This non-invasive, low-force treatment works to gradually restore spine health and frequently functions as a complement to a variety of chiropractic therapies. Continue reading to learn more about spinal decompression and how it can help you and your loved ones.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a form of instrument-assisted, motorized traction designed to promote back pain relief and tissue healing. The treatment functions to gently stretch the spine, thereby altering both the positioning and internal pressure of the intervertebral discs. 

Through gentle spinal stretching, non-surgical decompression creates negative intradiscal pressure, which encourages bulging or herniated discs to slowly retract into their normal position. This gradual change helps alleviate pressure on nerve roots and other spinal structures, thereby allowing discs to absorb a fresh influx of oxygenated blood and nutrient-rich fluids which promote expedited healing.

Conditions That Can Benefit from Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

A wide variety of conditions related to spinal degeneration or injury may benefit from non-surgical decompression therapy, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Bulging or herniated spinal discs
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis and spondylosis
  • Radiculopathy
  • Sciatica

Though the treatment is often highly effective on its own, decompression is frequently included as part of a comprehensive treatment approach to address back pain and degenerative spinal conditions. Because the therapy helps to alleviate discomfort associated with spinal dysfunction, it typically increases the efficacy of complementary chiropractic treatments.

It Is Important To Utilize Spinal Decompression Sooner Than Later

At LaRuffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab, we use a specialized decompression table that delivers gradual, targeted traction to the spine. During treatment, you will lie comfortably — in either a supine or prone position — on top of the motorized decompression table. Using a gentle harness, your chiropractor will secure you to the table in the appropriate position before engaging the treatment. 

Over a period of several minutes, the table will gradually expand and contract, gently stretching your spine and providing intermittent periods of relaxation. You should not feel discomfort during the treatment; however, you will feel a pronounced stretching sensation throughout the treatment area.

Depending on your unique condition and the recommendations of your chiropractor, decompression treatments may last anywhere from 30-45 minutes. The number of treatments necessary for maximum effect will also depend on your chiropractic evaluation and your response to therapy. 

If you are suffering from sciatic never pain, back pain, or similar conditions, spinal decompression can greatly improve the quality of your life and can help you find pain relief.
