Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is one of the many therapies we offer at Northwest Wellness Center in Dublin, OH. It's a chiropractic treatment that's designed to reduce the pressure being placed on the spinal cord. Spinal decompression can also relieve back pain, improve posture, and provide many other benefits.

What Is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression involves using a motorized traction table to lift and stretch the spinal column. This treatment puts negative pressure on the discs in the spine. As the spine stretches, the discs retract, which can bring the spine back into alignment.

In addition to easing pressure and correcting alignment issues, spinal decompression can improve blood flow around the spinal discs. This allows more oxygen to flow to this area of the body. It can aid in tissue repair and help the body quickly heal from injuries.

What Can Be Treated with Spinal Decompression?

While spinal decompression can relieve pain, it can also treat several conditions that affect the discs in the spine. These conditions include:

Sciatica: When the spine is out of alignment, it can put pressure on the sciatic nerve. Spinal decompression can take pressure off of compressed nerves, immediately treating pain.

Bulging or herniated discs: The discs in the spine can be pushed out of place or crack, causing pain and irritation. Stretching the spine can help push the discs back into the proper position.

Back and neck pain: Spinal decompression is also an effective way to treat pain in the neck and lower back. Treatment can be targeted so that it focuses on the upper or lower portion of the spine.

In most cases, spinal decompression will be used by a chiropractor alongside other treatments, such as spinal manipulation or soft tissue therapy.
