Spinal Decompression

Is Spinal Decompression a Good Fit for You?


If you've been researching chiropractic care, it's likely that you've learned a bit about spinal decompression. Many people who struggle with back pain choose to spinal decompression as a non-surgical, holistic option for relief. At Achieve Health And Wellness in Bolingbrook, our chiropractor will work with you to decide if spinal decompression is a good fit for your spinal health needs. 

Is Spinal Decompression a Good Fit for You?

What Is Spinal Decompression?

There are many factors that can cause our spines to become compressed. Stress, spending a lot of time sitting at a desk or driving, age, and even exercise can all cause the vertebrae in the spine to push together in an unnatural way. Non-surgical spinal decompression can be a safe, effective option for people who have a compressed spine and are struggling with back pain. 

Non-surgical spinal decompression utilizes a motorized traction that slowly and gently stretches and decompresses the spine. This can help relieve pain and can take pressure off of pinched or compressed nerves in your spine. Treatments typically last about 45 minutes, and take place over the course of 7 weeks. Your treatment time may be longer or shorter depending on your personal needs.

What Conditions Does Spinal Decompression Treat?

Spinal decompression can be very helpful for people who are suffering from herniated or bulging discs. When a disc bulges or herniates, the vertebrae above the disc is typically putting pressure on the disc, causing the soft material within the disc to move in a harmful way. When the spine is decompressed, the soft material of the disc has an opportunity to return to its original position.

Spinal decompression is also helpful for sciatica. Sciatica is the name for a number of conditions that are caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica symptoms can include pain in the lower back that extends down the side and/or back of one leg, numbness or tingling down the leg, and leg weakness. Often, sciatica is caused by an untreated herniated or bulging disc, as the misplaced disc material puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. Spinal decompression can relieve sciatica by taking the pressure off of the sciatic nerve. 

These are only some of the conditions that are relieved by spinal decompression. This treatment is often used in combination with physical therapy (and other chiropractic treatment modalities) to treat a variety of spinal health conditions.
