Spinal Decompression Q&A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy is a nonsurgical treatment that focuses on stretching your spine to relieve back pain and reduce inflammation from a herniated disc.

The team at Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center facilitates a deep stretch of your spine using a traction table. Stretching creates a negative pressure in the spine to restore the position of the protective discs that sit between your vertebrae.

Spinal decompression is an effective therapy for relieving the pain of:

  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease

Stretching takes the pressure off nearby nerves that causes inflammation, pain, and loss of mobility in your lower back.

What is involved in spinal decompression?

During your spinal decompression therapy session, you lie on a traction table. The Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center team fits a harness around your body.

While you’re in the harness, the table moves slowly to gently stretch and relax your spine. You can expect to feel the deep stretch and some relief from your pain as your spinal discs decompress.

A therapy session typically lasts about 30 minutes, and your provider can adjust your therapy if you feel any discomfort.

How often do I need decompression therapy?

Depending on your condition, you might need a series of decompression treatments over the course of several weeks to achieve maximum pain relief.

The Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center team typically recommends 12-20 sessions over the course of 4-6 weeks to restore the health of your spine and optimize your long-term pain relief.

What are the benefits of spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is highly effective at relieving chronic pain and improving the overall health and function of your spine.

In many cases, the Gould Chiropractic and Laser Pain Center team can use spinal decompression therapy and other chiropractic techniques to reduce your need for surgery.

By providing long-term pain relief, decompression therapy can also reduce your reliance on pain-relieving medications.

The team can also combine spinal decompression therapy with laser therapy to help irritated, inflamed nerves heal from the inside out.
