Disc Decompression Therapy
Disc Decompression Therapy
Pain associated with a herniated disc is usually the result of gradual wear and tear to the spine’s outer layer. The disc degenerates to a point where the soft jelly-like cushions between each vertebrae, known as the nucleus pulposus, pushes out it’s casing, causing a bulged disc. The spine houses the body’s nervous system, so a bulging disc can send pain to any area of your body. For those suffering a herniated disc, motions such as bending, walking, and twisting may become excruciating. Pain can shoot through legs, arms, or neck causing severe impact to normal daily life and movement. Some of the leading causes of a bulging or degenerated disc include:
- Repetitive-stress syndrome
- Recent car injury
- Improper lifting practices
- Sports injury or awkward fall

Does disc decompression therapy help herniated discs?
Chiropractic disc decompression therapy is a non-surgical, herniated disc treatment program that demonstrates resounding results for relieving pain. Herniated discs are usually caused by structural stress on the disc. Our decompression therapy accelerates the recovery time for herniated discs by pinpointing removing the stress on the disc. This is the first step in the long-term healing of a disc herniation. Most other clinics stop at this point. We continue to fix the ongoing structural stress. Let our doctors determine if disc decompression therapy is right for you.
Can spinal decompression therapy cause damage?
As with any therapy, there are risks involved. When compared to spine surgery, however, the risks are very low. While spinal decompression therapy isn’t as invasive as surgery options, there may be some risks involved. People often require X-rays or an MRI to find out if non-surgical spinal decompression is right for them. Disc decompression is not indicated for: Pregnant woman due to abdominal pressure, People with severe nerve damage, patients with spinal instability (severe degeneration of the spine or osteoporosis), some spine surgery cases.
Is it good to decompress your spine?
We use decompression not as a primary tool but as a secondary one. It does provide short-term relief which allows us to go in and fix the underlying cause. Unfortunately, many health care providers are using this as a sole, stand-alone treatment. That is not our approach.
How long does it take for spinal decompression to work?
This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes per session. Some patients notice an improvement after their very first session. Often times there are a series of sessions involved.
