What is Spinal Decompression?

Spinal decompression is a manual technique that uses the force of traction (or pulling) on the spine to elicit its pain-relieving and healing effects. To do, our chiropractor has you lie down comfortably on a table. He may utilize straps or devices to secure your hips in place. Then, using gentle yet targeted force, he will pull along the long-axis of your spine to "decompress" injured tissues. This traction force has a unique ability to draw in healing fluids toward the treatment area and can help realign, reshape, and rehydrate injured tissues.

Conditions Treated with Spinal Decompression by our Mount Pleasant Chiropractor

Spinal decompression is primarily used to manage and relieve back pain and neck pain, but it can also help with arm or leg pain if the source of such symptoms are related to issues in the spine. Here are a few specific conditions that may benefit from the type of non-surgical spinal decompression our Mount Pleasant chiropractor provides in his clinic:

  • Disc herniation and bulging disc: if a disc becomes subject to sudden twisting or high pressure, especially if it's been overloaded repeatedly over time or if a person's nutrition and hydration is poor, then an intervertebral disc may rupture and leak out its inner fluid (herniate) or be pressed into an abnormal position (bulge); either scenario can lead to compression and irritation of nearby structures
  • Nerve root compression: this includes conditions like cervical radiculopathy, lumbar radiculopathy, and the more specific nerve root compression called sciatica (compression of the sciatic nerve)
  • Spinal joint misalignments (subluxations): stress, personal injury, repetitive movement, heavy lifting, or poor posture can lead to minor misalignments within the many joints of the spine, which can trigger nearby pain receptors and cause reflexive muscle guarding, spasms, and tenderness
  • Tension headaches: pain that feels like a tight band around the head can be caused by tension headaches, which are often related to muscle and joint imbalances within the spine
