Spinal decompression therapy is often added to treatment plans for patients suffering from structural shift and nerve compression. Throughout life, normal wear and tear is seen on the spine. Over time, the impact of sports, injuries, and sedentary lifestyles can cause a decrease in fluid within the discs, causing them to lose shape. In turn, the disc can then bulge or herniation may occur. The displaced disc compresses, or pinches the nerves. This leads to a variety of symptoms such as:
- Low back pain
- Radiating arm and leg pain
- Neck pain
Spinal decompression therapy works to enhance the space between the joints, alleviating the pressure on the disc, which will then relieve the compression of the nerve. Our highly trained chiropractor uses traction, distraction, and body positioning to open up the spinal column and reposition the affected disc. Spinal decompression therapy can also be of help to patients with other ailments like arthritis, degenerative disc disease, and facet joint pain. This form of therapy is a great noninvasive method as opposed to traditional surgical options to treat recurring back and neck pain.

Dr. Becker is an excellent physician, he took the time to assess and explain my condition and course of treatment. He listens, which is important to me in the sense that I feel that my visits are personalized, and not generic. I was referred to Dr. Becker after several attempts in treating neck and arm pain with other chiropractors. He is the only doctor to not only relieve pain and reduce symptoms, but correct poor habits and posture.
