What is Spinal Decompression Therapy?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical treatment for certain back and neck conditions that aims to relieve pain and promote healing. It involves stretching the spine to reduce pressure on the spinal discs, which are the cushions between the vertebrae. This can help relieve nerve compression and improve blood flow to the affected area, alleviating pain and other symptoms. Spinal decompression therapy can be performed using various techniques, including manual traction, mechanical traction, and decompression tables.
Techniques used in Spinal Decompression Therapy
A spinal decompression chiropractor stretches the spine to create negative pressure, which can help relieve pressure on the spinal discs, alleviate nerve compression, and improve blood flow to the affected area. We use various techniques to provide spinal decompression therapy, including manual traction, mechanical traction, and decompression tables.
It involves using the hands to apply gentle, controlled pressure to the spine to stretch it and create negative pressure. This technique is particularly effective for treating conditions such as herniated discs and sciatica.
These specialised tables allow for controlled stretching and traction of the spine. Our chiropractors are trained to use these tables to provide effective spinal decompression therapy that is safe and comfortable for our patients.

How does Spinal Decompression work?
In nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy, the spine is stretched and relaxed intermittently in a controlled manner. The theory is that this process creates a negative intra-discal pressure (pressure within the disc itself), which is thought to have two potential benefits:
- Reduces the size of a bulging or herniated disc, which causes nerve pressure
- Promotes the passage of healing nutrients, into the disc and fosters a better healing environment
Spinal Decompression Session
During spinal decompression therapy for the low back (lumbar spine), patients remain clothed and lie on a motorized table, the lower half of which can move. Then a harness is placed around the hips and is attached to the lower table near the feet. The upper part of the table remains in a fixed position while the lower part, to which the patient is harnessed, slides back and forth to provide the traction and relaxation.
One difference between various decompression therapies is the patient’s position on the table; for example, some devices place the patient in the prone position on the table, lying face down, while other devices have the patient lying supine, face up. Regardless of the method, the patient should not feel pain during or after the decompression therapy even though they will feel a stretch in the spine.
