Spinal decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression is a completely safe method for inducing your body’s natural healing mechanisms to work on bulged discs, herniated discs, and degenerated discs. Bulged discs can put pressure on nearby nerves, causing swelling, pain, and inflammation. By gently stretching your spine, pressure is released from the damaged disc and this allows it to settle back into its normal, natural position and also opens up the pathways for healing nutrients to access and enter into the disc. In this way, your body naturally repairs and restores the damaged disc.

How it works

The patient is fully clothed and lies either face down or face up on a special padded table with a strap tied snugly around the waist. A machine then begins slow cycles of decompression and relaxation for a duration of 30-45 minutes. The pressure is moderate and most patients experience relief with the stretching as it occurs. For best results, the patient should have this treatment done 20-28 times in 4-6 weeks.

A Healthy Alternative to Back Surgery

Spinal surgery is dreaded by most people. Few people feel comfortable taking a knife to their backbone, and that is totally understandable and quite reasonable. Yet chronic back pain can make people desperate for any sort of solution. Non-Surgical spinal decompression can be a great option for people who are at their wit’s end with pain and discomfort in their back or neck. Before going under the knife, consider this viable option for treatment of:

Chronic lower back pain – resulting from bulged discs, herniated discs, or degenerative discs.
Neck pain – from degenerative discs causing discomfort, pain, and limited motion.
Sciatica – pressure leading to irritation of the nerves traveling from the base of your spine down your legs, causing leg pain, discomfort, and inflammation.

Candidates for Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression

If you have been experiencing prolonged, chronic lower back pain, neck pain, or sciatica caused by a bulged disc, a herniated disc, or degenerated disc, you would probably benefit from non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

I've been injured in a car accident, what should I do?

Our Tacoma Chiropractic Center has special systems in place to help those who need immediate chiropractic attention due to car accidents.

Do not wait to get help.

The most common reason people experience back pain and back injuries is due to a car accident. The shock of whiplash can injure muscles and tendons and knock your spine out of proper alignment, causing major pain and discomfort for days, weeks, or even years to come. Please do not wait to get the care you need.

Auto insurance policies with Personal Injury Protection (PIP) cover medical care (including chiropractic care) whenever there is a car accident, regardless of who caused the accident. PIP is great because there is no co-pay nor deductible for the patient. If you don’t have PIP, we can still see you and help relieve your back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches or migraines resulting from an automobile accident.

I was injured at work and have a Worker's Compensation claim, can you help?
Most people are never trained how best to move their bodies in the workplace. Whether you’re sitting at a desk all day or engaged in heavy lifting, it is important to know how best to move and hold your body during work activities. We can teach you how to be more careful with your back when at work.

If you suffer a back injury at work, it is important to get treatment as quickly as possible in order to get you on the road to the recovery immediately. The longer you wait, the worse your problem will become, as your body will begin to overcompensate for the pain you’re experiencing by odd contortions of your body and by stressing a different set of muscles than normal.

Worker’s compensation claims are handled very expediently in our office. Give us a call if you have a claim number and we can see you right away! You really should not wait one more minute.
