Spinal decompression is the leading form of spinal traction used in the treatment of back pain related to disc and other associated conditions.

In simple words this is a technique of spinal disc rehabilitation used by chiropractors. This technique accumulates by stretching the spine and relieving the pressure on the spinal discs.

The primary goal of non-surgical or surgical spinal decompression therapy is to stretch the spinal vertebral joints without causing the contraction of spinal muscles.

Non-surgical spinal decompression is indicated for the persons who are experiencing chronic debilitating symptoms because of degenerative disease of vertebral discs leading to spinal stenosis, characterized by persistent and chronic lower back pain that affects physical independence, progressive degenerative joint disease marked by appearance of complications like bladder indulgence, bowel lewdness,numbness, paresthesia, or sciatica, spinal disc herniation that affect the functioning of nerves, bony outgrowth due to constant rub or friction, posterior facet syndrome or radiculopathy (damage to spinal nerve roots).

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Neck pain and back pain is the main symptom of spinal compression. It occurs naturally as a result of degenerative changes combined with years of strain related to repetitive motion and supporting the weight of the upper body. Spinal decompression therapy helps the person to recover from the spinal compression pain. Spinal decompression therapy means that the pressure placed on the vertebrae, discs, and joints of the spine is relieved. This therapy helps to allow the spine to return to normal alignment and potentially relieve pressure on surrounding nerve roots. Spinal decompression can be achieved through the wide range of surgical therapies depending on the severity of your condition. Before having the spinal decompression therapy you should consult your physician to diagnose the spine condition that has resulted from your spinal compression.

Spinal decompression

Spinal decompression is a type of traction therapy applied to the spine in an attempt to bring about several theoretical benefits:

1)It creates a negative intradiscal pressure to promote retraction or to reposition the herniated.

2)It creates a lower pressure in the disc that will cause an influx of healing nutrients and other substances into the disc.

3)Noninvasive solution to pain

4)Safe alternative to pain relievers

Types of spinal decompression therapy

Spinal decompression surgery is the best surgery to relieve pain caused by pressure, or compression, on the spinal cord and/or nerve roots. This service recover collapsed disks, thickened joints, bony growths can narrow the spinal canal and the spinal nerve openings of the body. This therapy also recovers loose alignment. Surgery does not correct the underlying degeneration of the vertebrae due to wear and tear of aging, however, so a return of symptoms is possible. Depending on the extent of stenosis, one vertebra (single-level) or more (multi-level) may be involved. There are several types of spinal decompression therapy.  These therapies could reduce your pain and prevent you from requiring spine surgery to correct your condition.


spinal decompression therapyLaminectomy: This process includes removal of the entire bony lamina, a portion of the enlarged facet joints and it thickened ligaments of spinal cord and nerves.

Laminectomy: Laminotomy is the removal of a small portion of the lamina and ligaments, usually on one side.

Foraminotomy: It is the removal of bone around the neural foramen – the space between vertebrae where the nerve root exits the spinal canal.

Laminoplasty: It is the expansion of the spinal canal by cutting the laminae on one side and swinging them open like a door. It is used only in the cervical area.
