The Science of Back Decompression

Back decompression therapy began years ago when NASA observed that their astronauts experienced significant back pain relief in anti-gravity environments. Spinal decompression therapy technology involves using a motorized device or traction table to gently stretch your spine. It is often used as part of a treatment plan to relieve back or leg pain due to spinal injuries.

Decompression uses traction to create negative pressure on your spine. This pressure repositions your disc material and facilitates delivery of healing nutrients to the disc. During spinal decompression, you will be harnessed safely around the hips. The upper part of the traction table stays in a fixed position, and the lower part of the traction table glides back and forth. That movement provides relaxation and pain-relieving results.

Our Spinal Decompression Chiropractor Gets the Kinks Out

Our dedicated spinal decompression chiropractor typically recommends mechanical traction for patients who need back pain relief from conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, or back pain caused by extended sitting or standing. We also provide other on-site chiropractic services that can be employed with spinal decompression therapy to optimize your healing potential, including manual spinal manipulations, cryotherapy, therapeutic massage, and interferential electrical stimulation.

During your spinal adjustment, gentle force is applied to properly align the elements of your spine and help relieve trigger-point pressure. Cryotherapy involves numbing sore muscles with applications of cold compresses that constricts capillaries and blood vessels so that swelling and elevated skin temperature due to inflammation decreases. It also stimulates release of endorphins and inhibits activity of pain signals to the brain.

Therapeutic massage helps relax sore or tired muscles and stimulates blood flow, which accelerates healing and helps to reduce pain. Interferential electrical stimulation is accomplished with our state-of-the-art equipment that sends electrical impulses directly to the affected area, increasing endorphin secretions to help manage pain.
