If you are one of the 80% of American’s who suffer from chronic low back pain, you might have tried everything possible to find pain relief. Are you wondering who does spinal decompression therapy? Have you considered asking your chiropractor about decompression therapy? Spine decompression therapy, performed by a trained and licensed chiropractor, can prevent the need for surgery in many cases. Your chiropractor will take a full medical history, ask about your pain, perform a full exam and take x-rays or an MRI. Afterward, if the chiropractor determines that surgery is necessary, they will refer you to the appropriate specialist and work with them to help you during your recovery.

Non-Surgical decompression involves a special table and traction machine which gently stretches out the spine, releasing the pressure on the nerves. This gentle form of traction creates negative pressure on the discs within the spine, which allows bulging discs enough room to return to their normal place.

Is spine decompression therapy effective? This treatment works especially well for those suffering from bulging discs, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, accident victims, and those suffering from sciatica.

Your chiropractor is a specialist in the vertebrae of the spine, the muscles, and connective tissue surrounding the spine and other joints. Depending on the type of injury or problem you are experiencing, chances are that your chiropractor will also offer additional types of therapy to help your body heal and provide additional pain relief, as well as prevent possible damage to your spine in the future by offering advice about lifestyle, diet, and exercise programs suitable for your condition.
