Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression is a drug-free, minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment for back pain and neck pain caused by spinal damage or injury. 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
What is Spinal Decompression?
By creating pressure around the discs in your spine, back decompression allows water and nutrients to draw back into your previously squished discs. This rehydration promotes disc healing and results in reduced pressure on adjacent nerves in your spine. With minimal side effects, spinal decompression treatment is safe and can help you resume your normal activities, without the disruptions of back and neck pain.
Other 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 unpinched
- 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
