Federal Way Spinal Decompression Therapy

Bastron Chiropractic in Federal Way offers Spinal Decompression Therapy, the most advanced non-surgical and non-invasive breakthrough treatment for herniated and bulging discs. Spinal Decompression Therapy is painless and drug-free.

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

What is the theory behind decompression? How does it work?

An experimental study has shown that in non-degenerated, but bulging discs (something your MRI or CT scan would show), decompression can lower the pressure inside the disc. This negative pressure may then draw or suck the displaced disc material more towards the center of the disc and away from your nerves. For many patients this can mean pain relief because a compressed nerve is a painful nerve. If the pressure on the nerve is released, it can begin to heal. Spinal decompression therapy is designed to assist the body’s natural tendency to heal itself because sometimes it needs a little help. If the disc can be moved even a small amount away from the nerve, this can be enough to decrease inflammation and irritation.

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.
