Spinal Decompression  Highlands Ranch, CO

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine. By decompressing the spine, it permits water, oxygen and other fluids to work their way back into the discs allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain who wants to get back to living a pain-free life as quickly as possible.

How It Helps Your Pain

Disc decompression therapy uses a special traction table equipped with advanced computer technology. It gently and progressively stretches your spinal column, alleviating abnormal pressure on the discs between your vertebrae. The “pumping” action creates negative pressure within the discs, allowing bulges or herniations to retract, much like water being drawn into a water pistol.

Don’t worry—the therapy is gentle and gradually adjusted to prevent soreness after your session. Patients are comfortably positioned on the table, which slowly applies the appropriate tension. Some people even fall asleep during the process. The machine also has safety features, allowing patients to halt the process if they experience any discomfort.

Benefits You Can Expect

This therapy is ideal for individuals suffering from neck or lumbar disc bulges or herniations, especially those experiencing radiating pain, numbness, or tingling in their extremities. If you’re tired of living with this discomfort, disc decompression therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking.

While this therapy offers remarkable results for many, it’s important to note that insurance does not cover this service. However, it provides an excellent non-surgical alternative for those seeking relief from disc-related discomfort.
