Spinal decompression is a safe, all-natural, non-surgical procedure that can provide you with pain relief. Our doctor administers this therapeutic treatment to help release tension in your body, including your skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems, to get you the long-lasting pain relief you’ve been looking for.
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 technique is performed on a traction table, using the same basic principles to stretch the spine that chiropractors have been using for years.
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.
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 chiropractor will help diagnose your condition and ensure that spinal decompression therapy is ideal for your pain relief.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction designed to relieve pain. It has been proven effective in relieving pain associated with:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Bulging discs
- Herniated discs
- Spinal stenosis
- Relapse or failed back surgery
Spinal decompression 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.
Although you might feel alone in your painful struggle, we want to assure you that you’re not. We offer free consultations so that you can come in and tell us about your condition. We will then recommend a treatment plan to address your unique case.
