Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is the new kid on the block in terms of treating chronic back pain. But how does it stack up against other treatments?
First the Pro, in favor of/in support of:
The very first po int in support of non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is going to be that it is non-invasive.
The 2nd supporting point shall be that it can be done on an outpatient basis.
A 3rd favorable point is it works! It is highly effective in the treatment of sp inal disc compression.
A fourth big benefit is most patients experience some relief after just a couple of sessions.
Lastly, the 5th reason for support will be that it treats the underlying causes of back pain, unlike narcotic pain medications.
And conversely, for balance, the Con side, against:
The primary point against spinal decompression therapy is that it is new and has not been used on as many patients as spinal decompression surgery.
The 2nd point in contra is that it may not be appropriate for all types of back injuries. Check with your doctor to find out if it is a good fit for you.
The third point in contra will be that unlike surgery, it involves an ongoing commitment to stick with the treatment.
4th point in contra will be the change happens gradually. It can take up to a year to be fully restored.
Fifth and ultimately, last point in contra is going to be your doctor may not have heard about this treatment yet.
Now both sides have been heard from and the Pros and Cons are stacked up, in favor and against.
Finally then, what is the “bottom line” here? Is spinal decompression therapy good or bad?
The answer is apparently “Yes” to both questions! spinal decompression therapy is both good and bad. The reader must determine which side, the good or the bad, outweighs the other…
