How Does Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Work?


If you are one of the many people who suffer from back pain, you may be interested in learning about spinal decompression therapy. This treatment is designed to reduce pressure on the spinal cord , nerves and discs which can reduce or eliminate back pain. At Corrective Chiropractic, we provide effective and natural care for your spine and back pain. If you are wondering if spinal decompression in London, ON is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Batte.

What to Expect from Non-surgical Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive method of treatment that does not require surgery or medication. It works by gently stretching the spine to make more room for the spinal cord and nerves, thereby reducing pressure on the discs. This allows your back to heal naturally while improving flexibility, enabling you to move normally with a normal range of motion.

Decompression is a specific type of traction which gradually and gently stretches the spine, in order to decompress the discs. This differs from traditional traction in that decompression does not stimulate any contraction of the muscles while being performed. This allows a gentle vacuum (lower pressure) to form in the disc, causing the disc to ‘suck’ in fluid and nutrients thereby taking pressure off of the spinal cord and nerves, allowing them to heal. This will make it easier for your body to repair and realign the spine.

How Safe is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is an effective alternative to surgery and has little to no risks. No drugs are used during this procedure. That means you can avoid the side effects associated with certain medications. While this treatment is safe, you should never attempt it without consulting a chiropractor who is certified in spinal decompression. If you are interested in learning more about this treatment, schedule an appointment with our chiropractor.
