Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a nonsurgical treatment for severe lower back pain and sciatica. The FDA-cleared technique slowly lengthens and decompresses your spine, creating negative pressure within the discs. This negative pressure offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Relieving pressure on pinched nerves
  • Helps to reposition bulging discs
  • Pulling materials that have broken through your disc back into place

Spinal decompression isn’t linear traction, although some people may confuse the two. Spinal experts suggest that spinal decompression helps to create a revitalized environment for healing, by drawing nutrients, oxygen, and fluids into your disc.

What does spinal decompression treat?

Your provider at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center typically recommends spinal decompression to alleviate back pain due to:

  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Pinched nerve
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis

The techniques also relieve pain following surgery along with leg pain from sciatica. 

Does spinal decompression hurt?

Your provider at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center makes sure you’re comfortable throughout your treatment session, which usually lasts 30 minutes. 

You lie down on a motorized table and are fitted with a harness. The harness is designed for optimal decompression of your low back or neck. 

You feel a slow lengthening of your spine as your discs are gradually decompressed and relieved of pressure. This shouldn’t hurt. If you feel discomfort at any point, you press a patient safety switch to stop the decompression at any point. 

As a side note, although some patients with extensively injured discs have reported mild discomfort in the first few sessions, their discomfort is virtually eliminated in subsequent visits.

How many spinal decompression treatments do I need?

Your provider tailors the treatment plan to your specific condition. A typical treatment plan is about 12-20 sessions staggered over 4-6 weeks. However, some conditions require fewer visits, while others require more. 

Many patients report relief from pain and other symptoms during the first few treatment sessions, although results vary. Most notice a dramatic relief in pain at the end of the treatment regime.
