Spinal Decompression Therapy Q&A

What is spinal decompression therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment option for back or neck pain. It involves gently stretching your spine to ease pressure on the nerves causing your pain.

You may develop neck or back pain from any number of causes. However, irritation or compression of the spinal nerves as they exit the spine is a common cause of chronic pain. 

Dr. Park provides spinal decompression therapy to change the position of your spine, easing the compression or pinching that’s causing your pain. Repositioning your spine also improves the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the irritated, inflamed, and damaged tissue, supporting the natural healing process that leads to long-term results.

Am I a candidate for spinal decompression therapy?

Dr. Park conducts a comprehensive physical exam when you come in with concerns about pain to determine what treatment makes the best choice for you. You may be a candidate for spinal decompression therapy if you have neck or back pain from:

  • Bulging or herniated disc
  • Degenerative disc disease (DDD)
  • Facet joint syndrome — worn spine joints
  • Radiculopathy — pinched spinal nerve
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis — narrowing of the spinal canal

Dr. Park takes a holistic approach to care and may incorporate other treatments into your plan based on your health needs. 

Park Brothers Pain Clinic offers many innovative and alternative therapies to promote health and healing, including chiropractic care, acupuncture, cupping therapy, and cold laser therapy. 

What happens during spinal decompression therapy?

Dr. Park customizes your spinal decompression therapy based on your needs. For back pain, as an example, during treatment, you lie on the therapy table, and Dr. Park wraps a harness around your pelvis and a harness around the trunk of your body. 

The harness gently tugs on your upper and lower body, stretching the spine. Your spinal decompression therapy may take up to 45 minutes. 

There’s no downtime after your session, and you can resume your usual activities. Dr. Park may recommend 20 or more treatments over five to seven weeks to gain the most benefits.
