Spinal Decompression Therapy Q&A

What is spinal decompression therapy?

Spinal decompression therapy at Feel Amazing Spine and Joint Institute works by stretching and relaxing your lower spine or neck to reduce low back pain or neck pain. Doing so relieves pressure on targeted structures in your back, including vertebral bones, facets, and spinal discs, that often cause back discomfort.

Our chiropractic specialists are highly trained in revolutionary VAX-D spinal decompression procedures to offer the most effective results possible.

What are the benefits of spinal decompression therapy?

Some of the many benefits you can expect by choosing spinal decompression therapy at Feel Amazing Spine and Joint Institute Institute include:

  • Less low back pain
  • Reduced nerve pressure
  • Better range of motion
  • Easier mobility
  • Reversed disc herniation 
  • Lower risk of future pain
  • No surgery
  • No pain
  • No downtime

Spinal decompression is a conservative, holistic pain-relieving treatment. VAX-D procedures are known to help patients avoid addictive pain medications and invasive surgical procedures. 

Is spinal decompression therapy right for me?

To find out if VAX-D spinal decompression is the best solution for you, experts at Feel Amazing Institute will discuss your medical history and symptoms with you. They check your vital signs and evaluate your spine, back, and range of motion during a physical exam. Your chiropractor may also complete a neurological exam.

At your initial visit to Feel Amazing Institute, your provider often recommends you complete blood tests, nerve function testing, X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to find the root cause of your back pain and develop an effective treatment.

What should I expect during spinal decompression therapy?

During VAX-D spinal decompression therapy at Feel Amazing Institute, you lie face down on a medical table with a pelvic harness around your hips. You extend your arms forward and grasp two patient-operated hand grips.

The table you’re lying on then separates into two sections, creating a gentle pulling motion in your lower back. This type of motion stretches your ligaments, muscles, spinal discs, and low back joints, which releases negative pressure on these structures to achieve back pain relief.

Is spinal decompression therapy painful?

Spinal decompression isn’t painful, but you may feel some pressure during the treatment. If you experience any discomfort, simply release the hand grips. This halts treatment and the stretching motion of your back. Spinal decompression therapy at Feel Amazing Institute typically lasts about 45 minutes, but every patient is different.

You may need multiple VAX-D spinal decompression treatments to achieve highly effective and long-lasting results.
