Anatomy Affected by Spinal Decompression: Targeting the Source of Your Pain

Spinal Decompression primarily focuses on the structures within your spine, particularly the intervertebral discs. These gel-like cushions between your vertebrae can become compressed, leading to pain, nerve irritation, and limited mobility. Spinal Decompression aims to address the following areas:

Intervertebral Discs

The treatment gently stretches and decompresses the discs, creating negative pressure within them. This negative pressure promotes the retraction of herniated or bulging discs, relieving pressure on surrounding nerves.

Spinal Joints

Spinal Decompression also helps alleviate pressure on the joints of the spine, reducing pain and inflammation associated with conditions such as degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis.

Nerve Roots

By reducing compression on the nerve roots, Spinal Decompression can alleviate radiating pain, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms associated with conditions like sciatica.

What Does Spinal Decompression Feel Like?: A Comfortable and Relaxing Experience

During Spinal Decompression sessions, you will lie comfortably on a specialized table. Here’s what you can expect from the experience:

  • Non-Invasive and Painless: Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive procedure that typically does not involve any pain or discomfort. Many patients find the treatment to be gentle and relaxing.
  • Controlled Traction: The table will apply a gentle pulling force to your spine, creating a controlled traction. This traction is specifically designed to target the affected area and relieve pressure on the discs and nerves.
  • Customized Treatment: Our chiropractors will customize the settings of the Spinal Decompression table to suit your specific needs. They will carefully monitor your response and make adjustments as necessary throughout the session.
  • Relief and Relaxation: As the treatment progresses, you may experience a soothing sensation as the pressure on your spine is gradually alleviated. Some patients even report a sense of relaxation during the sessions.

Conditions Helped by Spinal Decompression: Promoting Healing and Pain Relief

Spinal Decompression can be beneficial for a variety of spinal conditions, including:

Herniated or Bulging Discs

Spinal Decompression helps retract the herniated or bulging disc material, reducing pressure on the nerves and providing relief from associated pain, numbness, and tingling.

Degenerative Disc Disease

By decompressing the spinal discs, Spinal Decompression can improve hydration and nutrient exchange within the discs, promoting their health and reducing pain.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal Decompression can create space within the spinal canal, relieving pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots and alleviating symptoms such as pain, weakness, and difficulty walking.


The decompression effect of Spinal Decompression can relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve, reducing pain, numbness, and tingling that radiates down the leg.

Chronic Back or Neck Pain

Spinal Decompression is an effective treatment option for chronic pain conditions in the back or neck, providing long-lasting relief and improved quality of life.

Our experienced chiropractors will evaluate your condition, conduct a thorough examination, and discuss your medical history to determine if Spinal Decompression is a suitable treatment option for you.
