harness. Then, as the chiropractor moves this area it helps create the relaxation technique that’s key to achieving the results patients expect from spinal decompression. 

Is it painful?

Absolutely not! Patients only note the sensation that their spine is stretching but shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort. 

Does it last long?

Approximately 45 minutes per session. And you may need several of these sessions each week for up to six weeks, depending on your condition. 

Why Is Spinal Decompression a Go-To Low Back Pain Treatment? 

Cox Technic Spinal decompression is revered because of how it helps change the force and position of your spine by stretching it. This removes any pressure that’s being placed on your spinal discs and, in turn, reduces back pain

These spinal discs are located between each individual bone of your spine and are almost like gel cushions. Therefore, spinal decompression works on each disc by creating negative pressure within them, so when the discs retract, any pressure on your nerves or spine is alleviated. 

Just as importantly, this also works to encourage the movement of nutrients, water, and oxygen into the injured area, creating a prime healing environment that will help repair and regenerate. 

Is This the Right Treatment for You? 

The majority of people are great candidates for spinal decompression. However, it isn’t recommended if you have advanced osteoporosis, fractures, tumors, metal implants in your spine, or an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
