Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Chiropractor

Spinal decompression is one of the best treatments for back pain and various skeletal ailments. However, only a few people understand what spinal decompression consists of or how it can help them. At Unity Chiropractic, our chiropractor can provide spinal adjustments and spinal decompression therapy to patients.


What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy is traction that eases pressure on the spine. This therapy can help relieve pain from herniated or degenerative discs, sciatica, pinched nerves, and more. Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine and taking pressure off the disc and nerves. This therapy is non-invasive and often effective in treating back pain.

Am I a Good Candidate for Spinal Decompression?

Our chiropractor will consult you to determine if you are a good candidate for this therapy. Most people suffering from back pain or other skeletal ailments benefit from spinal decompression. However, if you've recently received surgery or are pregnant, you may not be viable for this type of therapy.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression therapy is usually done on a traction table on which the patient lies. The table will then slowly stretch the spine, with the amount of stretch depending on the needs of the patient. The therapist will monitor the patient during the session to ensure they are comfortable and not in pain.

Spinal decompression therapy is usually done in a series of sessions lasting about 30 minutes each. Most patients will see a difference after just a few sessions, but it is often recommended to continue treatment for several weeks or even months to get the full benefit.

What Are the Benefits of Spinal Decompression?

There are many benefits of spinal decompression, including:

  • Relief from back pain
  • Increased mobility
  • Improved posture
  • Faster recovery time

Is Spinal Decompression Safe?

Spinal decompression is a safe and effective treatment for back pain. The most common side effects of spinal decompression are mild discomfort during the session. This discomfort is usually due to the spine being stretched beyond its normal range of motion. Some patients may also experience headaches or fatigue after a session. Although, these side effects disappear within a day.
