What is Spinal Decompression Therapy
If you’ve been suffering from back pain for a while, Spinal Decompression may be right for you. At Allen Health Chiropractic, we use decompression therapy as a non-surgical method of relieving upper, mid, lower and neck pain. The spine is made up of dozens of bones and cushioned by a discs called intervertebral discs. Over time with use and poor posture the discs will degenerate which affects the intervertebral discs.
A nonsurgical type of motorized traction device that helps relieve back pain. The system works by gently stretching the spine using specific computer generated commands. The relief comes from pressure being relieved from the gel-like pads between the discs. The pressure relieved can relieve nerves that have been trapped. The main benefit comes from allowing nutrient rich fluids, water and oxygen to enter the area to begin the healing process.
Spinal decompression was designed and proven to be an effective way to relieve pain in those who suffer from neck and back pain. Decompression treatment takes approximately 30-45 minutes. Exact details are entered in to a computer and the program begins to relieve pressure.
What does Spinal Decompression Help With?
Spinal decompression relieves pressure and pain in the back and neck area. But it has been known to help with:
Degenerative Disc Disease
Worn Spinal Joints
Injured Spinal Nerves
The chiropractors are known to relieve your consistent pain through manipulation. This unique treatment does not involve any surgery or medication. The persistent lower back pain can make your life disruptive. The standard modes of treatment might not relieve you of the agony. Here nonsurgical spinal decompression treatment has been e revelation in the field of chiropractic therapy.
The chiropractor might stretch you on the traction table or such a motorized device to relieve you of the neck or back pain. This process is known to heal the pain considerably as the process targets a few specific vertebrae, and the whole spine is not subjected to pressure. Degenerative disc disease and sciatica pain can be relieved through spinal decomposition therapy.
Nonsurgical Spinal Decomposition
The first step involves changing you into comfortable clothes, preferably a harness around your pelvis region and your trunk. You are made to lie down either on your back or face down on a computer-operated motorized table. Your treatment may last thirty to forty minutes. You might be administered with the following processes either before or after your treatment:
- Ultrasound treatment that involves sound waves to generate heat and enhance healing.
- Hot / cold therapy involves usage of hot and cold compressions alternatively to heal pain.
- The use of electrical stimulation may cause certain muscles to contract and promote healing.
Benefits of Nonsurgical Decompression
Patients undergoing nonsurgical spinal decompression experience various benefits:
#1: Short Recovery Time
Spinal surgery can keep you tied to the bed for a long duration. Being bed-ridden can be of great discomfort for you. The recovery time for spine surgery is not specific and might vary. If you undertake the nonsurgical decompression, the recovery time is very short.
#2: Reduced Pain
The spinal decompression addresses the root cause of the backaches and promotes the healing of the spinal disk to quicken the reduction of backaches.
#3: Non-invasive Treatment
When you undergo nonsurgical spinal decompression, no needle or insertion is necessary. The treatment involves the manipulation of the spine by the chiropractors without any surgery.

What is the difference between traction and decompression?
Spinal cord can receive negative pressure to correct any misaligned vertebrate which is the most common amongst non surgical patients in Allen Tx. Critisizm surrounding traditional traction for lower back pain, lumbar spine medicine and chronic back pain still exists. The old fashioned meathod of traction can cause a multitude of associated issues including para-spinal contraction which actually causes an increase in intradiscal pressure on the spinal column.
Alternatively, spinal decompression (negative) pressure is a calculated increase of distraction forces on the spinal column. The advanced spinal decompression system gently applies exact distaction forces on the vertabrae to achieve the perfect negative pressure.
