Spinal Decompression Therapy

Back pain can be extremely disruptive to your life. Spinal decompression therapy for back pain is a non-surgical treatment that can help remedy the pain resulting from bulging, herniated, or degenerative discs in the spine by removing some of the pressure. Discs serve as cushions between the vertebrae (the bones of the spine), but when they bulge or compress the nerve roots, they can cause excruciating back pain. By promoting a healing environment for these damaged discs, this type of therapy can reduce back pain effectively. By successfully treating your disc(s), more oxygen and nutrients can reach them, accelerating the healing process.

Spinal Decompression Therapy Process

Spinal decompression therapy begins by lying back on a therapeutic table that uses a motorized traction device to gently stretch the spine. Your doctor controls the table electronically, using custom settings to decompress the injured parts of your spine. Each treatment session lasts 20 to 45 minutes. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may require multiple sessions over a five to seven-week span to achieve the maximum effect.

Do I need spinal decompression therapy?

As part of the diagnosis, your doctor will examine your medical history, X-rays, and any other imaging test. It is generally a safe and effective non-surgical solution for many people with back pain—in fact, it is often the more effective and predictable treatment approach than medication, injections, or surgery. Although it can be different for every patient, spinal decompression therapy usually relieves pain immediately, and most patients continue to improve with repeated sessions.

The following conditions may make you a candidate for spinal decompression:


Herniated or bulging discs


Worn spinal joints


Injured spinal nerve roots


Spinal stenosis


Facet Syndrome


Sciatica, a condition causing pain, tingling, and weakness radiating down the back of the leg
