Outpatient pain management becomes necessary in such instances because the aches could start interfering with normal everyday activities and the quality of life. The process starts with proper evaluation and the creation of a detailed medical record. Once this initial step is completed, the actual therapy will begin.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy is an excellent option for individuals suffering from chronic back pain. It involves spinal stretching that is the basis of many medical practices like chiropractic therapy and osteopathic medicine.

Aging, injuries, chronic illnesses and medical procedures can all contribute to back and lower back pain. Spinal decompression will be suitable for all of these causes of ache and discomfort. The majority of patients who undergo spinal decompression report a reduction in the level of pain and discomfort after a couple of sessions.

The spinal decompression session itself is short and comfortable. Many people like to listen to music or simply relax while being treated. Each session will last between 30 and 40 minutes. The frequency of the sessions and the duration of the treatment itself will be determined by your physician on the basis of the condition being treated and the improvement achieved.
Pregnant women, individuals suffering from severe osteoporosis, those who have had abdominal surgeries within the last year, and individuals suffering from osteomyelitis, meningitis or severe peripheral neuropathy should refrain from having the treatment.

Talking to a medical professional that specializes in pain management and spinal decompression therapy will be the best way to figure out whether this kind of therapy is the right one for you. The evaluation of your individual symptoms will be the key to selecting a personalized treatment possibility.
