Spinal Decompression Q & A

What is spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression is a technique to relieve serious low back pain and sciatica without surgery. The procedure works by slowly stretching and then releasing your spine in a controlled fashion to reduce pressure on your spinal discs. Spinal decompression directly addresses the underlying structural issue that’s causing your pain and dysfunction.

FDA-cleared treatment offers many benefits, including:

  • Alleviating pressure on pinched nerves
  • Helping to reposition bulging discs
  • Pulling spinal disc materials back into the proper position

Spinal professionals suggest the treatment creates a revitalized environment for healing in your spine, by drawing nutrients, oxygen, and fluids into your disc.

Why would I need spinal decompression?

Your provider at Valley Spinal Care Kierland typically recommends spinal decompression to alleviate:

  • Low back pain
  • Leg pain
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Facet syndrome

Spinal decompression also helps minimize neck pain caused by a herniated disc, bulging disc, or degenerated disc.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for spinal decompression?

Your provider at Valley Spinal Care Kierland consults with you to understand your medical history and past treatments. They conduct a thorough examination. 

Spinal decompression may be appropriate for you if you’ve noticed little change in your symptoms after treatments like physical therapy, epidurals, or previous back surgeries. 

Does spinal decompression hurt?

Your provider at Valley Spinal Care Kierland makes sure you're comfortable throughout your treatment session. You're fitted into a harness and comfortably recline on a motorized table. 

You feel your spine slowly lengthen and stretch, as your discs are gradually decompressed. The motions are gradual and controlled. 

You usually feel relief from pressure, but the spinal decompression process shouldn't hurt. Most treatments take only 30-45 minutes. 

How many spinal decompression treatments do I need?

Your provider at Valley Spinal Care Kierland tailors your spinal decompression treatment to your specific condition. A typical treatment plan includes about 10-30 sessions staggered over 4-6 weeks. However, some conditions require fewer visits, while others require more. 

If 'you've been suffering from back pain or leg pain, but want to avoid taking medications or undergoing surgery, call the office or schedule an appointment online to find out whether you're an appropriate candidate for spinal decompression.
