Spinal Decompression

Interested in Spinal Decompression?

Gravity is not kind. It pulls on your body from the time you are born. This can wear and break down even the healthiest of bodies but we have a solution. Our manual spinal decompression services work with your spine and surrounding muscles to help relieve the pressure on the spinal discs.

Spinal discs are in the spine and act as cushions between each of the vertebrae. The discs can get compressed, causing bulging and ruptures. Taking care of the spine with spinal decompression can help aid with preventing bulging and ruptured discs, as well as provide relief for already compressed or injured discs. Also, things such as heavy lifting, aging, and poor posture can cause disc issues.

Spinal decompression is a form of traction that takes pressure off the spine by allowing the discs and all the joints in the area being decompressed to return to a more normal state, and providing relief of symptoms. This can be done with mechanical devices as well as the hands. This is very natural and done without any surgery. Many times, patients will have arm and leg pain that is associated with a compressed disc in the spine. In short, spinal decompression provides relief from disc, and in some cases joint, injuries.

How long do I have to do treatments?

There is no set answer for any patient. Some of our treatment takes just a few visits and others take a longer time. We work with each person on an individual basis. Our lives are busy, between work and personal schedules, it’s hard to find the time to take care of yourself. However, ignoring your spinal issues will not make them go away. If you choose to ignore your spinal issues, they will in fact become worse. Spine issues do not fix themselves, often, they become much worse.

How much does Spinal Decompression cost?

Spinal decompression is typically covered by your health insurance, and of course, we will discuss the costs of any of our treatments with you before treatment begins. If you are concerned about cost, schedule an appointment and we will be happy to go over any concerns you may have.
