Spinal Decompression

Nonsurgical or surgical spinal decompression can reduce the pressure on affected areas and allow you to move with ease. Dr. Jeff Snyder can tell you how spinal decompression may facilitate your recovery.

What to Expect from Spinal Decompression

Patients may be eligible for nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy. Non-surgical spinal decompression involves the use of traction to stretch the spine. This gentle procedure reduces pressure on and may induce retraction of herniated and bulging disks. With less pressure on the area, the body may continue with the healing process.

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression

This non-invasive therapy is often included as part of an effective treatment plan offering benefits like:

  • Improved oxygen, blood flow and movement of nutrients to an affected area, promoting healing.
  • Reduced pressure on injured disks often causing a retraction of bulging or herniated disks.
  • Decreased pressure on surrounding nerves and structures.
  • Being able to perform daily activities and exercises more easily.
  • Reduced pain in the back or neck.

Individuals may require a series of in-office treatments. Each session may last from 15 to 30 minutes. Patients often experience less discomfort, inflammation and muscle tension soon after a session.
