Spinal Decompression Therapy
If you are suffering from back pain caused by disc herniations, bulges, or other injuries, spinal decompression therapy may be able to alleviate your discomfort. As a non-invasive, natural procedure, spinal decompression does not require a lengthy recovery like back surgery—allowing you to benefit from your treatment without any downtime.
A relatively new back pain treatment, spinal decompression therapy was approved by the FDA in 2001 and has quickly become one of the most popular methods for back pain relief. This therapy works by reducing pressure on the spinal discs, in turn creating a vacuum-like effect that retracts abnormal protrusions in the disc to allow more room for pinched nerves. This also allows the discs to rehydrate and obtain vital nutrients to begin the healing process.
Spinal decompression therapy can be used for a range of back problems, including:
- herniated discs
- bulging discs
- degenerative disc disease
- spinal stenosis
- posterior facet syndrome
Our practice also offers a number of complementary treatments that can be used in conjunction with spinal decompression therapy, such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy. When combined, these methods are effective at eliminating back pain.
