Spinal Decompression at Cassista Chiropractic Office

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-invasive option for patients who suffer from chronic or severe back pain, neck pain, herniated discs or spinal degeneration. The goal of this therapy is to alleviate pressure on the nerves and discs in the spine, allowing the body to naturally heal and relieve pain.

During a session, the patient lies down on a special table that is designed to gently stretch the spine. By using a combination of intermittent traction and relaxation, spinal decompression can create a “milking motion” in the spine which helps move a herniated or slipped disc back into its proper position. This, in turn, can increase the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the affected area which can speed up the healing process. It also helps open the joint spaces relieving pressure on nerves caused by spinal degeneration.

Some people are concerned it would be painful, but the treatment is very gentle, and generally it feels good to patients that have been suffering from pain and pressure. Some patients even report falling asleep during treatment!
