Spinal Decompression in Dalton GA– What is it?

Spinal Decompression - What is it?


Spinal decompression is a form of motorized traction that can relieve back pain due to a bulged, herniated, or degenerative disc. It works by stretching the spine and creating negative pressure in the disc. This negative pressure can help to retract a bulged disc removing pressure from the surrounding nerves.

Spinal decompression has been used to help patients with:

  • Neck Pain
  • Sciatica - pain down the leg
  • Bulging or Herniated Discs
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Injured Spinal Nerve Roots

Treatments can last 30 to 45 minutes, and most patients will need multiple visits to relieve pain and discomfort. The treatment is generally relaxing and comfortable.

Who's Not a Candidate

Some patients have conditions that are not right for spinal decompression. Here's a short list:
