Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy is motorized traction that gently stretches your spine to relieve pressure on the discs – the gel-like cushions between your vertebrae. If you suffer from pain related to bulging or herniated discs, spinal decompression therapy can alleviate pressure on the nerves and discs in your spine, and create space for discs to heal. When you create space for your compressed discs, it allows fluid and oxygen to permeate the disc material and promote healing.

How does spinal decompression therapy work?

Dr. Skinner’s spinal decompression technology can be tailored to each individual. It gently and safely stretches your spine in a specific area of pressure in a controlled manner. As your spine stretches, it creates negative pressure between your discs allowing the herniated (bulging) material to go back inside the disc.

Spinal decompression therapy is often effective in reducing pressure on your lower back to relieve the symptoms of sciatica, which are sometimes caused by bulging discs. During your spinal decompression appointment, you lie comfortably on a motorized table that provides traction and relaxation. It’s not painful; you just feel a gentle stretch in your spine.

How many treatments will I need?

Spinal decompression therapy is part of your comprehensive treatment plan at Action Chiropractic. Dr. Skinner determines how many sessions you need to help alleviate your back pain based on your condition. Typically, decompression therapy consists of a series of 15-30 treatments, and each one lasts 30-45 minutes.

You usually complete your treatments in a period of four to six weeks based on your condition, as Dr. Skinner customizes your therapeutic treatment plan so you achieve the maximum benefits. Other therapies such as heat and ice, or electric stimulation, and physical exercises, can complement your spinal decompression sessions.

How effective is spinal decompression at relieving back pain?

Both acute and chronic pain respond well to spinal decompression therapy. In fact, it has a 75% success rate helping patients get relief from severe back pain and pinched nerves in your neck or back. Spinal decompression therapy is a natural alternative that can improve your spine health without the unpleasant side effects of prescription pain medications that can become habit-forming and damage your liver and kidneys.
