Non-surgical treatments for the spine

Meet the new physical therapy that relies on traction devices and bending more physical activity to end the pain of herniated discs and other spinal problems

Herniated Disc

When the disc, the cartilage between the vertebrae of the spine, is in crisis, the annoyances are not slow to appear

And only after a lot of evaluation that the experts can hammer out for the best therapy Sometimes it is chosen to control the pain through medication.

Many others, resorts to physical therapy Or, the solution is in surgery - minimally invasive or not. However, many agree that in most cases, treatment is palliative. Also, if the patient does not take care or do some exercise without guidance, pain once again give the air of his misfortune.

Not coincidentally, the physiotherapist Clara Holder Montenegro decided to study the subject to seek an alternative in the fight against troubles in the vertebrae.

After work and travel, the expert from the United States brought two outfits that, he said, bring relief to back problems, among them, a herniated disc, dehydration and spinal disc degeneration and instability.

One such device is a traction machine. She recalls a dentist’s chair and is coupled to a computer, through which the professional can calculate the loads applied to the patient.

Unlike the old traction tables, used in the 1970s, this depends on what is programmed by the physiotherapist.
