Spinal Decompression Q&A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a holistic treatment for back and neck pain caused by misalignment or spinal compression. The Body Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Center specialists use this treatment to gently stretch your spine and reduce the source of the discomfort. 

What are the benefits of spinal decompression?

Some of the main benefits associated with spinal decompression at Body Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Center include:

  • Reduced back and neck pain
  • Less numbness, tinging, or burning discomfort
  • Easier mobility 
  • Improved range of motion
  • Minimized stiffness and swelling
  • Reduced nerve pressure
  • Better overall quality of life

Spinal decompression is a relaxing, painless procedure that may reduce your need to take pain medicine or undergo surgery. It offers dramatic relief from pain caused by spine problems. 

Is spinal decompression right for me?

The main reasons for spinal decompression are neck and back pain due to problems with your spine. You might have poor posture, spine misalignment, a ruptured disc, or a pinched nerve. If you’d like to reduce pain naturally, spinal decompression may be for you.

To know for sure, Dr. Taher reviews your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms. He completes a physical exam and may order blood tests, nerve testing, X-rays, an MRI, a CT scan, or another imaging procedure. 

What should I expect during my treatment?

During spinal decompression at Body Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Center, you lie on your back on a specialized decompression table. A machine slowly stretches your extremities, which creates a vacuum along the soft discs in your spine to relieve spinal compression and pressure. The treatment is fast and virtually painless but offers highly effective pain-relieving results.

What happens after spinal decompression?

You might notice immediate relief after spinal decompression, with continued improvements in how you feel over time. 

Dr. Taher may recommend additional treatments, such as chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, home remedies, or rehabilitation exercises and stretches. He personalizes each back or neck pain treatment to offer exceptional, long-lasting results.
