Everything You Wanted to Know About Spinal Decompression Therapy

Written By Duluth Chiropractic and Wellness Center on May 5, 2021

Spinal Decompression Spinal decompression: is it painful? That’s the most common question we get about this type of therapy. The answer is a definite no to the point that there are many people who come to Duluth Chiropractic and Wellness Center who prefer it over certain types of massage therapy.

Spinal Decompression Therapy 101

The goal of non-surgical spinal decompression is to alleviate pressure in your spine that’s restricting blood flow, triggering inflammation, and leading to either bulging or herniated discs. Decompression helps your back and spine, and the extra space provides immediate pain reduction and often eliminates it. And to make sure the pain stays away, decompression gently coaxes your spine back into alignment.

3 facts about non-surgical spinal decompression:

  1. Sessions run 30-45 minutes
  2. Any discomfort can be immediately addressed
  3. There’s zero pain

While you may not notice results right away, your body does and immediately starts healing. As for how many sessions to feel, that varies based on what ails you and how severe your symptoms are.

Results published in a journal article in Orthopedic Technology Review showed immediate resolution of symptoms and were still feeling great after a 90-day checkback. Another article in Journal of Neurological Research reported success rates exceeding 70% for both single and multiple herniated discs. And this study showed better and better low back pain relief as patients underwent greater numbers of chiropractic treatments. In addition, patients regained much of their daily life independence.
