If you’re in pain from back problems, such as disc issues or nerve damage, spinal decompression can provide you with effective pain relief. It is a safe, all-natural, non-surgical procedure that our doctors administer. Spinal decompression helps release tension in your back system to improve overall body function and get you the long-lasting pain relief you need.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
We use spinal decompression therapy for degenerated or ruptured spinal discs, nervous system issues, and back or neck pain relief. The treatment technique is performed on a traction table and uses the same basic strategies to stretch the spine that chiropractors have long been using.
Once you’re secured on the spinal decompression table, our doctor systematically adjusts the device to stretch your spinal column. As adjustments for stretching and relaxation are made, treatment steadily helps relieve pressure on the discs that sit between your vertebrae. Since your vertebrae, discs, and spinal cord are no longer compressed and out of shape or alignment, there is much less pressure and tension in your neck, back, and hips. Obstructions blocking the passage of blood, fluids, oxygen, and nerve impulses are also eliminated.
Spinal decompression therapy is a viable alternative to surgery for disc trauma or damage or sciatic nerve damage because this gentle technique stimulates and supports your body’s natural healing process. Our chiropractors will help diagnose your condition, identify your pain, and determine whether or not spinal decompression therapy as the ideal treatment for your pain relief and recovery.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is a motorized traction technique designed to relieve pain. It has been proven useful at alleviating pain associated with bulging and herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and relapsed or failed back surgery.
Spinal decompression takes place on a motorized table. The upper half stays secure, while the lower half moves when activated. To treat pain in your lower back, you sit in a harness around your hips, which is attached to the end of the table by your feet. As the top portion of the table remains fixed, the bottom slides back and forth to decompress your spine and slowly alleviate pressure. That cycle is repeated for several minutes.
We believe in whole-body health, and by treating multiple systems at once, your entire body will feel the effects of pain relief. Spinal decompression treatments relieve pressure on tense muscles, compressed discs and vertebrae, compacted nerves, and more.
