Spinal decompression is shown to be successful in increasing mobility as well as increasing circulation. The treatment is gentle and comfortable, with most patients reporting a mild sense of stretching at their low back or neck.
How Does Spinal Decompression Work?
Decompression therapy involves stretching the spine, using a decompression table or similar instrument to relieve your back pain, neck pain, or pain in the arms and legs.
Spinal traction is a gentle or moderate force applied to the spine to separate the bones or vertebrae of the spine. The procedure can also be performed by hand.
Using this scientifically proven technique, our chiropractor pinpoints the compressed discs in your spine and uses spinal traction to advance healing and promote pain reduction.
Spinal decompression is a highly effective natural treatment to ease chronic or acute pain due to:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Pinched nerve
- Spinal arthritis
Is Decompression Therapy Right for You?
If you are suffering from neck pain or back pain, we have successfully used spinal decompression therapy to help a large percentage of people with spinal conditions.
We approach spinal decompression therapy as an individualized pain management strategy.
The decompression force involved in the treatment is calculated and adjusted based on your specific needs. Sessions are pain-free and conducted as an outpatient procedure at our chiropractic clinic.
After a detailed assessment of your condition, our trained and licensed doctor will create an overall treatment program.
Depending on the extent of your injury or damage to the spine, we will recommend decompression therapy or a combination of treatments specifically tailored to address the root causes of your neck and back pain.
Benefits of spinal decompression that encourage healing are:
- Pain relief and increased nutrition to discs
- Reduction of a bulge or protrusion in discs
- Nerves relax and become un-pinched
- Painful or arthritic spinal joints are stretched and decompressed for improved posture and pain relief
- Muscles, tendons, and ligaments are stretched and relaxed
- Improved circulation to the spine
- Detoxing inflammatory chemicals, bringing oxygen and more beneficial cells to the area
