As humans however, we decided that standing upright was a priority. So our spine developed with its 3 beautiful curves, 33 individual moving segments each with a cushy disc and several facet joints to support a wide range of movement.
" Would an inversion table help this?"
" I have a contraption that hangs over the door and pulls on me, what do you think about that?"
" I know someone who did VAX-D decompression, how is that different?"
" I have an 18th century medieval torture device, is that the same thing?"
So what can you do to help yourself while you are not in the office?
Follow the home care plan including core strengthening exercises, stretches and rest if necessary. Use proper lifting techniques, sleep on your back with a pillow under the knees. Use natural anti inflammatory substances like tumeric, support the joints with chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine. This list can go on for quite a while, but each situation is different and so each treatment plan is unique. Consistency is the key.
So before you go trying to figure out how to become reincarnated as an ant, try spinal decompression in this lifetime, your spine will thank you for it.
