Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a nonsurgical and drug-free treatment for neck pain, back pain, and pain that radiates into the arms and legs. This type of therapy involves stretching your spine in a controlled manner on a motorized decompression table. The table gently pulls on your spine (traction), which creates space in between your vertebrae. 

Spinal decompression not only relieves pain, but it creates an optimal environment for your spinal disc to heal. The traction produces a vacuum-like effect in the disc so that herniated material gets sucked back in.

If you have a spinal disc problem that causes pain, numbness, and tingling, you don’t have to choose between living with the pain and getting surgery. Dr. Gordon, DC, and the experts at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine have used spinal decompression therapy to help many patients avoid back surgery and stop taking pain medications. 

What does spinal decompression therapy treat?

Spinal decompression therapy relieves pain by correcting problems with your spinal discs. The team at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine uses spinal decompression to help men and women find relief from a range of conditions, including:

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Facet syndrome

These conditions may lead to lower back pain, neck pain, and pain, numbness, and tingling that radiates down your arm or leg. 

How effective is spinal decompression therapy?

Though every patient is different and it’s impossible to predict the outcome of a treatment, the team at Corner Canyon Pain and Medicine has helped patients achieve overwhelming success with spinal decompression therapy. Over the course of eight years, more than 90% of men and women who received spinal decompression therapy experienced excellent results. 

What should I expect from spinal decompression therapy?

During spinal decompression therapy, you remain clothed just as you would for chiropractic treatment. You lie on the decompression table, and your provider attaches a harness to your hips and feet. The motorized table slides back and forth to provide the precise level of traction and relaxation you need.

Spinal decompression isn’t painful. In fact, many people find it so relaxing that they fall asleep during treatment. The number of treatments you need depends on the type and severity of your condition.
