  • It is non-surgical
  • It does not require expensive medications
  • It is much more affordable than surgery

  • The recovery time is short — you can go home right away
  • Patients of all ages can benefit from it
  • It is quick, usually around 30 minutes
  • Less chance of side effects
  • Since each patient is unique, the amount of pain a patient feels will vary on a case by case basis. Thus, we will ensure the treatment focuses on the specific patient's needs.

    How spinal decompression works

    Spinal decompression is a non-surgical procedure that our chiropractor performs. This motorized traction works by stretching the spine to change its position and force. The result is reduced pressure in your spinal disks. That lower pressure can cause any herniated or bulging discs to retract, which in turn removes pressure from your nerves.

    The result is a combination of pain relief and encouraging movement of nutrient-rich fluids, water and oxygen into your disks, which speeds up healing. Essentially, patients can benefit from spinal decompression therapy to help them relieve pressure on the nerves, creating pain relief. It can assist with pain from a range of causes.

    Those with the following conditions may experience relief from spinal decompression:

  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves
  • Neck pain
  • Tingling and numbness in extremities
  • Pain from arthritis
  • Facet syndrome
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Disc bulges
  • Spinal cord compression
  • The Spinal decompression process

    Our chiropractors perform spinal decompression in our offices and patients can be fully clothed during the therapy. The chiropractor starts by placing one harness around your trunk and another around the pelvis. You lie down on a computer-controlled table that our chiropractor can adjust to control your treatment.

    The actual treatment involves a series of chiropractic adjustments tailored to your particular situation. The goal of this is to ensure your spine’s vertebrae are correctly aligned. Most spinal decompression sessions will last between 20 and 45 minutes. Depending on your condition and pain levels, you may need up to 20 or 28 treatments over the course of several weeks. It is common, however, to start noticing pain relief within just six to 10 treatments.

    Spinal decompression therapy works by creating negative pressure between the discs. Doing so can encourage bulging or herniated discs to reposition or retract. The treatment can also reduce the pressure in the disc. The decrease in pressure encourages healing nutrients to enter the disc. Sometimes, spinal decompression gets supplemented with additional treatments. These can include ultrasounds to generate heat, cold or heat therapy and electrical stimulation.

    Follow-up care after spinal decompression

    After spinal decompression, we strongly encourage patients to work on the at-home exercises that we suggest. We will give you instructions on the best at-home exercises for your situation either before or after the decompression treatment. It is also wise to schedule the occasional follow-up chiropractic appointment.

    This professional chiropractic care will ensure that your spine remains healthy, minimizing the risk of a repeat flare-up. We also recommend that you take some necessary self-care steps at home. Our chiropractors suggest complementing your at-home exercises with specific nutritional supplements and ensuring you drink enough water.

    Our team also encourages patients to rest following spinal decompression therapy as this helps reduce stress on the spine.
