Spinal Decompression

Understanding Chiropractic Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-surgical, traction-based therapy that gently stretches the spine. Our chiropractors use this technique to create negative pressure within the discs and spine. Doing this helps treat disc bulges and herniations by giving the affected discs space to retract to their proper placement. Spinal decompression also helps nutrients enter the disc to promote healing.

What Can Spinal Decompression Help With?

Spinal decompression can be a helpful treatment option for various conditions that cause pain and discomfort in the spine. Here is what we typically use spinal decompression to help with:

•             Lower Back Pain Treatment: Decompression can help relieve pain caused by disc bulges, herniations, and facet joint syndrome in the lower back.•             Neck Pain Treatment: Similar to lower back pain, decompression can address neck pain stemming from disc issues and facet joint dysfunction.
•             Headache Treatment and Migraine Treatment: When headaches or migraines originate from neck dysfunction, decompression can help alleviate pain by improving spinal alignment and reducing pressure on nerves.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression offers multiple benefits to patients experiencing spinal pain and disc issues. Some of the primary advantages of spinal decompression for treatment include:

•             Non-surgical and Minimally Invasive: Decompression avoids the risks associated with surgery and offers a safer alternative for pain management.

•             Pain Relief: This therapy can significantly reduce back and neck pain by creating negative pressure in the spine and improving disc health.

•             Improved Range of Motion: Increased space within the spine due to decompression often leads to better flexibility and range of motion.

•             Reduced Reliance on Medication: Decompression can help some patients decrease their dependence on pain medication for managing chronic pain.
