Spinal Decompression in Murfreesboro TN

Non-Surgical Spinal Relief in Murfreesboro, TN

Chronic neck and back pain impacts day-to-day life. Taking painkillers only gives temporary pain relief and is not safe for long-term use. Spinal decompression therapy is a safe and non-invasive procedure providing effective pain relief.

Spinal decompression is a treatment used by our chiropractors to relieve pain and improve function in the spine. It involves stretching the spine and releasing pressure on the discs between the vertebrae. This treatment can be helpful for conditions such as bulging or herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and chronic back pain.

Dr. Oscar Noriega and the team at Revolution Chiropractic Murfreesboro use spinal decompression techniques and hands-on chiropractic methods to treat sciatica, herniated discs, and other causes of back pain.

What Is Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Spinal decompression involves using a motorized traction unit to stretch your spine. Back traction helps remove the pressure accumulated in the soft, gel-like discs between spinal vertebrae while reducing pressure on the spinal nerves. It also alleviates herniated discs and encourages healthy body circulation.

You will experience alternating stretch and relaxation cycles through the session.

Why May I Need Spinal Decompression?

There is always the chance of the discs in your spinal vertebrae move out of position, getting damaged, herniated, or starting to  bulge. Disc problems can be painful and affect your movement. Spinal decompression therapy helps by stretching the vertebrae to provide enough room for the discs’ realignment.

Though spinal decompression is usually used to treat disc-related problems, it may also use it to treat conditions like:

  • Failed back surgery
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Broken or fractured vertebrae
  • Facet syndrome
  • Pain caused by car accidents, work or sports injuries
  • Chronic pain after surgeries
  • Repetitive stress
  • Osteoporosis
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Back pain and discomfort in pregnant women
  • Back pain or neck pain not getting treated by regular spinal treatment

Benefits Of Spinal Decompression Therapy

There are multiple benefits associated with spinal decompression therapy besides immediate pain relief. They include:

  • Improved nerve function
  • Better circulation
  • A non-invasive, non-surgical, and drug-free pain management option
  • Improved movement and mobility
  • Reduced stress and tension

Different Types Of Spinal Traction

There are various types of spinal traction we may perform based on the pain area. It includes:

  • Lower back traction
  • Neck decompression
  • Lumbar decompression
  • Mid-back decompression

What To Expect During Spinal Decompression Treatment?

At Revolution Chiropractic Murfreesboro, we use a  motorized table for spinal decompression treatment. The table has two halves; one half is stationary, and the other moves back and forth. The upper body rests on the stationary portion and the bottom half of your body on the moving portion.

A harness is placed around your hips to attach the bottom half of your body to the table. As part of the procedure, the table moves back and forth. This motion gently pulls on your vertebrae to stretch and relax your spine. It also helps any protruding discs and tissue to move back in place.

What Happens After Spinal Decompression?

Each session lasts about 30-45 minutes, and most people require 15 to 30 sessions over a month or two. Spinal decompression therapy isn’t painful. You may only feel a stretch in your back.

After the spinal decompression session, Dr. Oscar Noriega may also guide you about the excercises that promotes healing.
