Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment that has been proven effective in relieving pain and discomfort associated with various spinal conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, and spinal stenosis. This therapy is designed to create negative pressure in the spinal discs, which can help to alleviate pressure on nerves and promote the natural healing process. Spinal decompression can be performed through a variety of techniques, including traction devices and motorized tables, and is often used in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments for optimal results. If you are suffering from back or neck pain, spinal decompression may be a safe and effective treatment option for you.

How Spinal Decompression Works


Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that aims to relieve back pain caused by herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, and other spinal conditions. The treatment works by gently stretching the spine, creating negative pressure that helps to relieve pressure on the spinal discs. During the treatment, patients lie on a decompression table that uses computerized technology to apply traction to the spine. This helps to elongate the spine, allowing more space between the vertebrae and reducing pressure on the nerves.

The decompression process is designed to promote the natural healing of the spinal discs by encouraging the flow of nutrient-rich fluids to the affected area. This increased flow of nutrients can help to promote healing and reduce inflammation, which can significantly reduce pain. The therapy is usually performed over several sessions. Spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for back pain that can help patients avoid surgery and long-term use of prescription drugs.
