What Is Spinal Decompression?

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is a pain relief option that involves slowly stretching your spine. The main goal is to relieve the pressure on any bulging or herniated discs, thereby relieving the pain associated with the compression. This also allows the compressed areas of your spine to heal more rapidly, allowing you to get back to your pain-free daily living as quickly as possible – all without surgical intervention.

Injured spinal joints or spinal joints that are misaligned cause the discs to wear out, collapse and dehydrate over time. You become more prone to herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and osteoarthritis as a result. This wearing process can place pressure on the spinal nerves and intervertebral discs, causing back pain and neck pain. Spinal decompression therapy gently eases pressure on the discs and nerves, allowing fluids to re-hydrate the injured disc with water, oxygen, and nutrients. Once re-hydrated, the spinal disc can be begin to repair itself. This is just one of several different treatment options we use at Tankersley Chiropractic. We also utilize spinal manipulations or adjustments, intersegmental traction and acupuncture to correct spinal misalignments, reduce your pain and make life much easier to live.
