Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression

Overview of Services

Spinal decompression is a service we offer that helps to alleviate pressure and pain within the spine. During the procedure, the patient lies on a table and is fastened in at two different spots along their body, usually at the pelvis and torso. The device is operated by a doctor and works by gently and subtly stretching the spine. This action will change the force and position of the spine.

The change, in turn, takes pressure off the gel-like cushions between your bones in your spine by creating a negative pressure within the disc. This service, offered by our office, helps bulging or herniated disks retract, taking pressure off of the nerves in your spine. Spinal decompression promotes the healing of the disks within the spine by allowing water, oxygen, and other components to move within the spine and to the affected areas. Moreover, spinal decompression usually includes multiple treatments within a short span of a few weeks. The treatment has incremental levels based on pain level and pressure on the nerves and the certain condition each patient is dealing with.One of the primary benefits of spinal decompression is pain relief. The constant rubbing of the bones within the spine can be very painful. This service, because of how expensive it normally costs, is generally not offered by a majority of businesses. This additional service can be considered an alternative to surgery as a way to reduce pain and promote spinal healing.
