Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive and pain free treatment modality used in Singapore that is effective in the treating of herniated and degenerating discs. These conditions can cause significant neck and lower back pain which can prevent a person from playing sport, cause physical and mental stress, and hinder mobility through everyday tasks.
During the treatment, the machine creates a unique and highly specific force that gently stretches the spine. This takes pressure away from the spine and decompresses the vertebra. When the spine is being stretched, nutrients, oxygen, and water is promoted and circulated to the damaged or injured disc, thus allowing the spine to heal naturally.
Patients undergoing the non-surgical spinal decompression therapy will generally experience stretching along the lumbar or neck area and most of them would find it quite comfortable and relaxing. Few patients may experience slight soreness after the treatment which is similar to how one might feel after an exercise regimen. Each session generally lasts 20-30 minutes. The number of treatments required for maximum results varies from person to person.
