Why Spinal Decompression?

What will Spinal Decompression Do For You?

Spinal decompression offers a non-invasive and highly effective solution for relieving chronic back pain. By gently stretching the spine, this therapy alleviates pressure on the discs and nerves, targeting the root cause of your discomfort. This process not only provides immediate relief but also promotes long-term healing by allowing nutrients to flow more freely to the affected areas, supporting tissue repair and regeneration. 

Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and gentle alternative to invasive procedures such as surgery. It carries minimal risks and side effects, making it suitable for individuals of all ages and health conditions. Whether you suffer from herniated discs, sciatica, or degenerative disc disease, spinal decompression can offer significant relief, allowing you to return to your daily activities with renewed vitality and comfort.

How Does It Work?

Back pain due to a herniated or bulging disc can be debilitating, and in the past, surgery was the answer. Today, we have highly­-successful advanced technology that allows us to relieve this pain without surgery. We use a system that combines a machine with an exceptionally precise computer program for a treatment called spinal decompression.

Using this computer technology and the decompression machine, we are able to create a custom treatment plan that decompresses the spine and pulls the herniated or bulging material back into the disc. The computer program is created and supervised by one of our highly trained staff. It gently stretches and relaxes the spine in rotation, which, over time, separates the vertebrae. This creates a vacuum­-like effect that pulls the soft bulging disc material back into the disc. This can not only clear up back pain, but also any pain caused by the pressure put on the nerves. For example, patients who have a herniated disc in the lower back may have shooting sciatic pain down their legs. Relieving the herniated disc will cause that pain to vanish.

Treatment time and frequency will depend on each patient’s unique condition; however, each spinal decompression treatment is usually about fifteen minutes. Patients usually have treatment a few times a week, and are typically finished with treatment within twelve weeks.

​​​​​​​If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will work with you to find a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body.
