Spinal Decompression

What is Spinal Disc Decompression?

While the Atlas Orthogonal procedure focuses on a misaligned atlas bone affecting nerves as they exit the brain, spinal disc decompression focuses on the discs and joints that can affect nerves as they exit through the sides of the spine.

Many disc issues are too serious or advanced for complete resolution with Atlas Orthogonal alone.

The decompression therapy uses computer-aided technology to gently create spaces between discs to reduce pressure that causes them to bulge and ultimately herniate. This non-surgical treatment choice works where chiropractic has fallen short or is no longer a treatment option. The decompression session is gentle painless, and routinely provides initial symptomatic relief.

By using computerized traction forces, spinal decompression therapy increases circulation to the damaged disc, promoting hydration and access to vital nutrients, which promotes healing of the disc and any nerve damage that may be present. The goals of the decompression modality are to address the cause of the nerve pain: to relieve the compressive forces on the disc, which allows for the nerve to heal and restore its proper functioning.

How Can Spinal Decompression Therapy Help?

Spinal disc compression therapy helps to:

  • Relieve compression on pain sensitive spinal nerves
  • Enlarges diminished disc spaces, creating a greater opening for nerves to exit from the spine
  • Alleviates pressure on the discs, allowing for disc rehydration and an influx of vital nutrients
  • Removes compressive forces, enabling irritated nerves to heal and regenerate
  • The ultimate goal is to provide lasting pain relief, by removing the compressive forces on the pain sensitive spinal nerves

This decompression therapy could reduce your pain and prevent you from requiring spine surgery to correct your condition.
