What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical and non-invasive.  It is a kind of motorized traction that gradually and very gently stretches a person's spine.  This therapy is used to remove pressure from the spinal disks in the back.  When spinal decompression is done properly, the disks can receive oxygen, water, and go on to heal from their current condition.

Some Facts About Spinal Decompression Therapy 

  • It is prescribed and overseen by a chiropractic care facility
  • It is NOT painful
  • Most individual sessions are less than an hour-long
  • Any side effects are minimal
  • Treatment generally begins to help after the first week
  • It is essentially guaranteed to work

Chiropractic care professionals at our center are experienced and skilled in treating back pain, neck pain, and many other conditions that can be alleviated by chiropractic and wellness care.
