What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a form of physical therapy that is based on spinal traction. It can offer you a more advanced form of traction than other types of treatment. It is especially effective if you suffer from a slipped or herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, or sciatica.

Many patients who have had spinal surgery also find spinal decompression therapy to be particularly helpful.

The therapy itself involves lying on a table that includes a support component. The support component is intended to keep the rest of your body stable while traction is applied to key points in your spine. As a carefully controlled amount of force is applied to targeted areas, your spine is allowed to decompress, and you will be able to find relief from your pain.

How Can Spinal Decompression Benefit You?

For many patients, spinal decompression is the answer when all other efforts have failed.

It offers patients a variety of unique benefits, including:

  • Noninvasive solution to pain
  • Safe alternative to pain relievers
  • Improved circulation and ability to absorb nutrients

It can also be combined with physical therapy to further improve flexibility, mobility, build strength in the muscles, and achieve greater muscle control and stamina. A stronger back is a healthier back, but you have to get rid of the pain in order to move forward. Spinal decompression therapy allows you to address the root of the problem and get past it.
