Decompression Treatment is Part of Our Chiropractic Treatment Plan

focused on soft-tissue recovery

What is Decompression Treatment?

Decompression therapy in Utah is a non-surgical, non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure where the spine is gently stretched, which reduces the amount of force against the spine. That reduction in pressure allows for nutrient-rich fluids and oxygen to enter the discs of the spine, circulate better, and in turn help the healing process.

This type of traction therapy is used with the goal of relieving discomfort in your back, neck, and legs. It can also be used in the treatment of bulging or herniated discs.

How Does Decompression Treatment Work?

Using a motorized traction table, or similar device, the spine is gently stretched. This change in force on the spine can help relieve some of the pressure to the spinal discs and nerves and promotes healing and pain relief.  

What Are The Benefits of Decompression Treatment?

This type of treatment provides a natural and holistic approach to pain treatment and is a great alternative to treating pain with medication. 

Most of us spend a lot of time sitting during the day. Whether it’s while work, driving, flying, or playing video games, sitting for extended periods of time can take its toll. Decompression therapy can help relieve pain associated with sitting.

What Typically Happens During a Decompression Therapy Session? Is it Similar to Traction?

A decompression session can last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Depending on the treatment plan, sessions can be done in as many as 15 to 30 sessions but it typically takes about 6 to 8 sessions before patients will start noticing a difference.

Laying on a motorized traction table, you will have a harness strapped around your lower back and lie either face down or face up. The harness is linked to a computer controlled by one of our trusted chiropractors here at Axcess. During the sessions, your spine will move through gentle cycles of being stretched and then released. These sessions can be very relaxing and it’s not uncommon that a patient might fall asleep while receiving treatment.
