Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression in Peoria

Decompression can relieve your painful symptoms

Some patients dealing with disc problems (cervical and lumbar) are benefiting from spinal decompression therapy.

Pressure from our weight, trauma from an accident and other causes can increase the pressure on a weakened disc. In extreme cases, the soft pulpy center of the disc can escape. That can be quite painful.

We use the latest technology to help relieve the effects of back pain due to herniated and degenerated discs. Since discs are constantly under weight-bearing pressure, they can be slow to heal. By gently “stretching” your spine, we help relieve pressure and enhance healing. This is called disc decompression.

First, we’ll have you lie down on our specially-equipped table. Then, ever so slowly, we’ll stretch your spine. And then relax it. Stretch. And relax.

Our patients tell us this tractioning process is quite pleasant, even relaxing. Because they don’t feel the need to “guard” their spine, each sequence helps the damaged disc receive nourishment, expel cellular waste and enjoy reduced pressure. Then, healing can begin.

While not a cure-all, our decompression table is highly effective, especially when combined with chiropractic care. Our experience shows that decompression can be helpful in supporting cases prone to frequent relapses.
