Spinal Decompression

Back and neck pain are two of the most commonly reported issues that cause people to miss work. Spinal decompression is a popular treatment that chiropractors use to re-align the spine and take pressure off the small fluid-filled disks that separate the vertebrae. Once the pressure has been alleviated, the pain and discomfort associated with the compressed vertebrae and herniated discs gradually dissipates.


How Spinal Decompression Works

Spinal decompression uses the body's own weight to pull the head and shoulders toward the ground. The patient lies on an inversion table. Once they are secure, the end of the table with the head and shoulders is gradually lowered, allowing gravity to gently pull the body's weight toward the ground. Remaining in this position for a few minutes will allow the bones and other connective tissues to shift, relieving the pressure that was placed on the discs and nerves.

Chiropractic Care and Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression fits in well with chiropractic care. Chiropractors work to restore the body's natural balance through the use of chiropractic adjustments. When the vertebrae shift and begin to cause damage to the fluid-filled discs that lie between them, spinal decompression can be used to gently shift the bones back into place. Combining these treatment options with deep tissue massage and physical therapy, allows your chiropractor to create a treatment plan that not only addresses the cause but encourages healing and recovery.


Spinal compression can be used to treat many different conditions associated with neck and back pain. These conditions include:

  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Sciatica

With regular visits to your chiropractor, spinal decompression and chiropractic adjustments can speed up the healing process for many injuries. Spinal decompression also works by releasing tension in the muscles that support the spine and body's core. Giving these muscles a chance to relax allows for increased blood flow to the area which aids in the healing process.
