Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression at Spinal Correction Centers is a nonsurgical method to ease pain associated with spinal conditions like herniated discs and pinched nerves. Disc decompression relieves chronic back pain naturally, which is why many patients choose this method.

What are the benefits of spinal decompression?

The benefits of undergoing spinal decompression at Spinal Correction Centers include:

  • Reduced back pain
  • Less numbness, burning, or tingling
  • Less radiating pain
  • Improved range of motion 
  • Better mobility 
  • Less stiffness
  • Increased strength
  • Better quality of life

Nonsurgical spinal decompression can dramatically improve your quality of life without surgery or harsh medications. The procedure can treat herniated discs, pinched nerves, or complications associated with these conditions.

Is nonsurgical spinal decompression right for me?

Your Spinal Correction Centers provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for spinal decompression after discussing your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle habits with you. 

They also complete a physical exam, a neurological exam if needed, and possibly X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or another imaging procedure.

What should I expect during my treatment?

During nonsurgical spinal decompression, you relax on a comfortable DRX9000® chiropractic table. The table slowly stretches tissues in your spine to make more space for compressed discs, thereby reducing pinched nerves and allowing herniated discs to slide back into place. 

This treatment alleviates discomfort without medication or surgery, and there’s no downtime afterward. Spinal decompression treatments generally last no more than 60 minutes, although every patient’s condition and needs are different.

Spinal Correction Centers offers manipulation under anesthesia if you’d like to feel more comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. However, if you choose this method, you must have a family member or friend drive you home afterward. 

How often do I need spinal decompression?

You may need multiple spinal decompression treatments, depending on your needs. Your chiropractor tailors each treatment plan to give you the best results. 

In addition to spinal decompression, they may recommend chiropractic adjustments, functional rehabilitation, massage therapy, physical therapy, ice or heat packs, or other treatments that enhance musculoskeletal structure and function and reduce your risk of future problems.
