What Software Is Utilized During This Treatment? Will I be Comfortable? Lower back discomfort affects roughly 7 out of 10 people at some point in their life. Back pain is in fact, one of the most common reasons for patients to seek treatment from their primary care physician.

At The Health First Group in Mississauga Millcreek, Mississauga Heartland,  Milton, or Etobicoke, we can provide machinery assistance for your back pain by doing spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is done with the help of advanced software technology on a dedicated traction table. It works on the same basic principles that chiropractors have used to adjust the spine and provide maximum comfort for effective pain relief. This therapy works by stretching your spinal column slowly, gradually, and softly to relieve unwanted pressure on the discs that sit between your vertebrae. It brings a negative pressure inside your discs, causing them to retract, using an extremely precise stretching motion. This creates a reverse vacuum, which aids in the retraction of projecting disc material. Increased blood flow to your spinal discs enhances the passage of nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen, which promote cell regeneration, tissue repair, and long-term healing.

Will I see progression? What benefits Are Presented? This decompression treatment is very beneficial as when treating back and neck pain, there is no need for more intrusive operations. When undergoing spinal decompression, no incisions, needles, or major manipulation of the spine are required. Due to its non-invasive nature, spinal decompression is safe for young, middle-aged, or older men and women. It also has quick results, with many reporting pain reduction after just one session. That’s a lot faster than any type of spinal surgery, and it doesn’t come with the recovery period that surgery does.

Are There Any Side Effects or Risks Involved? Much like any other surgery treatments, there are some minor side effects and risks involved with spinal decompression therapy. This operation may have you experience some muscle spasm. If this does occur, it is best to notify our specialized Doctors at The Health First Group right away. In this situation, utilizing cold or muscle stimulation to relieve the pain is the best alternative. During a session, you may also experience shooting pain down your arm or leg. You can always hit the stop button and notify our Doctors at any given moment. It is possible that you’ll need a 3D spinal decompression and realignment.
