Spinal Decompression at Spinal Solutions Restorative Chiropractic & Stretch Therapy

Spinal decompression is a computer aided technology that treats persistent neck, back, sciatic nerve pain and radicular pain caused by herniated or degenerative spinal discs. This non-surgical therapy is ideal for those who want to avoid taking medication or resorting to surgery to get lasting relief.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression is applied on a specialized table with advanced computer technology. By pulling at specific angles and forces, negative forces are created inside the intervertebral disc. This vacuum inside the disc draws back in extruded material and bulging discs, relieving low back pain and sciatica.

The therapy works by slowly, gradually and gently stretching your spinal column to relieve abnormal pressure on the discs situated between your vertebrae. Spinal decompression also fosters imbibition, which is the increased blood flow to your spinal discs. This process encourages nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen to flow inside, where they stimulate cell renewal, tissue repair, and long-term healing.

What to Expect

During each session, you will feel a slow lengthening of your spine, as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure. The treatment process is safe and relaxing, and your doctor will always be in the room as the treatment proceeds.

Each treatment will last approximately 30 minutes. Research and clinical evidence show an average of 10-16 sessions delivered over 6-8 weeks are needed to achieve theraputic results, though every individual will be assessed after each session to determine future needs.

Conditions Spinal Decompression Can Address

The primary goal of spinal decompression therapy is to provide immediate pain relief and promote an optimal healing environment for various spinal disc conditions. These include the following:

Spinal discs that have been pushed outside of their usual space in the spinal canal can apply pressure to neighboring nerves, resulting in localized pain or pain in other areas of the body. If left untreated, a bulging disc is likely to ultimately rupture.

Spinal discs that rupture and leak some of their soft interior gel have herniated or ruptured. The gel from a herniated disc can aggravate nearby nerves, and may even produce a burning sensation that radiates from the lower back into the legs.

These discs are affected by age-related degeneration and may have low fluid or tears in their outer shell. They may also lead to the development of painful bone spurs that encroach on the spinal nerves.

This type of pain radiates from the back into the hips, legs or feet, or from the neck to the arms/hands. The pain travels along the spinal nerve. Numbness can accompany the leg/arm pain, tingling, and muscle weakness. When the spinal nerve gets compressed (pinched) or inflamed, radicular pain often occurs.
