Here at Spine & Disc Specialists in St. Louis, MO, we offer spinal decompression to help many men and women overcome chronic disc-related pressure and pain, even when traditional chiropractic adjustments, massage, physical therapy, and other common treatment options have failed to provide full relief. If you’ve been told you need surgery for a disc related issue, shoot us a call first to see if non-surgical spinal decompression therapy can help.
Spinal Decompression Therapy involves gently elongating the spine, using a computerized and FDA approved decopression table, with the goal of relieving back pain and/or leg pain. Decompression therapy is targeted to particular levels within either the Lumbar or Cervical Spine (lower back or neck).
This procedure is called nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy, as opposed to surgical spinal decompression such as laminectomy and microdiscectomy.
Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a type of spinal therapy that is typically used to treat disc herniations, disc bulges, and degenerative discs. The purpose of nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy is to create negative pressure in discs which will help retract herniated or bulging discs. This negative pressure also allows oxygen, water and other healing nutrient-rich substances into the disc, which is needed if the disc(s) are degenerative. As the disc herniations and/or bulges are retracted and the degenerative discs are hydrated, space becomes available for the exiting spinal nerves. This takes pressure off of the nerves and reduces back pain and pain or numbness shooting down the legs.
Spinal decompression therapy may be a great choice for those battling constant back pain. If you are seeking a gentle, safe way to find chiropractic relief without resorting to surgery, spinal decompression may be a great fit for you.
This treatment can be effective for several conditions, including sciatica pain and ruptured or herniated discs. It also helps with posterior facet syndrome, injured spinal roots, arthritis and spinal stenosis. Additionally, people who have had a failed back surgery in the past might find relief from spinal decompression.
