The Details Behind Spinal Decompression for Herniated Discs

Written By Autera Health Center on April 13, 2018

Severe, chronic pain is one of life’s biggest disruptors, and it can damage the quality of everything else in your life. Even the simplest activities are hard to enjoy if your back isn’t working right, which is why seeking treatment for chronic pain is critical. 

Often, back pain doesn’t get better on its own. If the problem is structural damage like a herniated disc, you might need to seek out spinal decompression therapy to restore full functionality. 

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

The treatment might sound strange, but spinal decompression is simply the process of stretching out your spine (usually on a traction table) to alleviate pain from herniated discs and to reduce instances of pinched nerves to provide pain relief. The procedure is entirely nonsurgical, and it can give you plenty of back benefits, including the following: 

  • Promotes optimal healing for herniated discs
  • Prevents further damage
  • Gradually repositions herniated discs for restored wellness
  • Lowers pressure on discs to better allow healing nutrients to flow in and repair it internally. 

Understanding Spinal Decompression Treatment

During treatment of spinal decompression for herniated discs, you will lie on a motorized table with your hips in a harness that moves your lower body. This allows for controlled decompression in a pain-free process that feels like nothing more than a gentle stretch. 

After several appointments, your pain from herniated discs will be significantly reduced, often even gone completely.
