Spinal Decompression Therapy Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

During spinal decompression, the team at White Integrated Health Clinics stretches your spine using a specialized decompression table. 

The procedure gently stretches spinal tissues to alter the force and position of your spine, taking pressure off spinal discs to relieve pain caused by nerve pressure. Spinal decompression promotes healing in addition to pain relief. 

Is spinal decompression right for me?

You might be a good candidate for spinal decompression if you experience one or more of the following conditions:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Sciatica pain
  • Shooting pain
  • Leg pain
  • Tingling pain
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Worn spinal joints
  • Diseased or injured nerve roots

To find out if computerized spinal decompression therapy is right for you, the team at White Integrated Health Clinics reviews your symptoms and medical history. They complete a physical examination and may recommend you undergo blood tests, nerve studies, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or other imaging procedures. 

How does spinal decompression therapy work?

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy works by creating negative disc pressure. Doing so pulls bulging or herniated disc material back into the disc and fosters a better healing environment for pain reduction.

What happens during spinal decompression therapy?

During non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, you lie down on a comfortable, moveable, motorized table while your provider stretches your spine. 

For treatment of your low back, they place a harness around your hips, which attaches to the lower part of the decompression table. While the upper part of the table remains fixed in place, the lower part moves to provide traction and stretching.

For your neck, they would place a harness around your head. The table remains fixed in place and the headpiece is pulled gently to create decompression to the spinal discs in your neck. 

Although you can feel your spine stretching, spinal decompression therapy isn’t painful. Each procedure usually lasts 15-30 minutes.

What should I expect after my treatment?

After spinal decompression therapy, you may feel better right away with continued improvements in pain reduction over time. Your healthcare provider may recommend a series of treatments spaced apart over a few weeks or months. 

They might suggest you undergo additional holistic pain treatments, such as regenerative cell therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, cryotherapy, cold laser therapy, or trigger point injections to achieve the best results.

Don’t live with back or neck pain, or undergo invasive surgery, when simple pain-relieving solutions are within reach at White Integrated Health Clinics. Call the office to schedule an appointment, or book one online today to find out if spinal decompression therapy is right for you.
