Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression

Nonsurgical spinal decompression works by carefully stretching the spine, taking pressure off herniated discs or pinched nerves. When the pressure is taken off the spine, it helps promote the healthy flow of water, oxygen, and other essential fluids into the discs and throughout the spine, subsequently bringing the body back to its normal and healthy state.

Nonsurgical spinal decompression can treat:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Damaged spinal joints
  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots

How Is Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression Done?

There is not much preparation needed before a spinal decompression treatment. You remain fully clothed and Dr. Taylor places a harness around your torso and pelvis. As you lie on a comfortable, computer-controlled table, Dr. Taylor operates the computer, customizing the treatment as needed to get the best results according to your specific needs.

Spinal decompression treatments generally last 20 to 30 minutes. For best results, you may require 20 to 48 treatments over five to nine weeks. Other treatments that may be combined for even better results are:

  • Massage therapy
  • Heat or cold therapy
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Chiropractic adjustments
