Treating Back Pain with Nonsurgical Decompression Therapy

Decompression milpitas

Decompression is a powerful force for your health

Nonsurgical spinal decompression is a mouthful of a term that generally brings to mind thoughts of surgery or being strapped to a scary table. The truth is, spinal decompression is an all-star modality that helps people naturally manage back pain related to the following conditions: 

  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Facet joint syndrome

And while you can actually create a decompressive effect yourself by performing certain stretches (child’s pose for example), instrument-assisted decompression increases the benefit. Read on to find out how.

How nonsurgical decompression works

Yes, you are strapped to a table, but there is nothing scary about it! Depending on your condition, you are placed on the table on your belly or your back, and harnesses are gently secured around your torso and pelvis to keep you in place. We then use a computer to create motorized traction that gently stretches the spine for a period of 30-45 minutes. The goal is to: 

  • Decrease intervertebral pressure
  • Allow for rehydration of embattled intervertebral discs
  • Increase circulation to the injurious region 
  • Support more efficient healing of spinal injuries

Nonsurgical spinal decompression in Milpitas

Decompression is just one of the many modalities we use to help people mitigate the toll of chronic back pain. To find out if you are a good candidate for nonsurgical decompression treatment, give our office in Milpitas a call to schedule an appointment today.
