The Results of Spinal Decompression

If you have low back pain from a disc-related issue, spinal decompression may be an option for you. It’s noninvasive and doesn’t involve taking medications. We’ve been fortunate to see numerous people who have regained their full function thanks to spinal decompression. If you feel uncertain about having a surgical procedure or haven’t gotten results from other avenues, it may be the perfect solution for you.

Who Spinal Decompression Can Help

There are many conditions and ailments that may respond well to spinal decompression, such as

  • Sciatica
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Facet syndrome
  • Foraminal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis

If you’re wondering whether spinal decompression is right for you, we’ll be happy to evaluate you and make a determination based on our years of clinical experience.

Combining Chiropractic and Spinal Decompression

Some people require only spinal decompression. Others benefit from having spinal decompression in conjunction with chiropractic care. In certain cases, you may have a severe condition and get spinal decompression therapy first. After some sessions, you’ll be ready to add chiropractic care to your plan.

We’ll perform a full evaluation of your conditions and discuss all of your concerns. Based on our examination, we can determine if you can benefit from spinal decompression, chiropractic care or a combination of both.

What to Expect During a Spinal Decompression Session

If you’ve never had spinal decompression before, you’ll want to know what will occur at a session. We have a comfortable spinal decompression table. It’s computerized and can be programmed with your exact needs. Your customized setting will be appropriate for your condition and what’s best for you. You’ll hold a controller in your hands while the table runs through its program, so you can halt the treatment at any time. We’ll get you started, then let you relax for a while until the session is complete.

Most sessions for spinal decompression therapy last for 20 minutes. Typically, we’ll recommend a total of 12-25 sessions spread out over 4-6 weeks.


What can spinal decompression therapy address?

Spinal decompression can address several conditions that result in back or neck pain. These include herniated and bulging discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, foraminal stenosis and spondylolisthesis.

If you’ve had a spinal surgery and it has failed to relieve your pain, you can still be a candidate for spinal decompression therapy.

How does spinal decompression work?

The spinal decompression table gentle stretches your spine. You’ll lie on a comfortable table and be strapped to it for your safety. As the computerized program continues, the machine will use gradual movements to release the pressure around your spinal discs. You’ll have a safety switch in your hand that can turn off the table at any time.

How long will I need to have treatment?

Our recommendations will be based on your particular case and your individual needs. You can likely expect to require 12-25 spinal decompression therapy sessions to achieve the full results. Typically, these treatments will be spread out over a period of 4-6 weeks. We will let you know what we think is best for your case when we evaluate you. Dr. Godwin has years of experience in helping people with disc-related issues and will let you know what is most appropriate for you.

Why does spinal decompression therapy work?

Other options, such as adjustments, physical therapy or traction work for a variety of spinal conditions. What they lack, however, spinal decompression therapy offers. It utilizes a negative pressure in your spine through gentle stretching. Spinal decompression therapy does so slowly enough that your body’s natural “lockdown” response is bypassed.

You can address spinal misalignments and the resulting disc-related problems in a safe, gentle manner with spinal decompression therapy Arlington.
