What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is also known as traction therapy. This is a type of treatment that is used to treat disc injuries, such as herniated discs and bulging discs. In both of these cases, these disc injuries lead to the compression of surrounding nerves and tissues around the spine. These discs can retract to their natural position using negative pressure created during spinal decompression therapy.

Will Spinal Decompression Hurt?

Spinal decompression therapy does not hurt, and it can be quite relaxing for some people. During the therapy, someone lays face down or face up on a traction table. A chiropractor will then strap the person in, and use a computer to calibrate how far apart to gently pull their spine. This can help the person feel instant relief as the bulging discs and herniated discs are popped back into place. To be fully effective, our chiropractor might also recommend other treatments besides spinal decompression, such as massage therapy, to help you find the most pain relief.
