Avoid surgery with safe and effective spinal decompression therapy.
One of the most effective forms of chiropractic treatment is spinal decompression. Spinal decompression aims to stretch and lengthen the spine to relieve the pressure placed on the vertebrae and discs from certain spine conditions, such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis.
How is Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Done?
You are fully clothed during spinal decompression therapy. The therapist fits you with a harness around your pelvis and another around your trunk. You either lie face down or face up on a computer-controlled table. A therapist operates the computer, customizing treatment to your specific needs.
Spinal decompression works by gently stretching the spine. That changes the force and position of the spine. This change takes pressure off the spinal disks, which are gel-like cushions between the bones in your spine, by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in your spine. This in turn, helps promote movement of water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids into the disks so they can heal.

If you are living in pain from a herniated or bulging disc, we will customize a spinal decompression treatment plan that corresponds with your body.
