What Is Spinal Decompression?

Your chiropractor may recommend that you undergo spinal decompression in Prince William County for chiropractic treatment of a herniated disc or other misalignment of the spine or joints. Spinal decompression therapy is a safe, gentle form of spinal manipulation that realigns the spinal column, relieves pain, and restores range of motion in joints.

Spinal decompression is performed using a motorized table, or traction device. Prior to performing this chiropractic therapy, your chiropractor will secure you to the table to maintain your safety and comfort. The table will then tilt very slowly and gradually. As it tilts, it gently stretches your spine, allowing it to shift back into alignment.

The majority of patients report almost immediate relief from mild lower back problems and neck injuries after spinal decompression. Many patients experience relief from neck and back pain after six to ten treatments. If you suffer from chronic or severe back pain, your chiropractor may combine spinal decompression therapy with other forms of chiropractic care to provide you with a comprehensive back pain solution.
