What Can a Chiropractor Treat with Spinal Decompression?

What Is Spinal Decompression Used to Treat?

Spinal decompression is commonly provided by chiropractors. As the name suggests, spinal decompression therapy helps to stretch or decompress the spine without the need for surgery, which can be costly and often involves a difficult and lengthy recovery. This therapy utilizes a traction table (it is sometimes known as back traction) or similar device to decompress your spine and reduce pain in your legs or back. Decompressing your spine can also help certain injuries properly heal by promoting circulation.

Conditions Treated by Spinal Decompression

The conditions that spinal decompression therapy treats include:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Injured spinal nerve roots

Patients who have experienced successful spinal decompression may be able to reduce pain and their reliance on medication. In fact, spinal decompression has a successful pain-reduction rate of 70% and 90%.

When used for healing purposes, spinal decompression may be combined with other therapies such as class four therapeutic cold laser or others of our holistic therapies including chiropractic, emotional, and or nutritional therapies. You can also perform certain exercises or stretches to help keep your spine decompressed after a session.

While spinal decompression therapy can provide relief for back pain, it's not right for everyone. For example, pregnancy and obesity are two conditions that prevent effective use of this therapy. This type of treatment may not be for you if you're of advanced age, have osteoporosis, or suffer from other musculoskeletal conditions or injuries. You should always consult with a professional to determine if spinal decompression therapy is right for you.
