Spinal decompression is a non-surgical chiropractic treatment to treat many spinal ailments. It may even prevent the necessity for back surgery for people with herniated discs, sciatica and back pain.

A spinal disc is a soft cushion that is located between each vertebra along the spine. The disc has a soft center and a harder outer covering. When there is a crack in the outer covering, a bit of the soft center can leak out. This may result in the nearby nerves being irritated which is very painful and may result in numbness in an arm or leg.

If the disc is in the lower back, it could put pressure on the sciatic nerve causing pain and numbness in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.

The Treatment

Chiropractic doctors use a non-invasive, safe treatment called spinal decompression. This treatment may help return a herniated disc to its correct place between the spinal bones. This relieves the pressure on nerves and stops the pain. It may also prevent future problems.

Spinal decompression is a traction-based treatment for bulging discs in the lower back and neck and the associated conditions. People who have back, neck, leg or arm pain may not realize the cause is in their spine. Our doctors of chiropractic can examine all of your symptoms and determine if a ruptured disc is causing your pain. Some of the problems spinal decompression treats are:

  • Spinal stenosis – the narrowing of the spaces in the backbone, which puts pressure on the nerves and spinal cord
  • Facet syndrome – inflammation of cervical or lumbar facet joints. It may mimic symptoms of a herniated disc, a fracture, a deep infection or a torn muscle
  • Foraminal compression – compression of a spinal nerve at the point it leaves the spinal canal
  • Failed or previous spinal surgery – in some cases, back surgery may not solve the problem
  • Protruding discs – also called slipped disc

One of the most common causes of acute lower back pain is a strained ligament or muscle. This may happen when you lift a heavy object, do a sudden movement while exercising or participating in a sport.

Upper back pain is often caused by weak upper-back muscles, auto injuries or sports injuries. This type of upper back pain may be cured by spinal decompression or other chiropractic treatments.

Spinal decompression is becoming popular as an alternative to spine surgery. There has been extensive research that shows it is safe and effective. It has provided relief for people who have suffered extreme back pain for years.

If you have back problems, spinal decompression may save you from herniated disc surgery, spinal fusion surgery or neck disc surgery.
