What is Spinal Decompression? It is a unique method of treating neck and lower back issues. Aging, injury, or wear and tear can result in damage to the flexible discs that cushion the vertebrae that make up your spine. Spinal decompression is a simple procedure. It is done over a series of appointments that will stretch your spine to enable the natural space between your vertebrae to be restored.

How Spinal Decompression Works
Spinal decompression therapy works by relieving pressure on the discs in between vertebrae, allowing discs to retract and receive an inflow of nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen. The procedure takes place on a motorized table, the lower half of which moves when activated.
When receiving the procedure, you’re secured on the device’s table, where our doctor systematically adjusts the device to stretch your spinal column. As adjustments are made, there will be much less pressure and tension in your neck, back, and hips. Since your vertebrae, discs, and spinal cord are no longer compressed and out of shape or alignment. Obstructions that may block the passage of blood, fluids, oxygen, and nerve impulses are also eliminated.
Because this gentle technique supports and stimulates the body’s natural healing methods, it’s a viable alternative to surgical intervention for patients affected by disc trauma or damage. Spinal decompression is a relatively short procedure, usually taking less than an hour per treatment. The therapy is painless and feels like a gentle stretch. Our chiropractor designs your treatment plan to target your specific symptoms.
