What Really is Spinal Decompression?
Before we discuss the spinal decompression therapy, let’s talk about the backbone for better understanding. From a medical point of view the backbone or spine is our ultimate companion and friend. It not only plays a vital role in carrying messages to and from the brain enabling our brain to exercise its control over the body but also physically bares the weight of the body.
If you have persistent back pain you can hardly think about anything else, but for relief from pain. The back bone must be respected and taken care of the way it deserves.
The seven cervical vertebrae of the spine bare the weight of your head and neck and allow you to nod and shake your head, approximately 10kg.
The lower portion of the spine, or the lumber region of the vertebrae and the sacrum, support the entire upper structure of the human body when standing upright and walking. There is a very small amount of burden on the spine in a lying position, compared with when we are standing or sitting. But it’s never free from pressure for a single tiny moment. It also provides stiffening for the body and attachment for the pectoral and pelvic girdles and many muscles.
The ever-present pressure on the spine from all around, called compression leads to the deformity of the spine which might appear in the form of back pain issues.
Spinal Decompression Therapy Explained
The effect of compression, which may appear as a back pain issue, is removed by “Decompression Therapy”. The Spinal Decompression Therapy could be of both, surgical or non-surgical nature.
Like all surgical procedures, surgical- spinal -decompression carries a large amount of risky complications.
Up to one in three people continue to have symptoms after surgery, or develop symptoms again within a few years of surgery. (www.nhs.uk/conditions/lumbar-decompression-surgery/risks) . Recurrent symptoms, most of the time, can be caused by a weakened spine, or another slipped disc.
There are some more common risks associated with spinal decompression surgery, like infection, bleeding, blood clots, allergic reaction to anaesthesia and nerve or tissue damage. It is very difficult to tell who will benefit with decompression surgery.
Traction, like other non-surgical decompression procedures available on the market, is a one dimensional, unilateral pull or stretching of the spine, neither specifying any one segment nor working on individual vertebrate or intervertebral discs. A common side effect that patients may complain about is muscle spasms. The procedure involves motorized stretching, and the therapy sometimes stretches the back bone more than the body is accustomed to which can cause the muscles around the spine to spasm. Immediate medical help is recommended in such cases.
The Spinal Backrack
The Spinal Backrack, an innovative technology in spinal care and pain relief is the only absolutely free from side effects device. This is the outcome of the 45 years’ clinical experience of Mr. Bogdan Lukinski, M.Sc., an expert in spine rehabilitation. All that is needed is a few very simple exercises on the rack to treat and prevent back pain issues, and keep the backbone healthy as well.
The spinal Backrack unlike other products available on the market for “Spinal Decompression Therapy”, addresses and works on the individual vertebrate and discs of the backbone.
The Spinal Backrack not only decompresses the backbone by working on the individual parts of the spine and realigning it also aligns the vertebrae and discs and once the alignment is achieved and deformity, directly linked to compression, is vanished, back pain issues are gone for good.
