Five Benefits of Spinal Decompression

Home » Blog » Five Benefits of Spinal Decompression

If you have been plagued with chronic back or neck pain, you know how disrupting it can be to your everyday life. Standing up straight for long periods can hurt; getting comfortable at night can take forever, and simple things like unloading groceries can become extremely painful.

If you’re like millions of Americans living with chronic back pain, you have probably searched for any method to relieve your back pain. Many will turn to invasive surgeries to get rid of the pain, but there is a better alternative: Decompression of the Spine by Dr. Jason Crist at Crist Chiropractic and Wellness in Cool Springs, TN.

What Is Decompression of the Spine?

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help relieve back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off of the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which will take the pressure off of the nerves in the spine responsible for the pain a patient will feel.

By decompressing the spine, water, oxygen and other fluids can work their way back into the discs, allowing them to heal naturally. Spinal decompression is an excellent option for anyone with chronic back pain that wants to get back to living their pain-free life as quickly as possible.

Here are just a few of the benefits of the spinal decompression therapies we offer here at Crist Chiropractic and Wellness:

It’s Non-Invasive

Even if you suffer from severe back or neck pain, spinal decompression can help relieve much of the pain without the need for expensive and invasive surgeries. You can simply schedule an appointment within our office, walk in, have the procedure done, and then potentially walk out pain-free on the same day!

Short Recovery Time

With a traditional spinal surgery, you would likely be bed-ridden for a few weeks while recovering and you might need even more physical therapy afterward before you could return to your everyday life. The best part about working with a chiropractor is they can relieve the pressure on your spine, almost eliminating all pain, and you can then walk out of the office and return home with no pain at all!

Safe for All Ages

Whether you’re young and spry or older in your years, spinal decompression can benefit anyone regardless of their age. The procedure is completely safe and in the hands of a licensed and experienced chiropractor you’ll hardly feel a thing as they relive the pressure on your spine.

No Medication Required

In addition to being a safe procedure that will help your spine heal naturally and relieve pain, you won’t need to pay for expensive prescription drugs or experience the side effects of pain medications. You can simply walk out of our office feeling great, and you can immediately get back to living your normal life except pain-free.

The Procedure is Quick

You don’t need to spend hours waiting in a hospital waiting room to achieve the back pain relief you’ve been searching for! Spinal decompression therapy treatments within our office usually only take around 30 minutes or so depending on each individual’s needs.
