Millions of people are disabled due to chronic low back pain and various conventional treatment options are prescribed – pain medications, bed rest, physical therapy, epidural injections, and spinal surgery. And yet many people who are suffering don’t seek treatment because they’re afraid of surgery, long recovery times, and loss of mobility. The great news is that a safe, non-surgical, FDA-cleared, and effective alternative now exists – Spinal Decompression Therapy. Bastron Chiropractic is one of the few clinics in Federal Way providing Spinal Decompression Therapy to our patients.

What conditions can benefit from Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Anyone who has back pain or neck pain caused in whole or in part by a damaged disc may be helped by Spinal Decompression Therapy. These conditions include:

  • Bulging/Herniated Discs
  • Sciatica
  • Back Pain/Neck Pain
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Numbness/Weakness of the Arms or Legs
  • Spinal Stenosis

How does Spinal Decompression Therapy work?

Spinal Decompression Therapy implements advanced technology to apply a traction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica. Spinal Decompression provides gentle traction of the spine through the use of a computerized decompression table by slowly pulling and releasing, relieving pressure from the spine. The reduction of pressure inside the disc allows oxygen, water, and nutrients to flow back into the disc. Returning nutrients back into the disc can reverse degeneration, relieve pressure on the nerve roots, and allow healing to take place. Clinical studies show that the end result is a strong, healthy, properly functioning disc in over 80% of Spinal Decompression Therapy patients.

During each Spinal Decompression session, the decompression table is customized for your body. We start slowly to make sure you’re comfortable and then build on the process as you heal. Heat sometimes will be applied to ease you into each session and ice to reduce sore muscles and inflammation after.

Each treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes. Some patients listen to music, watch a movie, or even nap. Most patients find the sessions to be comfortable and relief of pain can sometimes be noticed in the first few sessions depending on the severity of their condition.

Are there any side effects to Spinal Decompression Therapy?

Unlike pain medications and surgery, Spinal Decompression Therapy shows no side effects after treatment. In some cases, there may be small muscle spasms for a short period after the treatment. However, these subside within a few hours.
