Is Spinal Decompression a Good Fit for You?
A common form of chiropractic care is spinal decompression. You may be wondering if it is a good option for you, though. If you have back pain and would prefer a non-surgical, holistic form of relief, spinal decompression may be just what you are looking for.
Our outstanding doctor at Achieve Health and Wellness can provide you with a consultation about the back pain services that we offer, then perform an examination to get to the root cause of the pain. From there, Dr. Fisher will determine if spinal decompression is the best method of treatment for your condition.
What is Spinal Decompression?
To understand spinal decompression, it’s best to first consider what it is that leads to spinal compression, to begin with. There are quite a few factors that can cause spinal compression. These include spending a lot of time driving or sitting at a desk, stress, age, and certain forms of exercise.
All of these factors can cause the spinal vertebrae to compress in an unnatural way. Spinal decompression provides an effective and safe alternative to surgery for those struggling with back pain due to a compressed spine.
Spinal decompression involves the use of a motorized traction device that gently and slowly decompresses and stretches the spine. This is excellent for pain relief and taking pressure off compressed or pinched nerves. You can expect the treatment to involve multiple 45-minute sessions and can generally be completed within 7 weeks. The exact length of time will depend on your specific needs.
What Conditions Does Spinal Decompression Treat?
If you have a herniated or bulging disc, spinal decompression may be the right choice. A herniation or bulging causes the vertebrae above the disc to put pressure on the disc. This causes the soft material within the disc to shift in a painful and harmful way. With spinal decompression, the soft material is able to return to its original position.
For those with sciatica, spinal decompression can be a wonderful solution. There are a number of conditions that fall under the umbrella of “sciatica” that are all caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. The symptoms someone suffering from sciatica can expect include numbness or tingling down a leg or both legs, weak legs, and lower back pain. The cause of sciatica is generally an untreated bulging or herniated disc. This is because the misplaced disc material puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. By taking pressure off of the sciatic nerve, spinal decompression can relieve sciatica.
Often, patients receive spinal decompression in conjunction with other chiropractic treatments and possibly physical therapy.

Another treatment option for back pain—along with neck pain, headaches, and more—is spinal adjustments. These help to address the underlying problems that are leading to pain in the first place, while also providing relief. Dr. Fisher will ensure the pain doesn’t just go away but doesn’t return.
Achieve Health and Wellness offers outstanding spinal adjustment services that provide both long-term relief and quick pain support.
Do I Need an Adjustment?
In order to determine whether you need a spinal adjustment or decompression, you’ll first need to schedule an appointment with Achieve Health and Wellness. During this appointment, we’ll provide you with a consultation with Dr. Fisher and an examination to get to the root of the problem.
Your examination at Achieve will include a physical exam and possibly x-rays. Once Dr. Fisher has finished the examination, he will put together a treatment plan that is right for you. This may include spinal decompression, physical therapy, spinal adjustments, laser therapy, and/or corrective exercises.
How Do Spinal Adjustments Work?
There are a lot of nerve centers in the spine. A misalignment can lead to a whole host of problems, along with pain. Whether the alignment issue is due to a bulging disc, slipped disc, injury, or anything else, performing even the simplest daily activity can be that much harder. A spinal injury can also lead to back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and more.
In order to address the discomfort, pain, and other problems, your chiropractor may opt for a spinal adjustment. This can be performed in a few different ways.
Dr. Fisher at Achieve Health and Wellness uses quick jolts on your joints with either his hands or a specialized tool. He may instead decide that spinal decompression is the right option, though.
Spinal adjustments are usually painless and non-invasive. With that said, you may experience soreness as the body adjusts.
