Your Guide to Spinal Decompression

We’ve Got Your Back
Approximately 16 million adults in the U.S. suffer from back pain. Whether it’s caused by chronic strain, hernias, poor posture, or an acute injury, back pain can seriously impact your quality of life.
Spinal Pain Explained
Disc issues are among the leading causes of spinal tightness and pain. If you’ve been experiencing discomfort in your spine, there’s a significant chance your discs could be:
Problems like these don’t necessarily require expensive surgeries or complicated recoveries. They may be healed by something as simple as spinal decompression.
What is Spinal Decompression?
Spinal decompression is the process of moving your herniated, bulging, or herniated spinal discs back into place, relieving the excess pressure on them and allowing them to heal.
Spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for spinal pain. It’s also a straightforward experience:
1. Your chiropractor will listen to your description of your pain and conduct an examination in order to determine whether decompression is the right approach.
2. You will be placed on a spinal decompression table, which uses a computer program to safely stretch your spine. This places negative pressure on your spine, alleviating pressure on your discs, allowing them to heal, and alleviating your pain.
3. Your chiropractor will provide you with instructions that are specific to your needs in order to facilitate your spinal healing. Most people require about 12 decompression sessions in order to fully recover.
A Closer Look at the Decompression Table
Spinal decompression tables use sophisticated computer system to accomplish two major goals:
Determining how much your muscles are reflexively trying to guard your spine and correcting your stretches accordingly in order to prevent discomfort or injury.
Stretching your spine using two separate moving parts in order to create negative pressure. The speed, length, and intensity of your decompression will be completely tailored to your physiological needs.
