If you’re having chronic spinal problems, you may have contemplated resorting to surgery. Perhaps your doctor has even recommended that you go through a procedure or you’ve already seen a surgeon. What you may not be aware of is that spinal decompression is a fantastic option for disc-related difficulties such as

  • Disc herniation
  • Disc bulge
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Failed back surgery
  • Facet syndrome

How Spinal Decompression Works

Spinal decompression is a form of therapy that involves a specialized table. It uses traction forces at a level that your body doesn’t react to. With a negative pressure applied to the spine, the disc can be reabsorbed. Fluids and nutrients can reach the disc as it’s put back into its proper place, allowing your body to heal.

Your Thorough Evaluation Process

If you’re wondering whether spinal decompression is right for you, we will be happy to evaluate you. During our examination process, we can identify if you are a candidate. If so, we’ll get you started right away. Typically, you’ll receive a total of 25-40 treatment sessions of spinal decompression. If you look at before-and-after MRIs, you can see the disc reabsorption that has occurred during your treatment period.

Though nonsurgical and a simple concept, spinal decompression is highly effective.

Combining Chiropractic and Spinal Decompression

Did you know that chiropractic care and spinal decompression share many of the same benefits? After you get adjusted by your chiropractor, you’ll go to our decompression table. It’s in a darkened, relaxing space. We’ll tolerance-test you first and begin with shorter periods of time on the table. With each visit, we’ll add time to your session.

We’ll likely start with a high frequency, such as three times a week. Research supports that beginning with this frequency is beneficial. There is a button you can press at any time if you’d like to stop or get attention, and we’ll come to you immediately.
