Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal Decompression Therapy

Spinal decompression therapy is a treatment, which is considered if you are suffering from lasting back pain, as well as any other related symptoms. This technique works by gently stretching the spine, which is able to change the position as well as the force of the spine.


Spinal decompression therapy is recommended by doctors in order to treat several problems, which include:

  • Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots
  • Back or neck pain or sciatica, which is pain, tingling or weakness that extends down the leg
  • Bulging or herniated disks
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Worn spinal joints, known as posterior facet syndrome


During spinal decompression therapy, you are fully clothed. The doctor then fits you with a harness around the pelvis, as well as another one around your trunk. Then you either lie face up or face down on a computer-controlled table. A doctor operates the computer, and according to your specific needs, the treatment is customized.

The treatment can last around 30 to 45 minutes and you might require 20 to 28 treatments over nearly 2 months. You might also need other types of treatments, before and after the therapy, such as electrical stimulation, heat or cold therapy, as well as ultrasound.


The procedure is generally safe, though some patients may experience a little pain. The treatment is not recommended for everyone as some conditions might lead to risks. Some of the people who are not eligible for the procedure include:

  • Pregnant women
  • Patients who have had spinal fusion
  • Patients who have had multiple surgeries but haven’t recovered
  • Patients having broken vertebrae
  • Patients having an artificial disc, or any other implants, in their spine
  • Patients with failed back surgery
