Spinal Decompression

Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of motorized traction that helps relieve back and/or neck pain in many patients. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. This stretching force changes the force and position of the spine which takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This, in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

Doctors have used nonsurgical spinal decompression in an attempt to treat:

  • Back or neck pain.
  • Sciatica, which is pain, weakness, or tingling that extends down the leg
  • Bulging or herniated disks or degenerative disk disease
  • Damaged spinal joints (called facet syndrome)
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots

How Is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Done?

You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy. The doctor fits you with a harness around your pelvis and another around your torso. You lie face face up on a computer-controlled table. A doctor operates the computer, customizing treatment to your specific needs.

Treatment may last 20 to 30 minutes and you may require 20 to 48 treatments over five to nine weeks. Before or after therapy, you may have other types of treatment, such as:

  • Electrical stimulation (electric current that causes certain muscles to contract)
  • Ultrasound (the use of sound waves to generate heat and promote healing)
  • Heat or cold therapy
  • Massage Therapy
  • Chiropractic Adjustments
