Spinal Decompression FAQs

There are a number of reasons why people experience pain and discomfort in their backs. Back pain can be fixed with a variety of treatments, including spinal decompression. At Corrective Chiropractic in London, ON, our team is dedicated to using methods like spinal decompression to relieve pain. We provide patients with the relief they need while using the most non-invasive treatment modalities possible. Spinal decompression has been shown to provide effective treatment for multiple types of back pain injuries and medical conditions.


What Is It?

Spinal decompression therapy can be done using several different methods, but the goal is always the same. It works to stretch the spine and relieve pressure in any problem areas. Relieving this pressure allows nutrients to flow back to the discs in your spine and promote healing.


People who have a history of chronic pain in their backs know all too well about flare-ups. You may receive treatment only to find that your symptoms return several days later. Spinal decompression attacks chronic pain at its core. Our chiropractor works to identify and treat the source of the pain, not just the symptoms.

Decompression therapy can be used to treat a number of conditions. These back-pain conditions include spinal stenosis, injured and infected nerves in the spine, posterior facet syndrome, herniated and bulging disks, and sciatica. Our chiropractor recommends that anyone experiencing chronic back pain seek a diagnosis to determine what the cause of their pain is and how best to treat it.

One of the most common causes of back pain is herniated discs. These can be especially hard to treat. Once your discs have actually shifted, the body adapts to where they have moved. In many cases, this causes severe pain and discomfort, because the body will continue to adapt so that it can function. Spinal decompression helps shift herniated or bulging discs back into their correct positions. This provides long-term relief for people who experience chronic pain. Ongoing spinal decompression therapy has been proven to help discs stay in place.

Spinal decompression is a great alternative to back surgery. Surgery can have side effects, such as infections, blood clots, and other health complications. Spinal decompression is a non-invasive way to help with chronic pain. There are other non-invasive methods that can treat back pain, like physical therapy, acupuncture, and electrical stimulation. However, spinal decompression often has longer lasting results, and does more than just relieve pain. This method can prevent reoccurring issues by treating the root of the problem. Spinal decompression is a safe, drug-free, and effective treatment method.

Patients interested in spinal decompression therapy have to commit to the therapy. Chiropractic treatments often require more than one session to be effective. Our chiropractor recommends ongoing treatment and may give patients exercises to do at home.
