Spinal Decompression 

Chiropractor explaining Spinal Decompression

What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a technique that uses a traction table or motorized device to stretch the spine. The therapy creates negative pressure between discs that helps to re-position disc structures. The stretching action also stimulates the flow of healing nutrients within the spinal column. Spinal decompression therapy is often used to relieve back discomfort and nerve pain, instead of using prescription pain reliever or surgery. At Amazing Spine Care, you will find a chiropractor Jacksonville residents can rely on for spinal decompression and other chiropractic techniques for back and leg pain management.

What Conditions Can Spinal Decompression Help?

Spinal Decompression can be used as an effective treatment for a pinched nerve, bulging disc, herniated disc, degenerative disc conditions, sciatica and other problems. If you have been diagnosed with any of these problems, your Jacksonville chiro can provide spinal decompression to relieve your discomfort.

How Is Spinal Decompression Done?

For lower back pain therapy, the patient lies down on traction table fully clothed. Some types of decompression devices have the patient lie face down, while others have them lie face up. A harness is set at the level of the hips, which is attached to the lower table at the feet. The upper part of the table is fixed, but the lower part can slide back and forth to provide the traction or relaxation required for the technique. During the stretching operation, the patient feels no pain, although they will experience a feeling of stretching in the lower spine. Therapy is done in a number of sessions, which progressively provide more relief for the discomfort.
