| || |
As the science and study of back pain continues to progress, new technology is constantly being developed to help with the non-drug treatment of this epidemic problem. One of the most recent advancements in technology for the treatment of back pain and spinal pain conditions is a technology called non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. "Decompression" is a technology that allows you to take pressure off of the spine which has the ability to decrease pain, improve spinal health and range of motion so that you can move, function and get back to your life.
New research published in 2013 compared two groups of people. ONe group took pain medication for lower back paina nd the other received a form of spinal decompression therapy. The results of the study showed that both groups had improved pain and mobility, but that the the "effects were much worse in group I, "1 meaning that group I didn;t have nearly as good outcomes as group II, which was the spinal decompression group.
Significant analgesic action and an improvement to spinal mobility were observed. Significantly better results were obtained in Group I where the patients had been treated with the use of lumbar traction."1
