Spinal Decompression Therapy

Millions of people suffer from some form of back or neck pain, which can be completely disruptive to their everyday life. Unfortunately, many do not get the relief they are looking for and resort to pain medication or surgery. If you are suffering from chronic pain associated with bulging, degenerating, or herniated discs, you may benefit from treatment using a spinal decompression table.

What is spinal decompression and how does it work?

Spinal decompression therapy is a gentle, non-surgical treatment to help relieve pain.  This non-invasive technique is performed on a specialized traction table with the assistance of computer technology. The table works by slowly and steadily stretching the spinal column to alleviate abnormal pressure on the discs between the vertebrae. This stretching creates negative pressure in the disc and, as a result, bulging or herniated discs may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine  This also encourages movement of water, oxygen, and nutrients into the discs, promoting healing.

What conditions can spinal decompression treat?

Spinal decompression therapy aims to help patients who suffer from:

Bulging/Herniated Discs- when the cushion between the vertebrae bulges out or part of a disc pushes on a nerve

Degenerative Discs- when the cushion between the vertebrae begins to wear out

Sciatica- compression of a spinal nerve root in the low back

Spinal Stenosis-narrowing of spaces in your spine correlated with bone spurs or bulging herniating discs

Pinched Nerves- when a nerve gets compressed, causing pain, numbness, or tingling
