Spinal Decompression is one of the valuable services we offer at Coastal Chiropractic, located near Clearwater. This is a successful treatment for compressed discs. Compressed spinal discs can cause:

  • Herniated discs
  • Sciatica
  • Bulging discs
  • Tingling of hands and feet
  • Pain in the extremities
  • Hip pain
  • Degenerated discs

Pain can get in the way of activities of daily living, as well as affecting emotional and mental health.

How Spinal Decompression Works

Spinal Decompression is a non-invasive therapy. A Doctor of Chiropractic in our Clearwater area office will supervise your treatment. Treatment starts with you laying on your back on a specialized padded traction table as special computer software guides the movement of your spinal traction. The area(s) of focus is your area(s) of injury, that is the lumbar, thoracic, sacral, or cervical spine. You will feel your spine pulling slightly as it is gently stretched to create space between the discs.

The gentle stretch and release of your spine allows misaligned discs, such as herniated or bulging discs, to return to their proper position. Pressure on spinal nerves is relieved. The process increases the flow of water and nutrients to the discs. This rehydrates the discs, allowing them to heal, preventing further damage and pain. You may feel tender directly afterward but because the therapy is non-invasive, you will be able to get back to your activities quickly.

The therapy takes about 30-45 minutes over a series of 12-20 sessions. Close to 40% of decompression patients report feeling a difference after only 2-3 weeks of treatment.

Are you a Candidate for Spinal Decompression in Clearwater?

Spinal Decompression in Clearwater might be right for you if you have:

  • pain in your neck or back
  • tried traditional and alternative treatment approaches without long-lasting results
  • been diagnosed with a degenerated disc, sciatica, herniated disc, or a bulging disc
  • taken medication but only feel results while the medication is in effect

Spinal decompression in Clearwater is not appropriate for patients who are pregnant, being treated for bone or spinal cancer, or who have a medical fusion in the pain area.

What you should do. . .

If you find that you are having pain, it’s best to get a formal diagnosis from a doctor before beginning treatment. Your physician’s diagnosis will help your chiropractor design the right treatment for you.

What we do. . .

Our doctors are committed to training, research and excellence. We are committed to treating the cause of the problem, the disc, not the symptoms.

We will consult with you and review your MRI. Our doctor will perform an exam. Your treatment schedule will be determined, and we will make sure that all of your questions are answered. If spinal decompression is right for you, you will be placed on the table and receive a therapy session. After treatment, you will have an ice pack or cold-laser treatment to accentuate the healing process. You will then be given valuable information to read and review.
