What Can Spinal Decompression Treat?
Spinal decompression therapy can be used to treat and manage a range of conditions including:
- Herniated disc
- Bulging disc

- And more
For many people, decompression therapy can provide a safe, effective alternative to surgery while also minimizing (and potentially eliminating) the need for pain medication. At Watkins Family Chiropractic, we will always start with a consultation and examination to understand what you’re dealing with and how it can best be treated. Spinal decompression is helpful for many people.
Our goal is always to find the best treatment option for your needs.
How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?
Decompression Therapy is a computerized, traction-based treatment that provides relief to a targeted area of your spine, allowing it to “decompress.” Your spine is made up of individual vertebrae with discs in between each of them. These discs are designed to hold your spine together, absorb force, and allow your back to move as needed.
Over time, however, these discs can start to wear down, bulge, or herniate. This results in pain, discomfort, limited movement, and more. Left unchecked, these symptoms will continue to get worse. Decompression therapy addresses disc-related issues by gently pulling the vertebrae and creating a small vacuum of negative pressure. This provides relief to specific discs and helps them pull in water, oxygen, and other nutrients so that they can heal. It can help reduce the pressure placed on the spinal nerves by bulged or herniated discs.
Is Spinal Decompression Safe?
Spinal Decompression Therapy is considered to be very safe when supervised by a professional. Unlike surgical options, spinal decompression is non-invasive, does not involve any incisions or anesthesia, and there is no downtime afterwards. As with a traditional chiropractic treatment, you’ll be able to leave as soon as the session is complete.
At Watkins Family Chiropractic, we ensure all of our patients are as comfortable as possible during their treatment. The treatment process itself takes around 20-25 minutes. Many of our patients find it to be very relaxing. For the best results, multiple treatments will likely be needed. Before beginning treatment, we’ll discuss a road map and plan accordingly.
