Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Treatment From Our Vancouver Chiropractor

Back pain limits your ability to engage in normal activities. It may limit your mobility or it may prevent you from engaging with your loved ones. Depending on the situation, it may even limit your career opportunities. Spinal decompression helps reduce your discomfort by treating the cause of your pain.

What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a natural and non-surgical way to stretch the spine. It alleviates pain by reducing the pressure on your spinal discs. The gentle stretches positions the spine in the correct way. The result is a proper spinal function so that your spinal discs do not have undue pressure.

When your spinal discs no longer have the extra pressure, a bulging disc is able to retract. Since a bulging disc puts pressure on your nerves and causes physical pain, you will notice a reduced feeling of pain. It helps your spine and back heal.

How Our Chiropractor Performs Decompression Therapy

In our clinic, we may suggest decompression therapy for back pain relief. Depending on the situation, we use appropriate tools to assist with the process. We may use a manual tool or a table to help stretch out your back and improve the alignment of your spine. Our chiropractor evaluates your health and needs before suggesting a strategy for the process.

We use gentle pressure to help with the stretch. We also recognize that your health plays a role in the proper treatment process. We do not recommend the treatment for every situation. For example, we may suggest alternative treatments for back pain in pregnant women when compared to others. We also take your condition into account when developing a treatment plan. You want to have the right strategy based on your situation to reach your health goals.

What We Treat With Back Decompression

In our clinic, we treat a variety of concerns with back decompression. The treatments depend on your needs, so we develop a personalized plan for your back pain. Common concerns we treat with decompression therapy include:
