Spinal Traction Therapy in Lake Forest, CA: Spinal traction therapy (spinal decompression) is a treatment that helps alleviate pain associated with the discs in the spine that are between vertebrae. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine using a traction table or similar motorized device. The goal is to relieve pain and increase functionality in the spine.

Due to age, lifestyle or injury, discs can bulge and become herniated or degenerate over time. Once this process begins, pain, limited range of motion and discomfort may occur in the spine and legs. This low-risk treatment is essential for anyone with lower back issues.

Spinal traction can help with the following ailments:

  • Back or neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging or herniated disks
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Worn spinal joints (posterior facet syndrome)
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots

Spinal traction treatment alleviates pressure and elongates the spine, relieving pain and allowing the body to heal faster

After spinal decompression, patients will feel elongated and relaxed. Other therapies may be combined with spinal decompression such as diet recommendations and exercises depending on the patient. It is nonsurgical and painless.

There are various kinds of surgical spinal decompression, but they are usually classified as a laminectomy or a microdiscectomy. This specialized treatment can improve posture, flexibility and daily living. Creating space and lowering pressure in the spine will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances to the discs. These nutrients are important for improving body functions. This lower back treatment allows the body to stretch in a way you would not be able to at home.

So what brought me to see Dr. Olsen is that I have had multiple issues due to exposure to Agent Orange some 40 years ago! I had just got out of the hospital and suffered with foot pain, back pain, and breathing issues.

Dr. Olsen was able to relieve those pains that I was unsuccessful after trying exercise and rehab programs.

He was able to get rid of the limp in my right leg that I have had for 6 years and back pain that o have had for years. My overall health is great with higher energy levels. I’m able to exercise more which, includes walking and light weights. I’ll be starting a yoga program soon.

Dr. Olsen didn’t push me to great lengths but he did push on a slower level. With all of my issues I didn’t expect Dr. Olsen to take on my many challenges but he did and I am grateful. Due to his efforts, I have already described my use of oxygen has been cut in half. I am working on getting off the oxygen completely after being on it for 10 years.

I would recommend this treatment to those who are looking for an alternative to standard drugs.
