Decompression is a powerful modality for treating back pain
In cases of severe spinal injury, in which the back pain is excruciating and omnipresent, surgical decompression therapy is used to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Because of the difficulty in determining the degree to which it will actually alleviate back pain, surgical decompression is a last-resort therapy. Nonsurgical decompression, on the other hand, is a form of motorized traction that changes the position of the spine to alleviate pressure in the spinal discs. At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, we use nonsurgical decompression to help people with the following conditions find relief:
- Persistent back pain
- Herniated discs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Facet joint syndrome
