Spinal Decompression

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

What to Expect from Spinal Decompression

Patients may be eligible for nonsurgical or surgical spinal decompression therapy. Non-surgical spinal decompression involves the use of motorized 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.

Surgical spinal decompression is used for those with more serious cases. This alternative may be suggested for those with bony growths or ruptured disks. Types of surgical spinal decompression include Corpectomy, Laminotomy and Diskectomy. Dr. Lanum will clearly explain your surgical options and help you determine which one may work best for you.

The Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression can complement a range of other therapies, such as massage therapy or acupuncture. 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 up to 45 minutes. Patients often experience less discomfort, inflammation and muscle tension soon after a session.

Surgical spinal decompression may be suggested depending on specific conditions and response to other therapies. There are inherent risks to any surgery which Dr. Lanum will explain. A patient may not feel immediate relief after surgery and may have to wait until the healing process is complete to notice a significant difference.

Symptoms Treated By Spinal Decompression

Non-surgical spinal decompression can relieve chronic low back pain, neck pain and sciatica caused by:

  • Herniated or Bulging Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Facet Syndrome
  • Failed Back Surgery
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal Stenosis

Convenient Relief

Many patients prefer not to use surgery or medication to overcome back pain and for these patients, spinal decompression is a revelation. Not only is surgery not required, but neither are injections, or any drugs at all. 

What Makes Spinal Decompression Effective?

Through non-surgical spinal decompression, the spine is lengthened and decompressed, resulting in negative pressure in the discs. This ultimately creates a vacuum inside the discs that relieves pressure from pinched nerves and helps to move bulging discs back into their correct positions. After consistent spinal decompression treatment, real relief and healing follow.

Many patients report marked improvement after the first couple of sessions.
