Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression and Low-Level Laser Therapy: Effective and Non-invasive Treatments for Chronic Back Pain
Learn how spinal decompression therapy and low-level laser therapy can reduce pain and improve pain for patients with conditions like herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis.
Discover how these treatments work together to provide long-lasting relief and why they are a safe and affordable alternative to traditional treatments.
Nonsurgical spinal decompression and low-level laser therapy are two innovative and non-invasive treatments for chronic back pain.
Spinal decompression involves the use of a computer-controlled traction table to apply gentle, adjustable tension to the spine. The goal is to decompress the spinal discs, rehydrate the disc where possible, and reduce pressure on the spinal nerves. This can help to alleviate back pain, improve healing, and enhance mobility. Spinal decompression therapy with low-level laser is a safe and effective alternative to traditional spinal surgery and can be performed right here at Creek Stone Integrated Medical.
Low-level laser therapy, also known as cold laser therapy, is a non-invasive treatment that uses low-level light to penetrate deep into the tissues and promote healing. The laser energy is absorbed by the cells, which then triggers a cascade of biological reactions that help to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling while increasing the speed of healing. This treatment is effective for a variety of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, and arthritis.
One of the advantages of decompression combined with low-level laser therapy is that it is non-invasive and does not require the use of drugs or surgery. The procedure is quick, safe, and painless, with very few known side effects beyond some random soreness. It is also an affordable alternative to more traditional treatments, such as surgery, injections, and prescription drugs.
In terms of how these treatments work together, low-level laser therapy is often used in conjunction with spinal decompression therapy to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. Laser therapy can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling in the affected area, while spinal decompression therapy can help to relieve pressure on the spinal discs, rehydrate discs, and increase local blood flow.
It's important to note that not all patients are suitable for nonsurgical spinal decompression and low-level laser therapy. Patients with severe spinal conditions, such as spinal tumors or fractures, may require more invasive treatments. Additionally, pregnant patients or those with certain medical conditions may not be eligible for these treatments. A thorough medical evaluation is recommended before undergoing any spinal treatment.
