What is Spinal Decompression
The name of the non-surgical spinal decompression that we at the Athletic Room is the Back-on-Trac. The Back-on-Trac works by gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs by creating negative pressure in the disc. Spinal discs are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine and if injured can result in "bulge" or herniation of that disc.
The Back-on-Trac gently stretches your body taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine while with promoting the movement of water, oxygen, and other nutrient-rich fluids into the discs so they can naturally heal.
The Athletic Room offers various decompression therapies for your back (lumbar region), neck (cervical region), and Knee.
Please note that this therapy is not for everyone and for a Patient to qualify for this therapy they must have been Examined and Cleared for treatment by Dr. Escalante D.C.
Why Spinal Decompression
For some patients, anti-inflammatories, injections, and surgery has not alleviated their severe back pain. In fact, a study published by researchers Nikolai Bogduk and Gunnar Andersson in 2009 noted that back surgery only resulted in modest pain relief.
Your Spine acts as a portal for nerves that travel to other parts of your body. When issues arise in the form of deteriorating discs or poor alignment, nerves become pinched and irritated, causing severe pain and discomfort.
While you can feel better after one treatment, for best results, spinal decompression is designed to be a cumulative treatment that is part of a longer-term solution that addresses bulging or herniated discs that is causing pain and discomfort.
