How Does it Work?
The process of spinal decompression is not painful, and typically, patients feel relief almost immediately after the first session. Duplicated sessions are encouraged in order to see lasting relief for long-term pain. Usually, the doctor will suggest some supplemental therapies, like home exercise, physiotherapy, cold or heat therapies, or others. This helps to strengthen the muscles surrounding the affected area in order to help prevent future damage. This will help to alleviate the need for more invasive procedures and often will mitigate the need for medications or surgery.
