Spinal Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Whether you have severe back pain or a bulging or herniated disc, you want effective and lasting relief. Many people are told they’ll need surgery or painkillers, both of which can be risky. Non-surgical spinal decompression is a drug-free option to address your pain or disc issue. Best of all, you won’t need to go under the knife.

Conditions It Can Help

Here are some of the main conditions that decompression can address:

  • Bulging or herniated disc
  • Degenerated disc
  • Neuropathy
  • Severe arthritis
  • Stenosis

Most of the issues that spinal decompression can help with stem from disc problems in the lower back or lower neck.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Unlike an inversion table, spinal decompression is more targeted. You’re harnessed to our decompression table to address the affected area. Then, adjustable mechanical traction artificially rehydrates the discs by creating a pumping action. It does this by alternating periods of stretch and periods of rest over a 20-minute session. When your body is healthy, this rehydration occurs during movement, such as walking or running. By restoring mobility to the joint, it can heal itself, slowing and in some cases reversing the degeneration.

Spinal decompression isn’t painful while you’re on the table. You may experience some muscle soreness or tightness after the first few sessions, but that generally goes away once your body begins to regain mobility.

Who Needs Spinal Decompression?

The first thing we’ll do at On Purpose Chiropractic is discuss the symptoms you’ve been having. If you’ve already had imaging done, you can bring that with you for Dr. Kleinberg to review. He’ll do a thorough exam and take X-rays if needed, and then explain what’s going on with your situation, along with his recommendations. If decompression isn’t the right fit for you, he’ll let you know.

If decompression is appropriate for your condition, we recommend giving it a try. It won’t hurt you, and it may help you avoid surgery. Surgery outcomes are generally only five years of being pain-free, because they don’t address the spine globally. Chiropractic care combined with spinal decompression looks at the spine as a whole to address the underlying cause of the problem.
