Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression, or nonsurgical decompression therapy, helps relieve spine-related pain in your back or legs. This type of traction therapy is an alternative to surgery or medication for:

  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Degenerated discs


How is spinal decompression therapy beneficial?

Spinal decompression therapy works to restore the natural balance in your spine rather than just treating your symptoms.

With an 86% success rate, spinal decompression therapy can permanently eliminate your pain. That's far preferable to masking it with drugs or wasting weeks or even months recovering from an invasive surgical procedure.

Since spinal decompression therapy enhances your body’s healing capacity, it’s common to feel immediate relief within two visits.  

How does spinal decompression therapy work?

The providers at Worley Chiropractic Clinic work to relieve your pain by stretching your spine, which relieves the pressure on the parts of your spine causing your chronic pain. The procedure also increases circulation to your damaged discs, initiating your body’s natural healing process.

During the spinal decompression session, you lie fully clothed on a motorized table. Dr. Worley places a harness around your hips, which attaches to the table's lower-most portion. While the table's upper-most part remains fixed, the lower part moves back and forth. That motion provides traction, helps you relax, and alleviates your back pain.

Pain shouldn't be a problem during or after the decompression therapy, although you might feel the stretch in your spine.

Is spinal decompression therapy right for you?

Of all available medical procedures, spinal decompression is probably the most gentle and least invasive. Whether you’re suffering from sciatica, lower back pain, or neck pain, call Worley Chiropractic Clinic or schedule an appointment online to see if spinal decompression therapy is right for you.
