Spinal Decompression Therapy in Stillwater

Model of spineAnyone with disc injuries knows how painful the condition can be, and Hall Family Chiropractic Clinic is here to help. The discs are fluid-filled “cushions” between the vertebrae of your spine. Unfortunately, the constant pressure of gravity and our day-to-day lives can compress and damage these cushions and push them out of place, resulting in things like bulging or herniated discs.

The damaged disc pressing on nearby nerve roots typically causes the pain you feel from these conditions. Most medical doctors recommend surgery in these cases, but chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression therapy may be able to help you avoid the need for surgery.

How It Works

Spinal decompression therapy uses a specialized table that the patient lies on. We strap their body and feet to the table, which then applies a gentle stretch to the spine. The amount of stretch is tailored to your needs and starts at a very gentle level that feels soothing and relaxing. The table holds the stretch for a few seconds, then releases for a few seconds. This process is repeated for the length of your session.

With regular decompression sessions over a few weeks or months, the pressure on the discs is relieved, allowing them to move back into their proper position and reduce or eliminate the stress on the nerve roots that causes pain.

We’ll talk you through the whole process and explain everything we’re doing before we do it. The therapy is comfortable and relaxing for most patients.

Who We Can Help

Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy can be ideally suited for people with disc damage, low back pain, sciatica, a reverse cervical curve or radicular pain into the legs or arms. Although it can be very beneficial in most cases, some people should not receive this treatment, such as those with osteoporosis. Your doctor will discuss your health history before recommending this therapy.

Insurance typically does not cover this therapy.
