Spinal Decompression: Freeing the Gaps Between Your Bones
At its most basic level, spinal decompression is exactly what it sounds like: the reversal of compression. By relieving pressure on the spinal discs, spinal decompression can treat back or neck pain, sciatica, bulging or slipped discs, and other spine-related conditions. Treatments can take several forms, but the most common involves a mechanized table that the doctor operates via computer. After patients are strapped into special harnesses, the table then gently separates vertebrae, creating a vacuum effect that not only reduces pain, but helps the offending discs begin to retract and recover. Over time, the process of relaxation and contraction floods the vertebrae with water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids.
Though the concept behind spinal decompression is fairly simple, the history surrounding its development is a little more complex. Its roots can be traced to any number of sources, from the rack reportedly used in medieval medicine to the pain-relieving zero gravity experienced by astronauts. However, credit for the modern procedure belongs to Dr. Allan Dyer, who in 1985 invented a pneumatic treatment table very similar to the mechanized ones used today.
Dundee Health and Wellness
Every offering at Dundee Health and Wellness has two things in common: they're natural and non-invasive. The team of doctors, aestheticians, massage therapists, naturotherapists, nutritionists, and acupuncturists eschew drugs and surgery in favor of services that accomplish similar results without the side effects. And they often work together, melding their specialties and integrating different treatment modalities to produce more notable results than they would working alone. Though services certainly don't have to be taken in tandem, the interplay between different treatments can provide more comprehensive relief from chronic pain and boosts circulation and body metabolism and stimulate nerve function.
