Spinal decompression devices are safe only when used appropriately, according to Pinched Nerve in Neck HQ. Back decompression devices should be used under a doctor’s guidance. Some common back decompression devices include inversion tables, posture pumps, arched back stretchers, back stretchers and suspension devices.
According to Spine-Health, multiple studies have shown that back decompression therapy is effective in treating back and neck pain without the patient having to undergo invasive surgeries. The devices are used by patients to perform exercises at home. Patients should follow both the doctor’s guidance and the user’s manual carefully to avoid accidents and injuries, states Pinched Nerve in Neck HQ.
