What Is Spinal Decompression?

Do you suffer from back pain or sciatica? If you do, you’re not alone. One out of three people report suffering from back pain each year.

Our understanding of the science of back pain has grown considerably over the last few years, and our office provides the latest state-of-the art treatment for back pain.

One of the most modern methods of back pain treatment that we offer in our clinic is spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression is a painless way to restore your back to health. Studies have shown that spinal decompression can effectively treat back pain, sciatica, disc herniation, and other common pain complaints.

Spinal decompression helps your back recover by relieving the pressure on spinal discs, allowing them to return to their normal, healthy state.

How does spinal decompression help your spine heal?

In many cases of injury or chronic back pain, the individual segments of the spine become immobile, tight, and restricted. This rigidity of the spine creates tremendous pressure on the soft discs that cushion the spine.

Spinal decompression therapy uses computer-controlled traction to slowly and gently stretch the spine. This gentle stretching reduces the pressure on the discs that protect your spine and helps the discs hydrate and regain it’s flexibility.

If you have questions about how decompression therapy can help you improve your health, give our office a call.
