Belt for Non-surgical Lumbar Decompression Therapy
Chronic low back pain stemming from degenerative changes in the spine is quite common. In fact, such changes in the spine are evident in an estimated 95% of those over the age of 50, with the lumbar spine being the most common site of pain. Such changes can lead to sciatica, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, or a spine compression fracture in the back, to name just a few.
Treatment of such back injuries typically focuses on reducing pressure on the tissues of one's spine in the interest of easing pain and any pressure placed on the spinal cord or its nerve roots. Doing so often involves back decompression.
There are both surgical and non-surgical modes of spinal decompression treatment, but in either case the goal is the same: relieve pressure on one or several pinched nerves of the spinal cord.
This decompression back belt for stenosis and more produces intracavitary pressure that reduces pressure one the discs of one’s spine. The low-friction pulley system of this decompression back brace makes it easy to apply this pressure. The pulley system amplifies one's force by a ratio of three-to-one, for smooth, easy generation of abdominal pressure that is helpful for at-home spinal decompression treatment.
This pulley system is so easy operate that one can control the level of support using just one hand. Thus, the back brace for compression fracture care can easily be adjusted as one shifts from a standing to a sitting position or vice versa.
The belt for spinal compression fracture treatment comes with a tall posterior panel for additional support. If you do not prefer a chair-back style belt, you can easily remove the panel without the use of any special tools. The panel can also be easily adjusted to a different height as well.
The spinal decompression brace, along with its posterior panels contours and conforms to each patient. Adding to its comfort factor, the compression fracture back brace is lightweight and breathable.
The low-profile spinal decompression back brace is quite thin, so one does not have to worry about covering or moving around in a bulky back belt.
The lumbar decompression brace comes in a simple, black color.
Lower Back Decompression at Home
What is spinal decompression? The word “decompression” is typically used in reference to lumbar decompression surgery to create more space for one’s nerve root(s) and to create a better healing environment.
But surgical spinal decompression is not the only solution for those dealing with lumbar pain stemming from a compression fracture of the back, a herniated disc, sciatica or spinal stenosis.
Back decompression therapy is one alternative mode of treatment. This typically refers to the utilization of spinal traction and periods of relaxation to gently stretch the spine. The goal of this is to ease pain and create negative intradiscal pressure that promotes retraction or repositioning of one’s damaged disc(s). Whether spinal decompression really works is disputed.
Back belts for lumbar spine decompression works in a similar manner, creating intra-abdominal pressure intended to ease pressure on the spine. They also help limit harmful motion so that healing can occur. In addition, the support they provide limits stress on the tissues of the low back.
There are also a number of stretches and exercises that one can perform in the interests of decompression therapy for back pain. One should rely on guidance from a professional as to what moves are appropriate for a particular condition.
Improving one’s posture can also help reduce lumbar back pain. Wearing back braces for compression fractures with a chair-back insert can help with this, especially when one is sitting.
A period of rest and activity modification to minimize stress on the back is also a component of lumbar spinal decompression non-surgical care.
Other steps when it comes to treating lumbar pain at home include using ice and heat therapy to manage pain, inflammation and stiffness. Medications can stabilize bone density for those dealing with osteoarthritis or compression fractures. There are also a number of prescription and over-the-counter drugs one can take to manage pain and inflammation.
Non-surgical Spinal Decompression
Those looking for an alternative to open or percutaneous disc decompression surgery or as a supplement to or instead of traditional spinal disc decompression therapy should consider this lumbar back brace. Following is a list of the features that help it to stand out in terms of spinal decompression treatments:
- Low-friction pulley system makes it easy to apply decompression back therapy
- The pulley system amplifies one's force by a 3-to-1 ratio
- Flexible pulley system of this back brace for lumbar compression fracture care can be quickly adjusted with just one hand
- Produces intracavitary pressure to reduce load on the intervertebral discs
- Sagittal control of the lumbar belt helps prevent problematic movements of the torso
- Includes a tall posterior panel for added support from the L1 to below the L5 vertebra
- Chair-back panel is contoured for a comfortable fit
- Panel can be removed or adjusted without using special tools
- Belt applying decompression for back pain is constructed of material that is thin, lightweight, and breathable
- The brace applying spinal decompression for a bulging disc conforms to one's body
- Black belt applying spinal decompression for herniated disc or other injuries is low-profile
