Spinal Decompression Therapy

When you have back pain that won’t go away, you might find relief with spinal decompression. This group of treatments includes alternative therapies and surgery.

Spinal decompression describes different types of treatment that can offer back pain relief by taking pressure off the neural elements of your spine.

Why do people have spinal decompression therapy?

Your spine (backbone) provides support for your body. It consists of bones called vertebrae, with ligaments and spinal disks that keep it flexible. Your spinal column provides a nerve pathway that runs down the middle of these bones, ligaments and disks.

Spine injuries or degeneration (wear and tear) to your spine can cause pain. You might feel pain from compression in your spine that puts pressure on your spinal cord or nerves. Spinal decompression seeks to relieve the pressure to ease the pain.

10 Major Reasons to Consider Spinal Decompression Therapy

  • Bulging or Herniated Discs
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Disc Degeneration
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Spondylosis
  • Pinched Nerves
  • Failed Back Surgery
  • Arm/Leg Pain and Numbness
  • Chronic Neck or Back Pain that is not responding to traditional spinal treatment.

Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Physiological benefits:

  • Increases blood flow, improving nutrient supply into the disc.
  • Decreases intradiscal pressure
  • Promotes the regression of disk herniation
  • Reduces nerve compression
  • Facilitates disk rehydration

Physical benefits:

  • Decreases pain levels
  • Improves spinal mobility
  • Reduces muscle guarding
  • Enhances postural integrity
  • Develops core strength
  • Increases joint flexibility
  • Lowers stress levels
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Prevents new injuries
  • Promotes wellness
