How to decompress the spine? The most effective way to decompress the spine is with spinal decompression treatment from a qualified chiropractor or doctor. It is a non-surgical form of traction that stretches your spine to restore the natural space between your vertebrae. At our clinic, we offer spinal decompression treatment as a way to relieve back pain and help you restore your mobility so you can get back to all the activities you haven’t been able to do.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression therapy is used to create an optimal healing environment for degenerating or ruptured spinal discs, nervous system issues, and back pain relief. The treatment uses the same basic principles to stretch the spine that chiropractors have been using for years.
Since this gentle technique stimulates and supports the body’s natural healing process, spinal decompression is a viable alternative to surgery for patients who are affected by disc trauma or damage. Our goal is always to locate the underlying source of your pain and provide the most reliable all-natural treatment available. When you simply mask your symptoms with pain medication, the root cause never goes away and you will never experience long-lasting relief.
Spinal decompression has been proven effective in relieving pain associated with:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Bulging discs
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Relapse or failed back surgery
How Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression therapy works by slowly stretching the spinal column to relieve pressure on the discs in between vertebrae. This therapy allows discs to retract and receive an inflow of nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen. It takes place on a motorized table, the lower half of which moves when activated.
To treat disc problems in your lower back, the doctor will wrap a harness around your hips and attach it to the bottom end of the table, near your feet. As the upper portion of the table remains fixed, the lower part of the table slides back and forth to stretch and relax your spine, alleviating pressure slowly. The gentle distractive forces of spinal decompression will improve blood and nutrient flow to the injured area. You'll experience cycles of stretch and relaxation.
Spinal decompression therapy will extend your spine to enable the natural space in between your spinal vertebrae to be restored. As our doctor decompresses your spine, you’ll feel relief because there’s no longer tension on affected nerves that run through the spinal column. By treating the nervous system, your entire body will feel the pain relief effects.
