Spinal Decompression

Back pain is a prevalent issue that affects millions of people worldwide. Whether it's caused by poor posture, injury, or degenerative conditions, the impact of back pain on daily life can be debilitating. Advancements in medical technology have led to the development of non-surgical treatments such as spinal decompression therapy, offering hope to those seeking relief from persistent back discomfort.


Understanding Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive therapy that gently stretches the spine to relieve pressure, promote healing, and create negative pressure within spinal discs, allowing them to retract and relieve nerve pressure. This process supports natural healing by facilitating the flow of essential fluids into the discs.

Types of Spinal Decompression Treatments

There are various methods of spinal decompression therapy, each with its unique approach to alleviating pressure on the spine. These techniques may include the following:

  • Mechanical Traction Devices: Utilizing a mechanized table, this method gently stretches the spine, creating negative pressure within the discs.
  • Inversion Tables: By inverting the body at an angle, gravitational force helps to decompress the spine and relieve pressure off of the discs.
  • Manual Spinal Decompression: This technique involves our chiropractors applying manual traction to the spine to alleviate pressure on the discs and nerves.

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression can be effective in treating various spinal conditions. The treatment can help reduce pan and improve functionality in individuals who have herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and facet syndrome. When you are consistent with treatment, you’ll notice relief in chronic back pain and any symptoms you may be experiencing.

Comparing Spinal Decompression with Traditional Treatments

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical alternative to traditional treatments for back pain such as medication, physical therapy, and surgery. While traditional treatments may provide temporary relief, they often fail to address the root cause of the pain. In contrast, spinal decompression targets the underlying spinal issues, providing a potential long-term solution for chronic back pain. Take a look at some differences between spinal decompression and traditional treatments below:

Traditional Treatments

Non-invasive and drug-free

Physical therapy may require prolonged sessions

Targeted treatment with potential long-term relief

Surgical procedures carry inherent risks
