Spinal Decompression

How does spinal decompression work?

Spinal decompression provides a non-surgical and drug-free treatment that helps to repair spinal discs that are damaged or degraded. By reducing the pressure on the spine and creating space between the vertebrae, the blood flow through your spine is improved. Improved circulation means that the vertebrae and discs are better supplied with oxygen, water, and the essential nutrients for cell and tissue health and repair. In addition, during decompression, the slight separation of the vertebrae creates a vacuum which can help to suck herniated discs back into the correct space.

Spinal decompression can be performed manually or with a specially designed decompression bed. The point of the treatment is to apply distraction tension to the spine without causing a muscle spasm to occur at the same time. The use of a traction table can help to apply steady pressure and the appropriate levels for effective treatment.

What conditions are helped with spinal decompression?

Spinal decompression therapy helps to provide relief for a wide range of painful conditions. Patients typically experience improvement in lower back pain, neck pain, and radiant pain in the arms and legs. Dr. Kielur uses spinal decompression to treat a wide variety of injuries and conditions including:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Facet Syndromes
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Post-surgical patients
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis

What happens during spinal decompression treatment?

When you have spinal decompression treatment with Dr. Kielur, you will position yourself comfortably on the decompression bed and Dr. Kielur or one of his team members will fit you with the harness and support system to stabilize your body. A computer system is used to pull on your body to stimulate a zero-gravity effect, which gently creates space between your vertebrae. This allows discs to return to their correct positions and improve your circulation. Spinal decompression treatments usually take 30-45 minutes and are described as comfortable. You can wear loose fitting clothing during treatment. You may experience relief after just one session, but you should attend the recommended number of sessions to enjoy the full benefits of spinal decompression treatments.

If you have questions about spinal decompression, make an appointment with Dr. Kielur. He will talk to you about your condition and determine if spinal decompression will help. He will also answer any of your questions about the treatment.
