Nothing makes life more difficult than constant back pain. If you’re suffering from frequent, recurring or chronic pain, you may be wondering what your options are, fearful that surgery is the only thing that can solve your problem. While that’s another option, you should first try the time-tested method of spinal decompression.
Your spine is composed of vertebrae, which are the circular bones that run up the middle of your back, and discs, which are the gel-like cushions that sit between them and create space between the bones. When either bones or discs are injured, the result is discomfort, outright pain, compromised posture and other problems.
Spinal decompression helps to treat a range of conditions, both chronic and acute. One of the most common problems this treatment works for is a bulging disc, which is when your intervertebral disc bulges out beyond its normal radius and into the spinal canal. This can cause pain or discomfort, even though no tear is present.
A herniated disc, on the other hand, is when the disc has torn and part of the nucleus is seeping into the spinal canal. While this might have begun as a bulging disc, the pressure built to the point that it ruptured. Of course, spinal decompression treats many other problems as well, but these are two of the most common.
Spinal decompression works by creating space so the disc can get the room it needs to heal by relieving the area of pressure. Chiropractors and other health professionals use a special traction table or similar device to create traction, or pull your body to create space. It’s perfectly safe and often leads to immediate relief of pain.
In the longer term, spinal decompression also speeds healing. Reducing pressure in the area of the injury causes the body to direct nutrients and healing substances toward it. This helps your body mobilize its natural restorative abilities and speeds healing time.

"I have had back problems and had 2 surgeries and wanting a 3rd. Dr. Day provided a multidisciplinary plan that included chiropractic therapies and pain management. Pain management provided some immediate relief but I had residual pain in my right leg. Steroid injections failed. Dr Day recommended decompression table therapy and from the 1st session my leg pain was relieved. I continue with the decompression table therapy to ensure pain relief and to keep surgery at bay. Thank you Dr. Day!"
